Hidden Message

I Love this card... there is so much going on with it! Lots of New things I haven't tried and as you can see I try lots of new things all at the same time all on the same card but hey! I'm pleased with the result!

I wanted a card with natural colours, and I started with this stamp and thought to use it like an artist has just sketched it! Which of course Elizabeth has but to get this look I stamped the image in versamark so the edges were soft then continued by colouring with my pastel pencils originally I wanted a more sepia look but I can't help add a little colour!

The Daisies were so much fun mainly consisting of punches and die cuts! The centre's were cut from circles using double sided adhesive sheet (LOVE) then covering with generous sprinkling of fun flock (Love, Love this stuff!) This whole card is quite tactile and very interactive!

The Hidden Message... I will have a look if there's a tutorial for this on line, it reminds me of a Jacob's ladder. (IF not I will do a tutorial, I think you should always give the unusual a try!) It's not too easy to find the extra message inside but you can easily guess where it is! I've disguised mine with a mosaic of paper, then stamped the message inside! So if you have any questions leave me a comment at the top of my posts and I will endeavour to answer the best I can!

This has to be the most beautiful pastel I have seen in a very long time! I love the softness. It doesn't even look like a stamp! I could frame something like this. How clever to stamp it with versamark then use pastels to color. It still takes a lot of talent to get the shading and depth just right. Truly awesome, Kim.
