So excited to share with you my first post as a member of the Some Odd Girl Core Team!!!
I thought I would share with you a great way to stretch your pattern
paper in your collection. First I started out by coloring the adorable Strolling Mae image
using my copic markers. I kept each color pulled from my case so I
could use them later in the project. I then fussy cut the image and
then used my black marker to color the edges of the image. I then
backed it onto white cardstock and fussy cut that image out again
leaving a small white border around the entire image.
I then decided on my pattern paper. I picked this great floral pattern that was done in simple black and white.
I then used the same colors from coloring my main image to color the
pattern paper. Creating the perfect match to my first colored image.
Once colored I backed the print onto my card base made from green
cardstock. I then adhered Mae to the card using foam tape. I then
added my sentiment that I had printed onto white cardstock and mounted
with the same green as my card base. I used this fun line tape to
create the great black border along the card front. I also added some
silver marker to her pendant so it shines.
Be sure to check out all the amazing inspiration from the Some Odd Girl Core team on their blog.
