Ok. Metal covered now what was I going to do with my card - never started with a bold embellishment before. So this one went a million different directions before I finished it. My images are Alota Rubber Stamps - "Wishing Well" the sentiment "Wishing You Well" and one of the new cute girl stamps "Girlfriend Cheryl". I colored all of them with my Copics. I cut the wishing well and the sentiment out with my Nestibilities Petite Ovals, Then "Cheryl" is cut out with my Fiskars fingertip knife.
Ok.. now those pattern papers... oh my how yummy are they? I was trying so hard to not purchase and new paper. I have so much it won't even fit on the shelves, the stacks are stacking up with nowhere to go. Well I went into Michael's yesterday, was looking for more of the Valentine Border Punches for a few of you Internet Buddies. Sorry Ladies no luck. Anyway... paper pads were on sale. But that is ok, cuz I have them all right? Nope... new one were out!! I got THREE of them! ACHHHHH! These are from a new one I had never seen before but love the maker already. Prima!!!! ooohh these papers are so pretty and it is a huge stack of papers! I picked two patterns and used the green polka dot as the back ground, then the large floral paper just gorgeous oh my... I picked one of the flowers and cut it out with my fiskar's knife, then layered it on the metal edges and dot paper. The ovals are inked on the edges, the sentiment was just too white, so I colored it in with Copic E53 Raw Silk. Cheryl is pop dotted to give her some dimension over the well. To finish it off I gel pen stitched the edges of the card and the ovals.
Very different - but I really like it.
As I said at the top.... tonight I am suppose to go to a crop at a friends. I don't know how much "work" I will get done but I am looking forward to seeing my girlies, we haven't gotten together since before Thanksgiving I think. Do you have fun plans for the weekend? I hope so -
