Morning everyone, hope you are all ok. A couple of days ago my package of new rubber arrived from LOTV and I couldn't wait to play so I had a totally inky session and made this simple looking card, but there was a decent bit of work involved to achieve the look
First job was to shape the edge of the card, which I did with a Spellbinders edging die, but the cardstock is 300gsm so it took four rolls through the machine to get the cut. Then I made masks for the clouds using Joy Craft cloud dies and Post-it Notes (the new ones that are all over sticky). I wanted to make a stencil for the grass rather than using my Martha Stewart border punch so I ordered a DieNamics Grass die and cut using acetate so I could use the negative shape. I inked the grass first with a sponge and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks. Then I sponged the sky, with the cloud masks in place obviously, with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Shaded Lilac.
I stamped Annabel Texting, painted her with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and then fussy cut (she is lucky to still have two pigtails), placed her on the card, and then stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment.
Start to finish was a couple of hours, but I am pleased with the end result!
