You Are Such a Joy!
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
I saw this video tutorial on the Simon Says Stamp blog and loved the look, so I just had to try it for myself. I didn't color an image on mine, but I did use UTEE over my sentiment, then created a frame around the edge of the die cut with stamps and distressed it with Distress Ink. Most of it got covered up by the time I was finished with the card, but it still looks pretty. And, I recently won a challenge at Simon Says Stamp and used my gift voucher to buy some MFT rolled flower dies, which I used to make the felt flowers on this card. OMGosh--Awesome!
My card design came from the Viva la Verve August 2012 Week 3 sketch, but I added a few elements to give it a little bit of a shabby vintage look. The vintage image is a freebie from Magic Moonlight Studio. The polka dot strip across the top is actually Washi tape, which I adhered to kraft cs, then sewed to the card. This is my first time to use Washi tape. I've wondered what the big deal was, and now I know. I can't wait to get some other designs!
And, that's it for this card. I'll be back in the morning with my Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge card. Until then, thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
