Hello and good morning everyone ---
As you will have already gathered my term with Tiddly Inks has come to an end, so I'm back with the fab and talented Design Team girls at Sweet Stampin' - thanks ever so much Abi for releasing me :)
Well our theme this week is 'Let's Get Musical' (Musical instruments, notes, papers etc) so I used one of the cute digital images from Sugar Nellie and added some music patterned paper. Perfect :)
Here's What I Did
I created my own 5" x 7" blank tent fold card from white A3 cardstock.
Next I printed my image directly onto my colouring card and die cut it into a rectangle, then coloured it with Copic pens. Using a sheet of LOTV music patterned paper I die cut it into a rectangle using the same stitched die as before, this was to ensure I cut it to the correct size and had the stitched effect on it. The patterned paper was cut again using a the word pop die (speech bubble) and inked around the edges, this was added to the dog image panel. To add a little interest I die cut a 'Hello' sentiment from Gold mirra card and glued it in place on top of the music paper. The whole panel was then matted onto brown card and attached to my card base using foam pads.
To finish off I drew a few more musical notes and added glossy accents to them, glued on gold mirra card circles and used a white pen on the eyes of the dog for highlights.
