And so we begin...

Seeing as this is a brand new blog that has been wonderfully pimped
by the amazing Janette at Stamping Dragon Designs,
it seemed only fitting that not only should my first blog be a card created
with one of her designs...
also, that it should be something new...
something special,
something that has not been seen anywhere else before...

Using a digi image that has been sitting on my computer for some time,
one that I have been itching to play with,
I began...

Firstly I got my beloved promarkers and coloured the image..
then cut it out using a craft knife so I was left with a stencil..
Picking a background paper I used the promarker through the stencil
in solid colours to create a shadow effect..
and I used sticky pads to add the image slightly off centre..
That paper was then layered onto another darker paper which I had
placed some black lace around..
This was then stuck to a homemade black card blank....
I finished it off with a mixture of black, silver and purple cord, 
some of which already had beads attached,
which I wrapped around some black feathers...
A sentiment layered onto the same papers was the last addition...
