For my card I’ve used Mail Call from the Domestic section of the Animals category at Digi Doodle Shop .**Note. The envelope on the image in the store is has NO wording.The sentiment has been added to the envelope using Word as I didn’t have a stamp to fit.** I’ve been experimenting with my pencils again.This time I was trying to achieve a furry effect.It sounds a little daft but I filled in the white area with a white pencil but it does soften and blend the edges a little.Of course being as I’d decided to use black and grey shades my light grey one was AWOL.I have NO idea where it has gone!I think I really could’ve done with it but I’m still quite pleased altho’ I obviously need more practice!!I’ve also only used various kraft card rather than patterned papers.I dry embossed the plain piece and picked it out using Distress Ink.It doesn’t show too well in the pic but the stars are embossed too.All edges have been ‘ruffed’ up (sorry couldn’t resist!) with a paper distresser and some office type embellies complete the card.Supplies : Image : Mail Call from Digi Doodle Shop Sentiment : Created and added in Word Mediums : Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils,Black Soot Distress Ink Cardstock : Papermania 12 x 12 Kraft Basics Tools : X-cut guillotine,Tim Holtz Paper Distresser,Cuttlebug Script Embossing Folder,X-cut Dielicious Star Nesting Dies,Big Shot,Mini stapler Embellishments : Mini staples,Red paperclip,Red string all from my stash
