 The image has been printed onto Hessian textured card then coloured with a mix of old and new colour Promarkers.The patterened paper is K & Co and the coloured card is all from the So Mod Core’dinations pack.The Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder has been used on the strip across the bottom which has also been sanded.I made the greeting on Word Art and printed this onto some more Hessian textured card.The flower behind that is cut from the center of Flower Wedding#2 Sizzix Bigz die.I knotted some gold organza ribbon and added some acrylic dew drops using Glossy Accents.

How it looks when standing:

There was a twist this week to decoupage your image or to make your card 3-D in some way.

I don’t know why but I’d got it into my head it was layers! So I merrily cut part of the front off a card and replaced it with acetate.The purpose being that the Sketchie would be carried through to the inside.

As this card is intended for DD1 who is going to be 16 shortly I used a Manga Girl stamp as this is one of her interests.I hope she likes it – I’ve even used her fav colours.The purple tones are all new Promarker colours ; Plum,Purple and Orchid.I’ve also highlighted areas using a white gel pen.

The hair,dress,boots and arms have been layered using silicone glue.The pieces were shaped and the edges were stuck down flatter.Not so much your conventional decoupage just a 3-D effect.                                                                   

I pierced the papers  with an EK Success Zig Zag rotary tool and added some faux stitching .Edges have been distressed too.I have attached a poem to the other side of the mounted purple spotty paper .This stops the glue showing inside.The lady who created it asks that her verses are for personal use only so I don’t want to show it in case I’m in breach of something.

The swirls are from the Cuttlebug Vintage 2×2 dies.I adhered them to the card only to avoid seeing the glue from the other side.I used two paper flowers,a ribbon brad and some ribbon from my stash.The greeting was generated on the computer.The papers are Making Memories.
