To make this card, I stamped the Rubbernecker image of "Ethel w/Chicken" with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers. I then cut the image panel with a Nestabilities circle die using the out-of-box technique. I then added some details to the image by paper piercing, putting Polar White Flower Soft on Ethel's slippers, and adding a coat of Judi*kins Diamond glaze on the poultry and Ethel's glasses. I framed the image with a Nestabilities scalloped circle die cut from brown cardstock.
Patterned paper from Crate Paper was paper pierced and dry embossed with a Sizzix folder, and brown cardstock frames the panel. A strip of patterned paper (unknown source...it was a scrap) was placed across the bigger panel. The sentiment is also from Rubbernecker and is called "Diet" (SKU:564-03). It was stamped using Versafine Onxy Black onto a scrap of yellow cardstock. I added some Baker's Twine to the top of the sentiment panel.

I can't believe this card hasn't received some lovin'. It is amazing. Your coloring is fabulous, your layout inspired--especially with Ethel and the out-of-box technique (I must find out how to do that), and the way you echoed your circles in both the background designer paper, and the framing of your image. Of course, the humor is the frosting on the cake (diet humor intended).
