Hmmm… this is one of those cards that went from simple to busy to extremely fussy. I threw everything but the kitchen sink at it. Oops; I did have to wet some paper towels to clean the embossing folder so the sink was involved after all. ;)
This card is for another Dare To Get Dirty challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. So many great challenges and I want to participate in all of them but there is only so much time. Sigh. And that thing called a j-o-b is interfering. You can find out about the challenges HERE.
As I implied there is a lot going on with this card, here are the highlights:
- Inked the Gears Embossing Folder (Sizzix) with Berrylicious Premium Ink (MFT) and embossed a piece of white cardstock. It was then matted on Candy Bar Cardstock (Bazzill) and the edges stitched with my sewing machine.
- I stamped Nutmeg (There She Goes) on Choice Snow White Cardstock (Taylored Expressions) and colored with Copic markers before trimming. I added Diamond Stickles (Ranger) to the heart on her check and I dotted it randomly on her hair.
- I cut a panel out of light blue cardstock using a Rounded Tag Framelit (Sizzix) and stamped the sentiment in black ink.
- I used designer papers from the All About a Boy Paper Pad (Echo Park), a bit of polka dot ribbon (May Arts) and some baker’s twine (The Twinery) for embellishment. There is also a wood button from my stash.
Shockingly, I did not use any rhinestones which I’m tempted to add. Heh heh heh.
What do you think? Like the green hair and the bright colors?
