Trying To Catch Up!

Saturday, 18 August 2012

Good evening!

I thought it's about time I tried to catch up blogging the cards that I've made but haven't uploaded yet.  I usually like to have 1 or 2 extra's but my pile is starting to grow!

I made this card for my cousin for when she graduated from Queen's University in Belfast - it was a proud day for all involved!

Here's the card:

The image is Gradgirl2012 by Saturated Canary which I coloured with the following Copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Dress & Socks; B45,95,41. Robe, Mortar board & Shoes; B39,37,34. Scroll; YG97,95,93. Hair; E49,39,35,33.  Lips; R37,29. Plus some black prisma pencil.
I decided to make the image into a bookmark, saying as the card was for a smarty pants - I mean an intellectual!  So I attached the computer generated sentiment onto the bookmark on a Stampin' Up! tab punch.  The other sentiment is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.  I threaded the ribbon through a fancy paper-clip before I added it to the bookmark and then I attached the whole lot to the card with just the paper-clip so as it can be removed for use.

The papers are Basic Grey, Out Of Print and I also made a scroll out of the paper and tied some ribbon around it too.  A few swarovski's finished it off.

The inside was done to match the front.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
