Good Evening 🙂 Thank you for coming to visit our blog.
We have a few brilliant tutorials to share with you this evening!
Over to the very fabulous Kim Robertson…
Nice to be here with you.
So I was playing with my stamps and I remember the gorgeous lips in the Bite Me set so I decided to have some nice bright lips on a grey background. Electric blue lips would look so good here too but I chose to go for red and glittery!
To start I took a piece of white card and used some grey flannel momento ink and stamped with the Bronte script stamp which everyone knows is one of my absolute favourites, no need to cover the centre as we will be covering that up.
Next I used the same grey ink and a piece of cut and dry to bend in the edges a litte along with a little weathered wood and some London fog ink from momento too. I did go back and add a tiny bit of the black much stronger around the very edge as it really make it a stand out. I set this piece aside for now.
On a smaller piece of card in red momento dew drop ink I stamped the lips and using several distress pens and a black pen and a white gel pen I added all the shade and highlights from the lips.. I drew around the edge of the lips in grey to make them stand forward and added some fangs on the edge of teeth.
The backing piece was also matted onto black card and I added the words that came with the lips which was simply “Bite Me lol”. I used back archival ink for that and got a nice dark image.
I gave the whole back piece a mat and layer in black and white with a little foam under to raise the centre up just sightly, then I was ready for the centre to be added to the card with thicker foam.
To finish it all off I simple added the dot to the I with a square gem some tiny hand cuffs that dangle so cute plus a couple of locks and a key and lastly some shiny stones in the corner.
Here are some other images of the now finished card, the time that took the most i used to get the lips shaded perfectly with several different distress ink pens.
Such a great card.. and thanks for your fantastic tutorial Kim! Love the glossy red lips against the grey.
