It's exam time of year here in the UK and everywhere students will be leaving after completing their courses. So at Cardz4Galz our latest challenge we are giving you the opportunity to make some girly cards for a -
I had a look in my stash and didn't really have anything that fit the bill, especially for a girl. So I had a bit of a head scratch and came up with this.
I took my Up Town Girls Victoria and Juliette stamp from Stamping Bella and added a cap or two and some certificates!
Here's how I did it.
First I fished out my MISTI and attached the stamp where I needed it, then inked it carefully with Memento Tuxedo Black, trying not to ink the tops of the heads and around the hands. A further wipe with a wet wipe removed any stray ink from those areas. After stamping I drew in the caps and the rolled certificates or diplomas, adding a few ribbons as well.
Colouring the image with Copics using the pinky blue of the succulents in the picture at Curtain Call, I then carefully cut them out and put them to one side.
On a panel of white card I stencilled the sky through a stencil made from a MFT die with Tumbled Glass DI and added a black die cut skyline to match the sketch at Sunday Stamps.
The greeting , a mixture of HLS Simply said and another whose packet is long gone, was stamped in black. The finished panel was glued flat and so were the fussy cut girls.
