For my Sweet Pea Stamps card this week I used this gorgeous image by Karen Middleton called Captured:
I love how Karen draws faces. The images are so striking and after colouring this image with my promarkers I felt it didn't really need much in the way of embellishment to make a beautiful card.
I used a DL card blank and matted patterned paper (steampunk-themed paper by Kanban) onto textured silver mirri card. I also cut a decorative frame from the textured mirri card - I love how this card picks up the light and shines but with a lovely matt effect rather than bold gloss.
I edged the image with a silver metallic pen before layering it over the decorative frame and for a simple touch of detail added silver brads in the corners of the cards (I never seem to use brads much these days... time was, I put them on everything! Bring back brads, I say! :D).
