Broken Heart

Hi Folks
I have just been colouring over the last couple of days and this card is
one that I made.
I have been using Velvet card to colour on, with copic and it is really good to us. But,
I have found out that I cannot colour the edges with Distressed inks, I  just cannot  blend the ink.
My fingers do not like to cut out, as you can see with my image!! but, the ink made such a
mess on the card I had no option but to cut out the image, has anyone else who uses
Velvet card have this happen, and if so, how did you overcome the problem
Right onto my card, I have used ( surprise, surprise) another of
Heather Valentin's wonderful images, this time it is
Genevieve Melancholy Moppet, and she looks to me as if
she has been left at the Alter, hence, the title Broken Heart
I coloured every thing but hair and skin with my promarkers, just for a change.
I hope you like my creation

That is a lovely card Janet. I like the way you have cut her out as it makes her stand out on the card. I have had that problem also and I just edge that type of card with the wedge side of a promarker. Some cardstock you just cannot blend ink onto it. Its the finish on the card. love the colours on the card. Kay

This is a lovely card Janet, gorgeous rich colours.
Sorry I can't help with your distress ink problem, I don't use that card stock - I never could ink the edges very effectively until I started to use the Inkylicious Ink Duster brushes.

This is beautiful Janet. Loving the dark colour it is very striking. I have never used DI's on Velvet card so I can't help you.

Your card is lovely, Janet. Nice to see you using Promarkers a bit! What about pan pastels to edge your velvet card? I bought a couple of the melancholy moppets as I thought they were adorable now I just need time to use them! Vee xx
