I wanted to casethis card by Marleygo for some time. I immediately thought of wonderful friends that I'd like to send this to. The image is of a boy and girl and I wanted two girls. I stamped it first then scanned it, traced the girls head digitally and changed the image. The card started out as todays Mix22 challenge but that just wasn't going to happen with the old paints I had. So instead I dabbed some on the craft mat and sprayed with water. That was way too bold so out came the gesso. Then it was stamped with Tim Holtz bitty grunge stamps and I did use a piece of drywall tape. I could not find the sentiment stamp so I ran the curled paper through the printer taping down the corners and computer generated that wonderful sentiment as I crossed my fingers not to jam. Thanks for looking.

My goodness, what a process you went through to create this. Your specie friend will surely cherish it. I am too stuck in a rut to branch out into all these techniques you used for this. And the computer stuff is definitely out. But...i do love what you made. VERY Nice!!

Wow - love the insight into your creative process here. Beautifully made and I had to laugh at your finger crossing (I do it all the time - tee hee). What a great card (love that sentiment) and great case of sweet Lesley.

Wow, what a lot of work, but what great results!! I would not know how to get that image the way you did, but looks fantastic - Sounds like you sure know a lot of technique possibilities too. Love the sentiment !!!
