Todays card has been created for two Challenges, Just Magnolia, "Pleating" and Cute Card Thursday, "New" now Ive taken a bit of a liberty with this one but I think its still ok, as its a new stamp from the Magnolia Stamp Club, and a new method for me anyway, paper Pleating, mind you Im not sure whether its easier with paper than with material as I got in a right old state, but I hope you like the end result.
The main image is Tilda sitting and guess what she has high heels on, like many of you Im not sure Im really in favour of our Tilda growing up quite so fast, anyway Ive masked her and sat her on the stool with the piano behind her, then popped the candlestick on the lid. I then coloured her with my copic pens after which Ive used a pink inkpad to distress the edges and mounted her onto a piece of beige pearlescent card. The sentiment is one that I have in my stash and this was finished in the same way as my stamped image.
My base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of beige pearlescent card, and one of four papers that Ive used from the "Just a Note" nitwit downloads, this one has a load of notes and musical things over it, for my second layer Ive used a check patterned paper and with one of my Martha Stewart border punched down both edges and stuck this on top of my base layer. The third layer is a piece of pink pearlescent card with the third of my papers a sentiment one this time, after which Ive used my sewing machine on it.
The fourth paper was scored and folded into pleats then I cut it into strips and stuck them onto a piece of double sided tape to keep them together while I trimmed up the bottom and stitched a line on my sewing machine to keep them in place. I then stuck this to the underneath of the third layer, over which Ive stuck a piece of check ribbon.
Ive then positioned my stamped mounted image in the centre with the sentiment across the bottom. To finish of Ive made up a bower of roses and babies breathe and stuck them to the left handside top corner.
