It's the last Monday in July (I can't believe it, can you?) and time for another BBTB BLOG HOP! If you happened upon this post by chance you may wish to start at BBTB, otherwise you probably arrived here from my talented DT sister Krista's Blog. This week Regina asked us to use the sort of graphic man and woman from Going Places. I must confess that at first I groaned because these figures look to me like those on a unisex public bathroom (I guess they aren't holding hands there, God forbid, but you know what I mean). Then all of a sudden this idea came to me and everything changed. Maybe Michael was reaching down to inspire me, but this may be my all-time favorite card EVER. It took me HOURS to get everything welded and to cut the individual couples in all the colors of the rainbow but I'm SO HAPPY with how it came out. Thank you dear Leah for letting me borrow this cart yet AGAIN (guess it's time to invest) because all of the cuts but the clouds (from Hello Kitty Greetings) were from Going Places. Oops, I lied, I did use a square and tiny heart from Plantin Schoolbook but that doesn't really count, does it?
I used quite a bit of popping to enhance the floating nature of the background cuts and the continents and ocean on the world. The sky and clouds were cut from Bazzil card stock with pre- embossed dots and the ocean was cuttled with the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and the continents with the tiny dots from the butterfly die/emboss set and the sun was embossed with Swiss Dots.
Now on to my amazingly creative DT sister Enfys' BLOG. 893 followers wouldn't lie, so you are in for a real treat! But before you go, please leave a comment to be included in the random drawing for my blog candy. The winner will be announced Sunday morning, Aug 2. Happy hopping and thank you so much for stopping by! xxD
