So Suzy Christmas Baubles
I am up on the So Suzy blog today with a card I made with those fabulous little baubles from the November release!
So, how did I make this card?
I spritzed some Dylusion inks onto a sheet of plastic and smooshed water color paper in it and let it dry.
I then took the baubles and inked them in a lighter color and spritzed with water or just spritzed them with water to get kind of a ghosting technique. To be honest with you - I was not thrilled with what I got. I thought it was too much. So what to do - I hate throwing things out (I rarely ever do...) - so I cut the panel diagonally. Thinking half of too much could be good, right?
Fiddled around with it on black card stock and thought it need something else, so I smooshed a scrap piece of card stock in the same color and heat embossed some baubles in white. Fuzzy cut them. And played around placing them onto my card. Settled on a triangle, mounted them with foam tape and heat embossed the sentiment.
Still not happy. But you know what - a little gold embroidery thread and sequins can work wonders!
In the end I really liked my card! Hope you like it as well!
