Design Team card with My Besties image for the Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog

Hello everyone!
Today is very exciting for me because this is my first card as a Design Team member for the Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge blog.
We have a challenge that is “Anything goes” that runs for the second week and today is a reminder for it. Come join and play with us as we have some great prizes for the winners!
I am using for my card a My Besties image 729 from Sherri Baldy.

I printed the image on watercolor paper and I masked the little girl so I could work on the background. I stamped the grass with distress inks and I colored them with markers on top to create some depth. The grass stamp has a butterfly on it, so I stamped just the butterfly around the little girl. I also used distress ink for the sky. When I was finished with the background I took away the mask and colored the image with my Inktense pencils. I used some clear wink of Stella on her eyes and eye lashes and my white gel pen on the headband, the bows in her hair and the butterflies. I also did some dots on the sky with it around the butterflies.

For the sentiment I used black versacolor and I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I used some background paper that has embossed glittered flowers on it and I matted it with blue card stock. I also used it for the card itself and for matting the rest of my background pieces. I then assembled everything together.

So there is my card for today.
I really enjoyed making it and I hope you like it!

  2. Olga, this is lovely! Enjoyed reading about the steps in creating this card, and you did some lovely work. The grass looks so natural with the Bestie image, and I'm loving the vertical floral border. Great work on the image coloring too. TFS & Hugs.


  3. What a fun card Olga, you did a great job putting it together! The colours are bright and happy and the image is adorable. I love how you have used the blue cardstock to mat and border all the different sections of the card, it frames everything perfectly. Great job!
