Painting the whole of the card with two coats of Traditions Carbon black I began dry brushing from the outer edge to the inner edge working with ever lightening shades of gray until I finished using white at the very centre. It looked like I had dusted it with baby powder!
Once I had finished with the white I began to cover the whole of the white dry brushing with Traditions Quinacridone Violet. This was the only way I could think to achieve the subtle shading I wanted to achieve.
I mixed some of the True Red and a little black to apply some dry brush shading to the heart and then sprayed it with High Gloss sealer. The bow at the top was originally white organza that I swiped with StayzOn black. (it now has a fantastic metallic sheen, love it).
All in all this has been a lot of fun and I've learned a couple of new techniques. Thanks so much for taking the time to look.
