Firstly, I coloured the image I'm going to show you below - and I had nearly got all the pieces together for the card when - I had forgotten to ink the edges. See you would say, just leave it alone, but oh no, not me! And of course I made a right mess of things, over did the inking it looked like a two year old had been at. So the whole thing ended up in the trash.
Secondly, the finished product below, as is, I am pleased with; well, sort of. But that's after having to reprint the sentiments twice because I messed up the die cut. Then, as I was sticking the pieces together, my ATG ran out of tape - ahhhh!! Obviously I have spare, but it's like as if everything was just to drive be bonkers!
Anyway. enough of my ravings!
I would like to share with you this lovely Emma Canning image called Cheer Leader. Emma is an up and coming digi artist and is exclusive to Polka Doodles. She has lots of wonderful images and they can be found here for purchase and instant download.
Polka Doodles is branching out into the digi world and more and more items are being added regularly. Why not go along and take a look as to what is on offer, you won't regret it.
I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir markers, and she is popped up on the layers, which are Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8. I inked all the edges of all the layers and I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out, so no eye poking today :-)
I added a little glitter to her pom poms and the sentiment is by me just typing it up in Word.
My lilac papers are from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD - there are some fabulous colours and designs of papers and lots of images, for all the seasons.
I used a similar design on the inside of my card and once again typed up the sentiment.
I'm OK with the final result, not one of my better days. I think I lost my direction with the card after all the different things that went wrong, even my colouring didn't really go to plan on this second attempt. Well, hey, we take the good with the bad, right!
