I wasn't sure I would be able to do a Daring card this week - and am still not sure I'll manage the Get Funky card in time for the deadline of - tomorrow - but I'll give it a go. So in order to make sure I had something for today I went for the basic option as this week the dare is
I had never made one before... and they are easy - once you know how. (Google is your friend on this one). So I might try a shaped one over the weekend. In my attempt to use up old papers I... used old papers. These are Piggy Tales Gretel. I do love the clean graphic patterns of these papers - even though I grunged them up! And I sensibly chose the papers and THEN coloured the image.
The stamp is a Sugar Nellie one. I don't often break out my image stamps. Is that because it took me at least 30 minutes to do this much colouring with Prismacolour pencils and I could have done more? I used the Copics trick of adding a grey outline and like that a lot. I added some white gel pen accents. Everything is smothered in PUmice Stone Distress Ink.
Also featuring - printed twill ribbon (from a kit which I haven't used so spent a while trying to tie it so the writing doesn't show!); a Papertrey ink border scallop die; Nesties 8 dies; White Opal liquid pearls; Prima pearl; antique pin.
And on the inside...
A Papertrey ink die and stamp; Imagine That stamp, paper flower.
And that is it.
Oh, and essay done. Just squeezed in under 6,000 words and with 9 Appendices.
