BIG CARDS – Queen of Spades

Well, I managed it.  I LOVE the intensity of the colour IRL, but not sure if it shows up well enough in a photo. Pretty simple technique – I stamped and embossed the swirls then misted all over with the Cosmic Shimmer mica mist.  I do adore the shimmer over black. I stamped the Queen  – what took the longest was trying various methods (stamping the queen on the background, stamping in white, stamping in black, misting the Queen on white, Copic colouring, coloured pencils, etc) on the stamped queen but in the end I liked the contrast of the B&W (with the face only Copic coloured) so stuck with that and a simple white letter.

Interesting that the colours with black work well.  We spent the day yesterday in Oxford, mostly wandering thru bookstores, so my head is not quite in a crafty place.  I got too many new books on sale, and am more in reading mode than getting sticky, inky and messy.  I am trying something out that I hope will turn out, but that may need to wait for tomorrow!
