X-Press It Blending Card
One of my favourite stores to buy digital stamps from is Cuddly Buddly, and they have just launched their own challenge blog. Their very first theme is, fittingly, A Brand New... my daughters have just moved into a new house, so the theme of my card is A Brand New Home.
The base card is the blue patterned paper out of the Hearts and Flowers digital paper pack, printed directly onto card stock with my laser printer. I have coloured the digi's using the copics listed above, then cut around the castle outline and separated the castle wall from the towers so they could sit on separate steps for added dimension. I find that cutting around the image 'scuffs' the edge of the paper leaving white spots, a whiz around the edges with a C-5 copic pen will cover that right up, and it will look like it was the outline of the illustration.
The ribbon across the bottom is haberdashery ribbon, it's the kind used in hats. The original colour was the colour of straw, so I used green copics so it matched the colour scheme.
The sentiment is printed out on card stock using a free blank ticket template I found here, I use this again and again! The font is Old Rubber Stamp which you can download for free here.
The finishing piece was the wax seal, which features a heart embossed in the centre.
I am quite excited about the Cuddly Buddly challenges, I love their images, Toby Tumble is just gorgeous!
