Just Chillin'

Hi Bloggers,

Today I have a card to share using the gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp Chillax.

I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured using promarkers. I cut the image out using the 'out of the box' technique and a circle nestability die. You can see that her foot is outside of the circle. I cut a mat out of marine blue card using a scallop nestie.

I coloured some Woodware Paper Flowers by splatting Faded Jeans Distress Stain in the centre and added some Faded Jeans Distress Ink around the edges. I added a brown American Crafts brad in the centre. I inked some white roses from my stash with the Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The leaves were cut using one of the Spellbinders Foliage dies.

I assembled the front of the card as shown using papers from Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD. Before mounting it on my 8" x 8" Craftwork Cards blank, I ran some Woodware Hi-Tack Tape along the width of the design and ruffled some brown gingham ribbon along it. I did two lines of it. I added some Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue along the edges of the ruffles to secure them. I tied a messy bow two lengths of the ribbon and added it to the centre of the ruffled ribbon securing it with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
