Howdy, howdy creative peeps! We’re on day three of release week. Today we’re all showcasing, Fun Pockets, and, I’m back to what my sister refers to as, “pomp and circumstance.” Also known as layers and bows. God bless that girl.
My affair with clean & simple was lovely and all, but I hope y’all know it was never meant to last. Requires a lot of thinking!
Anyway, so my card today is a bit different, I will totally admit it, but this is what I was feeling so I went with it. It sort of evolved into what you see here. I started off by stamping the sun image from the set with my Jenni Bowlin Fountain Pen ink. I inked around the eyes because honestly, they scare me. I then colored the sun with my Prismacolor markers. I used a combination of yellows, red, and orange, but for those that have Copics, I think the YR family would be the way to go.
Since it’s Spring, I decided that I would make my denim, “white,” but with my inking we’ll just say they’re off white, lol. I used my Imagine to print out two patterns from the Hopscotch Pattern cartridge. I died cut the scalloped tag from the cloud paper and I backed it with another tag cut from Vintage Cream. I adhered them and, did a bit of inking with Antique Linen Distress ink.
That’s all I can explain, the rest just kind of came together and did a few things to make what I was doing make more sense to me. I wanted to use the green seam binding that I got from the wonderful Liz. (You can shop her store here: Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.) The only thing I did add for design purposes was the pinking sheared orange cardstock strip because I felt like I needed a bit of balance – you know, the visual triangle stuff.
Oh, and I think my bow looks like a butterfly. :)
