DETAILS FOR MY CARD: This card was so fun to make. I chose the Cowgirl Marci, used Creative Imaginations Debbie Mum paper for my background by cutting out the images from the paper and glueing them on to the ground that I made by tearing cardstock. How fun is that! Layered cardstock and tied a bow out of twine...


Techniques used: Texturized image, paper tearing, paper piecing from printed paper.


I texturized the skirt by adding Copic Blending Solution to a piece of denim then dabbing the skirt after it was colored. Because the Blending solution is the solvent for the Copic ink, it faded the images in places where the nap of the fabric was thicker. Making a great denim look on the skirt! How fun! Whew Hew - give it a try.


YESTERDAY'S POST ALSO HAS SOME GREAT NEW IMAGES...... CHECK IT OUT!
