Hello. Welcome. Well, it's been one of those days. Culminating in one of those cards where every little thing seemed just a bit more of a disaster than the previous one. Still, perseverance and plain stubbornness won the day. I hope......
This actually started life yesterday as another go at the fun cut out panel technique. I was going to enter it over at the MFP challenge but then my friend rang and said "want to ride?" Beautiful evening yesterday so this little sweetie got abandoned on the desk. I did take a picture of the first stage this time LOL. I cut a panel using Simon Says Stamp stitched die. Then I stamped High Hopes Boo Crew Border and cut out my panel. I like this technique cos it actually saves some fussy cutting but you still get the layered effect.
OK, so this is the finished card and as you can see it has changed in appearance from the above picture!! I had a little accident with my gold pilot marker whilst colouring the star and had to remove the top panel!! Just go with it I say. I coloured my image with a mix of Promarkers and watercolour pencils. I backed the Boo Crew with Cheery Lynn Spider Web Mesh Border. The flowers were cut using Cheery Lynn BAF#1 and Tea Rose Small dies with a mini brad for the centers. The two flowers on the end are covering up the fact that the black pen I used is not waterfast!!!! Will be remembering that! I have been trying out my handwritten sentiments again!! Need to work on getting the letters the same size! Mounted the whole thing on a piece of MME patterned paper. Went a little crazy around the edge with the black archival ink pad and added an orange card base.
Thanks for your visit. Hope you are having a crafty weekend. Hugz
