This is another card I have made using one of the Retro Women Rubber sheet set. I just like these images.Very feminine...here I have used Basic Grey -Stella Ruby paper pad as part of the background. I like the stripey look .Now coming to the circle and scalloped edge, Im very into scalloped since its in...Crafting is a bit like fashion , isn't ?!!I dont have any scalloped punch but I had to get that scalloped look with this one as I had the image in my head. So I use my compas again to draw a circle, cut it out and stamped my image on it with black Whispers ink pad. I have coloured in partly with water colour red colouring pencil and used my water brush to go over it. Then I opened my compass a little bit wider and draw anoter circle ono Red Bazzil card and cut around it with Scalloped edge scissors. From my experience, the only thing you need to worry about is to make sure you are cutting on the line all the time so you dont get a crooked circle! And also, try to move your paper as you go along.Mount the image on the red card, add two eyelets on both sides and thread through you ribbon, in such a way ribbon will be hooked onto itself, then I have made sure ribbons are long enough to be attached at the back of the stripey paper.The other end, I have cut them just to add a bit of zing to it.
Needless to say , I had to use my 'adorable' word stamp from Hero Arts, mounted onto red bazzil card and cut with scalloped scissors. I thought if I put it in the middle it will look kind of bare on both sides..So I opted to put the word on the left, and to counter balance it with some basic grey paper, by cutting a piece of paper, then again into squares, add some black ribbon in the middle, I have glued the back of the squares and attached the ribbon at the back. And Finished off with some bling: Red studs!
Easy and I normally sketched my cards before I do them, but with this one , I had an image in my head and it just came together by itself.So have a play with this sketch if you like it, its pretty easy!
