This is my first post as an Incy Wincy Design Team Member. I am excited and nervous at the same time. So I said to myself, take a deep breath, enjoy and create.
I put the Cricut Explore to the test with the Bugaboo Stamps digital image. After downloading it to the Cricut Design Space and a test run using a black Cricut marker, I tried drawing the image on black cardstock using a white Gelly Roll pen. I sized the image to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to fit a card front. I colored the print out with color pencils. I lightly colored the background with white color pencil and slightly rub it off with a paper towel. I applied clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and used my stash of gel and metallic pens. I fuzzy cut the oval shape off the original lay-out. I inked the edges of this piece with white ink pad.
For the background, I dried embossed another black cardstock using a We R Memory Keepers Quilted Next Level Embossing Folder. I adhered the oval flower piece on this.
For the sentiment, I cropped a part of the Oddball Art sentiment digital image and also downloaded it to the Cricut Design Space. Using the same technique, I wrote the sentiment on black cardstock using a white Gelly Roll pen. If I can do this over again, I will resize the sentiment smaller so I can trim it to a one line sentiment strip. After adding details to the sentiments, I adhered this to the bottom of the panel. I stapled the edges to add a little bit detail. I adhered this panel to a white note card. To finish off the card, I applied random dots of Glossy Accents, sort of like an enamel dot.
I chose to create a sympathy card. I tend to have none at hand when I need a card with this theme. Now, I have one handy. I also plan to re-create this card using a white background with a black outline.
Thanks for viewing my blog. Hope you join us in the Incy Wincy Alter Something Challenge. Have a brilliant day!
