Dana here and I cannot wait to share with you all the fun stuff I got to play with yesterday!! This is a long one, so get a cup of coffee and sit back! I'll start with the finished card first so as I show you the work in progress it will make sense.
Wow!! She's really getting rained on!! Ok, so I warned you, here comes all the parts that went into making this. It's got a little surprise twist!
First I stamped her with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black on Copic X-Press IT paper and on two different patterned papers.
Those blue polka dot pieces have already been cut out. I then shaded all of my paper pieces with my copics. I find it's easier to do that before I glued it down just because I tend to get glue everywhere!
Here's where my card took a wonderful turn. I used Washi Tape to create a large portion of this card! This was my first time using this product and I love this stuff!! The one I used is actually from the Coffret du Coturier Blue set. You can see here I started building my shaker portion by cutting out a nestie shape. I created the ground line with the washi tape and then I glued down my X-Press IT piece.
I never saw those red ones until I was editing these pics. Who knows if it made it into the final card or not.. lol!
I cut a piece of transparency with the same nestie. I added foam tape all the way around the image panel leaving one section with the paper still on it to add my beads into.
Now this is where I had my happy accident! Originally I had planned on using a frame I had cut with the same nestie shape but my foam tape showed in places. So I decided to cover those bits with more Washi Tape. Well, I ended up using the Washi Tape to complete the rest of the frame and I LOVE how it turned out!!
Because the tape I used is thinner I just did two widths. It was really easy to line up the pattern. Then I cut it in small sections and folded it to the back.
