Ready for another irreverent card? Here's a second saying by the same person (with permission) who gave us this one, and I immediately envisioned it like this:
Well, truth be told, I envisioned it completely differently than this, but I'd forgotten how large that stamp image is, so I had no room to do the sentiment any other way. In the back of my brain, I heard BR #2 muttering, "Ya know, you could make that card bigger...". Ach, too late. I could also overlap the layers, but then I'd hide her fashionable shoes, and we could not have that now, could we!
I printed the sentiment on Whisper White, but I wanted to stamp the image on Naturals White, so I spent about 20 minutes this morning trying to coax my printer to print on the much thicker Naturals White, but the printer was having none of that. I was forced to devise Plan B, and I just sponged some Really Rust ink over the white to mute it. It's passable.
I paper-pieced her dress, and I actually used a piece of virgin patterned paper for that, but everything else is from the Scrap Heap. Since I began my quest back in March to use up all my partial pieces of card stock, I have hardly cut into any new sheets. VERY cost-effective!
Since this card IS all about that sentiment, I may break down some time this weekend and re-make her on a larger card so I can do the sentiment panel the way I'd originally planned. But for now, this is it.
Sigh ... Time to leave for the Day Job. Thanks for stopping by!
