Extra Extra Read All About It

 

HaveYouHeardTheNews_Card

Tilda will be sharing some great news with you tomorrow (Monday). So stop back to read all about it.  Newspaper background on the card was crumpled and distressed with Gray ink and Dusty Concord DI. Tilda was colored using Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol Technique.

The text on the label was computer generated and shaped using Paint Shop Pro. The scalloped label and butterfly was punched.  Both were edged with Dusty Concord Distress ink.

This is my favorite butterfly to date.  I found it online as a freebie and created a svg file then cut it out with my Cricut.  Added some Stickles for added bling.  I love my stickles as some you well know :)

I love how my bow turned out because I am the worse at making bows.  Added a Prima Rose with more Stickles for that special bling touch :)

Did you notice this megaphone on the card?  If not, go back and check it out.  When I finished the card I thought it needed just one more accent on it.  I thought what better embellishment then a megaphone for Tilda to get her message out, loud and clear.  Found the image online and again made a svg file to cut on the Cricut.  Added some black lines for dimension and lots of diamond glaze to make it nice and shiny.  What do you think of my homemade embellishment?

 

Thank you so much for visiting and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for my news.
