Okay then, 3 days of rain has me crafting up a storm (Ha Ha! I made a funny). There's a number of challenges I don't want to slip by and it's rare I'm able to play wherever I want, so this is my second post of the day. Yea, ME! Here's a circular shaped card I've made using my Spellbinders Grand Circles and Scalloped Circles. I chose the shape for the Outlawz Monday Greetings Absolutely No Corners Challenge (which ends TODAY!). The adorable image is Faery Ink's Maggie Flower which I chose to enter the Faery Ink April Flower Power FB Challenge. I made it a birthday card to enter the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Happy Birthday Challenge and the Aud Sentiments Sixth Birthday Challenge (congrats to these two fine companies).
I did something a little different with Maggie Flower. Faery Ink Stamps come in a number of digital formats and for this one, I used the totally transparent png format to print my images directly over digital paper, from AMBillustrations, so I could print multiples for fussy cutting, paper piecing and layering. I changed the size several times in order to stagger the petals and also printed her on white, so I could color the leaves and her face with Copic markers. I can't believe that the smallest layer was the exact size of the epoxy ladybug sticker I used over the printed image. WooHoo!
Here's the dimensional shot. I'm actually not quite sure how many times I printed her to get the full effect, but there was a whole lot of fussy cutting going on. Gotta say I had a ball with this and really, really REALLY love how it turned out. Hope you do too.
