I virtually ran out of square cards a short while ago and had to order some more, browsing I found these beauties (easel cards) on Craftwork Cards.
This is my first go at making one so I was experimenting a bit (so nothing new there then!).
The image is Spirals from Small and Round. The flowers in this image make me thing of spring blossoms so I wanted to colour her in very soft pastels and used ProMarkers to do this. The spiral is highlighted with some white opal Liquid Pearls. I've cut the image out to matches the shape of the easel card. I've then edged it with pink ProMarker.
Here's a picture of it flat so you can see it flat. The papers used are from Wild Rose Studio Antique Library. I used the darker shaded papers to create a border for the lighter shaded papers. The bottom of the image portion of the card is edged with some flat backed pearl trimming from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've also used pearl and clear self adhesive gems.
On the bottom portion of the card I've used a couple of Spellbinders dies to create an area to write backed with the same lovely papers from Wild Rose Studio.
Hope you like my first attempt at an easel card
