Tag Cards with Rialto Bridge

This card is one that I made from Jayne Nestorenko's 01 July workshop.  We were given the Teal and Duck Egg card and just had to cut it to size and make our tags. 

The image, which is Rialto Bridge from Jayne's Just my Imagination Grande Journeys stamp range, on the blue card is actually coloured by Jayne and was supplied originally to show the colours that we could use and also as a test piece for cutting out our tags. The problem was that most of us run out of time to colour this image and ended up using Jayne's image so that we could at least cut out the tags to take home. 

I ended up purchasing a set of the spellbinders that we used so that I could make more as I really liked the way that the card looked. 

Once I had made up the one with the material that Jayne supplied I decided that I would make another but this time in a different colourway and also that I would use an image that I had coloured. I used Core'dinations Gemstones paper for my coloured cardstock with a textured white background. I coloured the card using Spectrum Noir Pens but need to work on my clouds.

Once I had assembled, I sprayed the card with Spray and Sparkle Iridescent Glitter Varnish by Crafter's Companion.  The greeting was made using Spellbinders Label 12 with a faux nestie behind. 

Although I decided to stick to the Rialto bridge as I felt that it did lend itself to this technique, I will definitely be using this technique to make more cards using different images.
