OSAAT #182 - Anything Goes
Everyone's favourite theme - Anything Goes. Come and join us at One Stitch at a Time and check out the DT cards too. This time it was Joseephine's turn to choose an image and she chose 'Clowning Around' by BBKakes at Stitchybear Digi Outlet.
The card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen and the red card is by Papermill. I matted a sheet of Costco's striped paper on to red card as the background. The image was coloured with Promarkers and a Sakura red glitter pen (for the ruffle down the front of the dress and the heart on the hat, though you can't really see it very well). I cut it into a rectangle and used a vanilla Promarker round the edge - I'd also lined the image with the same colour. It was a perfect size to fit the centre of my card, hmm, good luck or good management? lol I made three red organza bows to mirror the bows on the dress. Mine were not identical bows but by the time I'd battled with my Pinflair glue to position them I'd almost given up the will to live. The ribbon was from Joanna Sheen. Red pearl stars and gold foil stars, from Create and Craft, were dotted strategically around and then I added a computer generated sentiment. That was matted on to a Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangle die cut in red card. I started off by enjoying making this card but by the time I'd finished I was ready to bin it! It looks reasonably OK now but it's not one of my favourites, however, I do love the image.
