White-and-gold on black cards
« on: August 01, 2014, 01:04:28 AM »
Here are some cards I made with white gouache and gold sparkly ink. I figured I'd make up for my still-fragile copperplate skills by adding lots of glitz and a really pretty knotwork border. (You can see that I figured out between the first and second card that I should center the name in the box.)

That's really, really pretty!!  I love the border, but your Copperplate is very nice, too!  Congratulations on a job well done!

Oh I like it! The knot is amazing and the overall effect is gorgeous :)
Believe in your Copperplate, it's far better than mine at least ;) LoL
