Sharing a card I made for a sweet little girl who loves to read! I used the new School Girl digital stamp from Tiddly Inks. I think she is so sweet! (and she is only $1.00!!) I also tried something new. Marie Browning over at the Tombow Blog is challenging us to create a background out of pages from a book. It was very hard to rip a page from a book, since I too am a book lover. I dug out an old book that my kids have out grown and used a couple pages from it. Here's my card:
Tuesday Morning Sketches. For the background, I used two pages from a small children's book, I crumpled them, then smoothed them out slightly and brushed them with some SU Carmel ink. I then adhere them to my panel with Tombow Aqua glue. I left the paper a little bit crumpled. My image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Distressed markers. I pierced the paper than did the stitching by hand. Used MFT Fishtail Banner die to cut the banners. I really like how the background turned out. Will be using this technique again!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a very happy Labor Day weekend! God bless!!
