I'm back with another card, this one has taken me a few days, my cousin kindly gave me a borrow of her mini sewing machine, I was going to buy one but she offered me hers to see how I liked it and I am loving it! I tried a little sewing around the edges of the square background card to practice and I really like the effect it gave. You can't really see it in these pics though.
I am going to be entering this card into the Simply Magnolia Challenge, this week it's a sketch, and a blooming good one, so here's my card . . .
My lighting is pretty pants, I have a daylight that I use for taking pics but its always a little reflective! I am using my latest purchase - Gift from Heaven Tilda, I'm in lurve! She is such a sweetie! I have coloured her using TH distress inks. I also put some white Frantage embossing powder around her, I added a little too much this time so I'll be more cautious next time.
My card blanks are from Craftwork Cards, I have seen loads of these shaped cards, but I know that many of them are created by the big go create dies, sadly I don't have a die cutting machine big enough for those dies so I had to improvise in order to get my papers the same shape and size. So, I drew around the card blank on the back of my design papers and carefully cut it out and then stuck it to the card blank, it turned out great, well I think so!
