Fight Like A Girl!
I chose to use the Sunday Best Image, since it seems to represent femininity. It fit the whole lace and ribbon theme as well.
Don't forget to join the StarStampz challenge for your chance to win some really cute digital images like the one you see here.
To begin I printed my image set to 3 in. Using the larges of the Flower Pleated Lace Nested Dies, I die cut out my images so that it was centered.
Below are the colors I used to color in my image.
Skin: E000, E11, E13, E04, E93 Hair: E41, E33, E23, E27 Eyes: B01, B02, B04 Sky: B000
Grass: YG61 Flower, Dress, Basket: R01, R30, R32, R43, YG03, E27, E29 Shoes: C5, R43
I die cut the Awareness Ribbon from the Heart Cotton Candy cardstock. I then traced the ribbon die onto the back of the black glitter cardstock to create a backing for the die cut. I used Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic glue to adhere the die cut to the backing.
To add some interest to the card and help break up the background some, I used pink polka dot and pink/white twine to wrap around the floral print cardstock. I used 1/8" double sided tape to adhere down the ribbon and then to attached two pieces oftwine to a swatch of double sided tape. I made sure to cross then over the fron t of the card.
Using double sided tape, I adhered the cardstock down to my card base.
Time to place the image on the card using 1/4" double sided tape. Make sure to keep it centered.
I tied a small bow if the pink twine onto the awareness ribbon die cut. Then I used 1/4" double sided tape to adhere it down on the lower right corner of the image.
Finally I hand wrote "Strength" onto a 1/4" strip of white cardstock with a diagonal cut and adhered it down so that it is under and over the ribbon. This is what the final card will look like.
