Summer in Venice 2

 Here's Summer in Venice 2 - that sounds a bit like the sequel to a film from the Cannes Film Festival! Not at all, just a card made with the same Penny Black stamp as yesterday.......



For this one, I made a background by sponging a panel with distress inks, blending the lines together, then I just stamped the image over that. I love this effect. The sentiment is a stamp by Katysue Designs, and I coloured some white seam binding from The Ribbon Girl with the same distress inks for a bow. The broken line background stamp is by Hero Arts, and the taupe background paper is from the Tea Dance collection by Craftwork Cards



Thanks for all the good wishes about my tooth (or rather, my late lamented tooth and the trouble it caused). I am finally feeling fine again now. 

I'll be back tomorrow with my last elegant lady x

  2. Lovely card Enfys. The colours remind me of a sunny day in Venice. The blended background captures the water of the canals and the warmth of the sun - beautiful.

  13. Ohhhhh, I do like this card too. Using the same stamp, but a whole new look. I really like the background inking. The color blending gives this lovely young lady the illusion of walking in Venice at sunset.

    So glad you are feeling fine again!
