Flip Flip Flip

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog they have a new challenge.  CASE the DT.  What fun.  So we are CASEing one of Chaitali's cards.  I decided to make a tag.  I wanted to use the lovely Unity Dream of Being.  She was facing the wrong way and I didn't want to mess around mirroring her so I decided to flip Chaitali's design. 

So I made a tag.  The girl holding the coffee cup (Unity Stamps Dream of Being) is in place of Chaitali's cup.  The sentiment is also from Unity but it originally read 'sometimes talking with friends is the only therapy you need'  

Chaitali's card to CASE

I cut my tag and used Stamplorations Swirly Blooms stencil and black archival ink.  I used Sizzix journal card dies to cut a layer of black card and then a piece that I had covered with polka dot washi tape.  I coloured the image with sharpies and watercolours.  I placed the stamped, fussy cut girl on the polka dot panel and did a bit of masking to get the bits of the sentiment I wanted.   I wrote the word coffee in and cut using Sizzix circle die.  Then I backed it with a sizzix die cut flower in black.  Doesn't show so well.  You can just see the end of the petals peeking out.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
