Magical Creatures

Hi all! Another week has flown by and it’s time for another Corrosive Challenge. This week’s theme is “Magical Creatures”. I’ve got to tell you, this card took me ages to make! I was scouring through a bunch of sketches challenges and came across this one from Wild Orchid Challenges:

This card also qualifies for the challenge #105 at Flourishes to use three patterned papers. I’ve had this angel from Flourishes for a little bit but it hadn’t seen any ink yet. Since I consider angels to be magical, I think it fits the challenge criteria nicely, don’t you? At first I tried something different. I had embossed it in gold, but then I thought it would be too bright and wasn’t in the mood to colour it. I’m not sure why I chose to stamp it in blue, but it kept calling to me. I used a blender pen to pull some of the blue from the outline into the the image and added a wee bit of silver to fill in the ribbon. I also sponged around the edge of the image to soften it up. Here it is:

Here is the rest of how the card came together:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white Strathmore (card size is 5.25 x 5.25), Not Quite Navy and Marina Mist (SU)
Patterned Paper – My Mind’s Eye, SU and something else from my stash (!)
Ink – Marina Mist and Sahara Sand (SU), Encore Silver
Stamp – Flourishes
Accessories – White satin ribbon, Bow Easy, EK Success punch, Tattered Angels “Pearl” Glimmer Mist, dimensionals

Thanks for having a look today! I can’t wait to see what you create too!
