Good Evening Ladies, I want to thank you for such a lovely welcome back with your comments Im so happy that you want me back, bless you all and thank you so much for making me feel so wanted.
Anyway todays card has been created for several challenges, firstly is the Just Magnolia one which is a sketch by Dawny P, then Wild Orchids "Girls" and Stampin for the Weekends "Back to School" I hope no one will object me using it for these challenges but as Ive been out of action for three weeks and I thought Id better pull my finger out and try and get motivated to join in.
The image is of Tilda with her School Uniform on which I have masked and then stamped the pile of books behind her, shes then been coloured with my copic pens and cut out with my rotatrim. Ive used some of Karen Sayers (I should like to let you know she has the new Magnolia Stamps in) small stamps around the edge with a catseye ink pad, she has some really lovely little stamps very similar to the Stamp Tapestry ones, which are ideal for popping around the edge of your images I even used some yesterday on my card that I posted below this one.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card, and a really lovely paper from Basic Grey Downloads its a very pretty blue paper with a distressed edge and a bright and cheerful flower pattern all over. Ive cut it into two pieces and then used my sewing machine around the edges, on top of this I have stuck my stamped mounted image with foam tape, after which Ive stuck a piece of spotted ribbon down the side with my sentiment on top in the centre.
To finish of Ive used some of my flowers from Wild Orchids to create a spray in the top left hand corner, they are all different blue roses with a couple of asters either side of the middle rose, and then Ive stuck on my card with some punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered for the following challenges:-
