Cre8tive Hands on a sheet of white cardstock and trimmed them out last week and I decided to use this little dog for his card.
I started with a large envelope and I created a beige card to fit inside. I found a piece of decorative scrapbook paper that coordinated and added a brown punched border (SU) on the right hand side. I pierced each scallop with a push pin and then scored a line next to them. I glued this to the back of my decorative paper. I watercoloured my image and sponged the edge with blue to coordinate. I added dots with a brown marker to highlight the edges. To add texture I tied a length of orange fiber around my decorative paper layer and tied a knot on the right. Wanting to add a bit more interest I dug through my stash of round punchies and found several that coordinated and glued them to the back of my coloured image. I glued this large focal element to my card front over the fiber before gluing the whole thing to the front of my beige card. I added some glitter glue in a coordinating colour to the circles' edges and one dot in the middle of the two brown ones. Once they were dry I pressed my card a bit because the glitter glue had caused the circles to buckle a bit. Pressing helped them to settle back into place. This card is ready to go and will be send off when I get his brother's card ready as well. Therese
