Follow your Dreams


Todays card has been made with another of the Mo Manning Digi Stamps, this one is Claire which is the name of one of my daughters and as she is due to move soon, I thought it was appropriate for her.

Ive printed her and coloured the image with my copic pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto two shades of pink card. The base card is created on a 8"x 8" white card, and the papers are from the Summer Driggs Free Downloads, these I thought were right for the colouring on the image.

I used my first paper and stuck it to a piece of pink pearlescent card, and the second and third layers have been punched with one of my Martha Stewart border punches. The forth mount is a piece of the same pink pearlescent card but Ive put it through my cuttlebug with one of the new embossing folders, I have inked the edge with a cats eye inkpad.

On top of these I have put my mounted image and stamped a sentiment onto white card and layered up in the same way as the mounted image, and this was stuck below the image with the foam tape.

To finish of I have created two flowers with some of my left over papers and with pearl brads and a charm I hung from the bottom one, I have stuck them to my card with some silicone glue and some punched leaves arranged under them.
