Patch gets a Special Delivery Vera Bradley bag and Chihuahua girl friend included.
This is for Jen's Vera Bradley inspiration challenge.
Okay, so this one would never make it into the limited supply challenge, and I clearly have way toooo much time on my hands. This is truly making the most of the time convalescing with a bung toe. And I am passionate about collage too.
I have grown to appreciate how much work Vera Bradley puts into her designing! This is NOT a DP, I built this paper background myself. With over 20 stamps.
When I discovered the A muse site and selected all these stamps, I dreamed of one day making cute little scenes with them, I've finally gotten around to it. My daughter has put in an order for one she can play with, made so that she can move all the pieces around, like a dolls house.
There are so many stamps in this collage, I will list the brands and then if you are interested in a particular one, I would love to hear from you and I can help with your specific query. Most of the stamps in the picture itself are a muse.
I did a lot of paper piecing. I donít know how I have survived with out a stampamajig (SU) until now! This is the first time I have really used it properly and it will now be a permanent fixture on my desk!
The lounge is paper piecing with White cardstock through cuttlebug folder, stamped and cut out. I used real red for the lounge and copics on the window. I actually inked up the cuttlebug folder itself with the real red ink. There was a tutorial on this technique a little while ago, but I can't find it, anyone?
I did a far amount of detailing with a fine black 0.1 copic marker. It's my absolute favourite marker as it does not run when used with copic markers (or SU).
I've decided I'm going to frame this one!

Fantastic job! I love your original background paper--it's beautiful! I hope you have extra left over to use for other creations! I did something similar with mine. I made my own background paper with the Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder, and colored the embossed images with my Copics. After an hour of coloring that alone, I was wondering what I got myself into! I'll have to age that card a bit before I send it out to someone! LOL! Again, your card is beautiful! I wish my photography skills were as good as yours!

There are thousands of beautiful cards on SCS, but this just made me sit for a minute in a state of utter amazement. You put so much work into it, and it's just so beautiful and creative. I admire your work. Eileen
