Fresh out of grey matter today so I can’t come up with a good title for this post.

I was making a birthday card for a customer and had this image already stamped and coloured just sitting in a basket on my desk so I decided to use it for the card.  The PP is Basic Grey Two Scoops – and I think this is the first time I’ve used it.  The colours in the paper were nice and soft and went well with my image (you should really choose the paper first and then pick the colours for your image if you want a nicely coordinated card but I don’t do that evey 50% of the time.  I tend to pick the paper AFTER I colour the image.  Some day I’ll learn!)

The layout is cased with just a few slight changes.  I think it’s really cute and I even got to use some heart-shaped brads from my stash.  I used my slot punch again for the bow on the side of the image.  The hole is a little large for 1/4 inch ribbon but I don’t have much larger ribbon and find it a bit bulky on a card when tying a bow.  Maybe next time.

Et voilà:

Good old Whipper Snapper!  Coloured on watercolour paper using SU markers and an aquapainter.  Stickles on the hairbow to give it a little bling factor.  Sponged around the image and the PP.  Still stalking Anna Wight’s blog for a sponging tutorial!  Speaking of Anna, she kindly advised the type of patterned paper she has been using on her cards so I will be searching the ‘net for that.  (there’s no way they sell it here)  She uses a lot of soft coloured polka-dotted paper and the scale of the polka dots is the right size for card making.  Must find some soon! (’cause I don’t already have enough paper!)

Have to start my workday!  See ya later.
