Thanks Julia, for hosting another wonderful challenge! I hadn't used a stylus in ages!
I had a great time with this card! Although I must admit, I remembered why I hadn't used a stylus in awhile... it hurts!! My hand got sore, but it was worth it. I love the effect. I used the stylus to frame the main image from the back, using a ruler to guide it. It really showed up when I sponged the blue distress ink overtop.
For the floral bg, I used Joseph's Coat, then turned the paper over. I traced each flower with a pencil (held it up to the window so I could see the flowers from the back). Then put the paper face down on a craft mat, and traced around the pencil lines first with a small point stylus, then repeated with a larger one. It sure was a lot of work and I'll need to get DH to give me a hand massage!!
I colored the main image with Tombow pens and water, and the goose with blue denim distress ink on a wet wc brush.
All stamps used by High Hopes Stamps.
PS I changed the card a bit, as I wasn't quite happy with it. If you see a yellow layer, this is the newer version. TFL again!!
