SENTIMENTALS CARTRIDGE AND COPIC MARKERS
Yesterday I finally put together a card that has been going around in my head for awhile. I wanted to use the desk, and chair image from the Sentimentals Cartridge and the mirror from Lacey Labels. I cut the layer on the desk a bit larger to give the allusion of four legs on the desk. Not sure it worked but here it is. I then colored the images using my Copic markers. The backroound paper is Teresa Collins from a paper stack I bought through MY Steals. I could have printed some similar designs using the Imagine Baby Boutique Cart, but since this one looked more like wallpaper, I decided to go with it. The card is 5 inche square and so needed a matching brown envelope. I used the envelope on the Imagine machine using the Imagine More Cartridge and just used the cut only function on brown cardstock (No need to use up the ink on the Imagine when doing a solid color when my paper stash is full of solid 12 inch cardstock!).
I distressed the edges of mirror, the desk and the chair with Galaxy Gold Brilliance inkpad, I also used the gold inkpad and a sponge to distress the finished card. I love the effect of the gold so I outlined the desk and chair with a gold fine tipped pen.
I am trying to figure out the perfect Sentiment for this card. Any ideas??
