Puddle Jumper Darla...
It's been a bit gray here today, so not a day for the garden - hence me ending up in the craft room! My OH was at work from 3 today - he'll be home at 9, so I took the opportunity to go hide away up there for a little while and see what I could get up to!
Well I've loved doing this card..... and at last I think I've mastered the embossing technique used by Debby over at Scrapjourney! I've used a Girls Paperie DP, with trusty old Bazzill behind it. The ribbons came from Fizzy Moon, and I've used my oval nesties and dotty embossing folder behind the image. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella. The actual image itself is one of the very talented Lori Boyd's PuddleJumper collection - it's Darla.... and she's gorgeous! I used my promarkers to colour her and I've shaped her (as taught by Debby), with a large headed dry embossing tool and a deep mat. I love this effect... so will be using it many more times I'm sure. She's obviously then put on 3D foam pads to raise her from the oval shape and allow the edges to 'shape around'... (sorry don't know how else to describe it!). Of course, she has a touch of glitz with some glamour dust on her bow, flower and dress!..... Well, it just wouldn't be my card otherwise, would it?
Hugs and hope you're all having a good week......
