Daring Card Makers - Back to Black

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme this week is

Back to Black

This is a card I made a few months ago for a work colleague who was leaving and is a big Game of Thrones fan.  I found the free image by doing a search and I created the text wording by using a free font maker.

I printed the image twice, coloured it with Promarkers and then with the second image, I coloured all the scales and then individually cut them out, curling them slightly as I glued them in place.

I found some silver card in my stash and layered it with black card and then added the dark brown twine that I also found in my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

  4. Your card is a wonderful keepsake for your GoT colleague! I can't believe you cut out each scale separately to shape them and glue back down - what a labour of love! Fantastic sentiment for someone leaving their job!
    Thank you for sharing your fabulous project with us at the Crafts Galore Encore “Anything Goes” October Challenge. Good Luck and hope to see you again soon!
