Guesting for The Alley Way Stamps - Part 2

Hello Crafters,

as you may have read, I am a guest designer for The Alley Way Stamps this month. I am so glad and grateful to have been given this chance. 

So, without further ado, here is the third card I created for TAWS.

When I first saw the set Petal Pushers  it immediately screamed out to me: Doodle. So I absolutely wanted to try and create some faux doodling with the smaller images from the set.

I picked a water color panel I had done and not used earlier (for Elsa) and stamped the images directly onto it in black ink. I started with the bold negative flower as a center and started to build my doodle from there.

As a sentiment I picked the Hello there from the same set and white embossed it on a black cardstock banner. Then I cut a vellum banner to match and adhered it off center underneath the black banner. I only adhered the right side, so the forked ends can fly up a bit.

Then I decided to sew on the banners as well, but my sewing machine failed me and I ended up with a very crooked pierced line and no thread. So in the end I hand stitched most of it. At last I added a few white accents with a gel pen and rounded the corners.

For my next card I wanted to do something bright and bold with alcohol markers, so I picked the border stamp from Petal Pushers and stamped it at an angle across a front panel several times. 

Then I chose some bright alcohol markers and colors in the image and cut along the top line. I white embossed the German sentiment (Birthday wishes) along the line of my panel onto a bright green card base, doodled a white border for just a little bit extra and adhered the panel with foam pads.

I immensely enjoyed being a guest designer for TAWS, thanks Chrissie and Alison for the chance. I'll be happy to do that again any time.

Wishing you all a great time
