Morning Girls, hope you are enjoying your weekend, my hubby has gone of to our local Steam Engine restoration place to volunteer his talents to try and restore the signal box in Lydney, he loves anything to do with steam and I feel this will give him an hobby in which he can satisfy his loss of not being able to work full time, hes retired and he feels rather redundant to society. Anyway we shall see when he gets home tonight whether hes enjoyed himself, I do so hope he has.
Anyway todays card has been created for Mos "Thank heaven for little girls" and Cute Card Thursdays "Sketch by Fran", Ive used this little sweetheart called "Bossy" from Mo Manning, and have printed her onto coated 200gsm card (from Rymans) and then coloured her with my copic pens. I know a lot of you are still having problems with smudging when colouring printed images, I actually use compatible inks from 365 ink and dont have any problems with it, but I do use a coated smooth card rather than just any card and I think this might be the answer to the smudging. Anyway Ive cut her out with my large rectangle die from Spellbinders and used the same on the sentiment which was generated on my computer, both of these were mounted onto some yellow pearlescent card which has been cut using a scalloped die.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card with three papers from Kay Millers Downloads, this one is called "Its a Spring Thing" the first pattern is a pretty all over flower paper, the second mount is a yellow background with blue and white flowers on, this was stuck on yellow card and placed across the base layer, the third mount is a piece of blue pearlescent card put through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder, but Ive also layed another paper from the same set a pretty blue paper with yellow flowers on, both edges have had two different border punches used on it, under this third mount.
The mounted image was stuck in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right, to finish of Ive created two sprays of roses, one at the top of the left and one at the bottom on the same side, these were stuck onto some silicone glue with a few punched out leaves. The final thing is the two yellow pearls stuck at the top on the right.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
