Rocky's Family Sing
This is a card using Rocky and Family from DigiStamp Boutique. Today is the last day to get this image in the Offer of the Month.
I'm using this week's Mojo Monday sketch 154. I'm so glad I get email updates when those sketches come up, it's so nice. Rocky and Family are colored with my default Prismacolor Markers and you can't see it but I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the dots of snow in this image and cut it out with a circle Nestabilities die. I grabbed from my pile of leftover paper and believe me not, the paper matched my coloring almost exactly! The paper is from My Mind's Eye Bohemia pack and the cardstock is Wausau Royal Fiber in Chocolate and Blue. The blue cardstock is embossed with Kassie's Brocade folder by ProvoCraft and then I padded it with my Versamark pad to accept some chalk. I grabbed some old paper chalk and brushed the side of a blue and brown stick against the raised emboss and quickly rubbed it out for softness. What I found was that it felt like flocked paper! So cool, I hope to play with that technique some more. The sentiment was stamped with a word from Stampin' Up's flexible phrases and then the other letters using the Rough Alphabet set. It was punched out with a tag punch and framed with chocolate stock and cut along the bottom side with a Fiskars Corkscrew scissors. (I know I'm dipping into my kids craft tools again. Tisk, tisk, tisk.) I ran some scrap pieces of chocolate cardstock through the embossing folder and then cut it down to size for the photo corner. Some ribbon from my Offray Orange Cream spool and a clear button with a scrap of Bohemia adhered to the back of it with Glossy Effects and my card is done.
That's it for today, thanks so much for stopping by!
