I have seen so many cute little gift cards made with Nestibilites and decided this was a good time to try one - Cut the purple card stock with the largest scallop, then a red with one step down, then the image with one step down from that! Love how it came together. I doodled the red card stock with white gel pen, and then doodled the edge of the image with the Copic multi-liner.
My image is the new "Staying Cool" Bugs, wonder what they are gossiping about? ahem chatting about. I colored with my Copics, I have been really trying hard to learn how to blend them together with out any streaks or lines - you can tell that with my umbrella - The sky and the ground is done with chalks. Softer - then the image pops with the Copics.
For the wings of my little bugs I of course used stickles, and then so the umbrella would look like one of the shiny vinyl plastic umbrellas I covered it in dimensional glaze. Love that stuff - stays so 3-d.
I hope you will check out the challenge over at the PCP Alota Group - Helene has some fabulous prizes up for grabs, and the shaped cards are just amazing - alot more shape and thought than my little scallops! LOL
Hubby is off today - mow, mow, mow is the plan for the day - sound fun? yuck - but part of the life in the country.
