Penny Johnson - Looking Chic - Another sneak peek!
She has been stamped out three times. Twice on my white card stock. I cut one out with my Mega Nesties - the second I cut out her hand with her pocket book, and her hand with the leash. Yes that was a tiny little cut out! The third time I stamped her out on the DCWV Cafe Mediterranean pattern paper. This paper has some really gorgeous glossy areas! I then cut out her coat and attached it to the main image, then I on top of that I attached her hands and pocket book.
Then I went to work on the card. My base is a Coredinations card stock, in a really pretty teal blue. I then layered a piece of the DCWV Cafe Mediterranean pattern paper, with two bands of card stock, one lime green and one the base teal blue. I sewed everything down. A mat for the image was cut out of a "coat matching" pattern paper with the Mega Nesties - and I inked the edges of everything. For some fun vines and flowers I cut out two Leaf Flourishes from Bosskut - really pretty die cut. For the flowers I used my mini EK Success retro flower punch with my white card stock, and then mini teal brads for the centers.
My sentiment is from Stampavie as well... Rachelle Anne Miller sentiments, I matted it with a Stampin Up label punch in green. I just love how this one came out. I think it is mainly cuz I just am in love with this image.. LOL She just looks so fun! and well she is "Looking chic"!!
So are you with me? I wanna go out and find an outfit just like hers.. coat, hat, scarf and matching boots! LOL
Hope you have a wonderful Monday.. Hubby is off today, no telling what we will end up working on... we have a long list of chores we should get busy on around here - but if the weather doesn't cooperate, we may just end up running errands and then coming home and watching it rain.
