Ismaki Challenge


This is a challenge I have not done for a very long time but loved the sketch. I stamped the image (judikins) last night with Promarkers but wasn't sure what to do with it after that. Mental block, AHH!!. Ended up staying in craftroom till 1.30am this morning as I couldn't get the photo I wanted to upload so have had to use this image. Anyway, back to the card, the backing paper is Prima Marketing. I have mat and layered the image and added lace which is a optional theme on the Ismaki Sketch. The swirl and heart are T/Holtz grungeboard. I dont use this often but its very versatile and this time I've sprayed with Glimmer Mists in Antique Brass, Olive Vine & Gold. The gold has a gorgeous shimmer though I dont think this has been picked up. If you click on the piccie for a larger image you may see it in more detail. Rub on sentiment and a couple of gold leaves to finish the card. Made a change making my usual "Cute Cards" and am pleased with the overalll result. Hope you like it too!
