Card Size A2 (4.25 x 5.5)
Measurements: I’m measuring the black borders – image circle – 2 1/8”, narrow panel – 1 ¼” x 4”, 3 ¼ x 4 ¼”, those are Stampin Up oval punches
For it being my own layout I had so much trouble with this card…I guess some days are just like that! I just didn’t want to do another flower.
-The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps using the Gamsol technique but substituting Gamsol with baby oil. Find the tutorial in the resources section of SCS.
-The image is cut out and attached to the circle panel.
-All panels but the black and thanks have ink distressing.
-The card base was stamped with the Crackle backgrounder using the finger walking technique; this is inking up the rubber face up on your stamping surface, lay the cardstock on the rubber and walk your fingers across. This will give only a partial covering on the cardstock.
-To give the thanks panel a little faux layer look; I used a black marker around the edge working from the back and slanting the marker just a bit towards the front of the panel.
-That’s two extra punched ovals as a black border.
