Checking FB


Hi fellow crafters and followers.  Hope you are all well today?

Well today's post is a digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Checking FB.  To be honest she resembles me at this very moment.  I am sitting in my Jimmy Jammies preparing this post and checking out facebook etc.  Mind you it is 9.30pm so I think it will be okay.

Madam here was coloured in using copics.  I always colour first and then make my card up.   Gives me a good idea on colour combos then, all I have to decide is layout.
 
 I began with an 8x8 plain white card, matted some brown pearlescent card on and then embossed some plain white card using an A4 m bossibilities folder.  Before putting it in the embossing folder I inked up the folder with spiced marmalade distress ink and then ran it through my grand caliber.

I die cut my image out with a square die cut from XCut but prior to that I cut up to her bottom and just below her knee.  I then die cut her by putting the die cut below the bit I have cut.  That was how I achieved her sitting on the end of the square - I do hope I have explained that okay.  I matted her onto some brown pearlescent card die cut using a spellbinders grande scalloped square.  Another piece of brown pearlescent card and finishing off with two sentiments using Xcut labels.   Finally some card candi as an accent.

Hope you enjoyed taking a peek at her.  Thanks for stopping by I do appreciate it.  Take care.

  9. Terrific card. I think it could be me as well except that I'm not usually shopping, I'm usually blogging and visiting others sites as it is my very favorite thing to do (especially in my jammies). You did a lovely job of coloring this image. Thanks so much for joining us this week at ABC Challenges.
