 I would like to share with you the card i made using the Serenity, I hope you like it.
Materials Used.
8" Black card blank
The image is Serenity by DS4J.
I wanted to have a monotone card so i used skin tones and warm grey pens.
Promarkers ivory, blush, oatmeal,sun kissed pink
warm grey 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
The decorative papers are from my stash, i would love to remember the brand but i can not for the life of me.They are left over from a scrapbook i made approx 7 years ago, vintage you might say, also proves crafter's never throw any thing away.
The climbing leaves were cut on my Silhouette Cameo, and the flowers are punched out of card by the wood ware retro daisy punch. White card candy by craftwork cards.
