I stamped the scene and colored with copics and the glitter pens by copic. Then covered it all with embossing powder. I used watercolor crayons to color the background. It didn't look vivid enough for me, so I did direct to paper inking with my turquoise ink pad. Then wiped off the embossed images and here you go:
The orange tissue paper has been in my stash for over a year. Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep a single sheet of orange tissue paper totally flat in a mess like mine for an entire year? I seriously love that paper though. So I punched some circles from it for the inside then stitched them on. *to punch from tissue paper you set it on some regular thin cardstock and then punch through both layers. Works like a charm and doesn't tear the tissue.*
Ok this next card is a shameless CASE. I like to browse the Splictoaststampers galleries in the morning while my kids eat breakfast. I saw THIS card by Gretchen Belknap and knew I'd make the same card today. I usually don't make a whole exact case like this but seriously! I HAD to do it. So if you love this, go tell Gretchen because it's her idea. And also she has better kraft cardstock than me! Where does she get that? DRATS. Oh she has a blog HERE. No shortage of cute in her world.
