Two Scoops Of Funky Please!!!

Posted by manicstamper on January 20, 2008

What a busy day!!!
I have spent most of the day making up samples for the shop to promote products we have had in and also doing a project with the BIA which took far longer than I expected but turned out better than I thought it would.
Today I am sharing a very funky card made with the new Dovecraft papers Retro Floral. I have to be honest and say that I am not sure that these are quite my thing. I found them a little dull to begin with but once I had done a few dots and things with my trusty white gel pen I liked them a whole lot more. The chipboard embellishments have also been gel penned.
I am going to use this card as my tribute to Lynne who has just left the DCM design team because without copying one of her cards directly which I would never do, I can’t seem to imitate her style very successfully cos she is so flippiting good.
The tapered tag shaped card has been done using a combination of BG Two Scoops papers and stamps. I am so in love with these papers it’s ridiculous and I have only cut and used these because Deb gave them to me to do the samples. If I had paid for it then it would have been squirrelled away and only used for drooling over and stroking….lol!!!
The heart is a Sizzlet die cut and the stitching is pretend stitching done with a piercing tool and a pen.
Well I have to dash off and see if I have time to do a set of five ATC’s for a swap which should really be arriving at the distributors house by tomorrow. I got notice of the due date a little late for me to complete them on time due to workload so my apologies to everyone in the group.
Catch you all later
