High Drama



This card came from a bunch of things on my desk. I think I can honestly say I've never used chipboard on a card before (and yet I have a whole bunch of if for some reason! lol!).  I simply coloured it with a copic marker - it looks like suede in real life. And the red and orange 1/4 inch paper stripes were inspired by a t-shirt worn by someone on Hoarders or some other gosh-awful show I'm embarrassed to admit to watching! Stamped the Papertrey sentiment and a few dots (this is the Ardyth-version of spatter - there's still some control - I'm working up to actual random spattering!) and added the requisite (for me) stickles to finish off this high-impact card.

Hoarders... Hee hee.

(At least you're not inspired by "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" which I have been known to gawp at on occasion).

Beautiful card my dear :)

WOW for sure! The precision of a series of 1/4 inch stripes defines your style that I love. And as for your own unique spatter, how could you want it to look any more "random" or better than it looks now? Just using spatter at all, on this card, is a brilliant move I never would have thought to make......you always seem to know exactly when enough is perfectly enough.

Wonderful card and thanks for the inspiration.
