CCC #130

Happy Tuesday and time for a new Cue Card at CASology!

This week our our cue word is:




Had some fun with this one creating a card for that friend who lives far away from me now. To create my sky behind my image I first die cut the coordinating die for the little girl from a Post-it Note and adhered it where I wanted her to go on my card base.  Then I sponged Tumbled Glass in a circle motion on and around the die cut. Then I removed the die cut and stamped the image in the space and coloured. Worked out great but I had a backup plan if it didn't, like we need those right (I do)...if my colouring didn't work out I could always stamp and die cut another image to put it over top.

Well, now why haven't I 'connected' the dots with using post-it-notes to ink around a die? I'm so d-uh at times! Yeesh! Oh well, not only your gorgeous card to bring a smile to my face - such a sweet little girl - but I'm coming away with a new technique! Win-win!!
