Best Friend

Gail and Jo are really challenging us this month at Let's Squash It!   ---  3 EF and a person !!!
Do have blank times in your creative mojo and then at the silliest times ideas pop into your head
well... that's how this card came to be when I was about to head off to bed last night.

  • I stamped the girls dress in light brown ink on an off white card scrap and then ran it through the Cuttlebug with a new EF... then swiped Speckled Egg DO over the raised sections and water coloured the hem, sash and neck with Broken China DI, and fussy cut it out
  • Stamped the whole girl image on white card and watercoloured it with DI and added detail with coloured pencils, and fussy cut it out and attached the dress
  • Being a tall image I decided to make a slim line card... 
  • Found an embossing folder with a repeat pattern so I could emboss a long piece of white card.. then sponged Speckled Egg DO along the edge
  • Embossed a strip of matching blue card with the sentiment strip and highlighted the raised with Broken China DI.
  • Assembled the elements using foam tape on the girl image on a matching blue card

Thanks for visiting  ---  have a Wonderful Creative weekend - cheers
