Anyway here is the card. I began by heat embossing the image onto Kraft card stock and then colouring it using Derwent Inktense pencils. I love the effect these pencils have on Kraft and providing you do not use too much water to blend the colours the card stock holds up really well. I photographed the image a number of times as I added different colours just in case I ruined it I would be able to start again and repeat it up to the point it all went wrong!! With advice from my son I have not completely coloured the image.
The early stages:
I took the finished image, cropped and layered it onto some burgundy card stock before placing in on a square kraft card. Here is the final version:
The challenge at Simon Says Stamp Blog is to use Embossing so I think I am going to enter this card - it will be the first challenge I've entered on this blog.
I used the following:
Funstamps White Embossing Powder
Woodware Square Garden Stamp
Derwent Inktense pencils.
