Josephine is my favourite fantasy artist. Her work is very definitely feminine and appeals across all ages. There is always much more to her pictures than first meets the eye and they can give a lot of pleasure to the recipient.
This particular card was made using an image from the Josephine Wall project book and CD and is fairly simple – the crucial thing here is printing the topper and papers out using photo setting and in the case of the topper – glossy photo paper. This gives the best depth of colour and definition.
The dolphin backing paper in the photo is also the source of the single dolphin embellishments – just pick a couple of the smaller ones on a spare portion of the backing paper. The lovely middle patterned sheet is made by spraying cosmic shimmer sprays onto pale card. You could also achieve a similar effect by using the alcohol inks.
The metal corners could be bought embellishments, as in this case, or you could die cut some corners from mirri card and it’s always fun to distress it to make it look antiqued rather than shiny gold.
Whatever design you make with this wonderful image, you will spend hours gazing at the detailed underwater scene beneath her hair and the dolphins leaping in the sky – I told you it was fantasy!
The mirri card, cosmic shimmer sprays and the Josephine Wall project book and CD are all available on our website.
