Directing Paths

Hello Everyone!!!  Before I went to Melbourne I coloured this bridge image from the new Our Daily Bread set called For The Graduate.  I had it all coloured (with Copics on X-press It Blending Card) and cut out (with Mega Curved Rectangles) and just didn't have time to make it into a card until I got home!  :)  Once home (and had access to my computer again!) I came across this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge 55 and thought it would work well with this image.

I started with a base of white and layered with kraft and some Urban Garden DSP.  The rectangle panel is more kraft layered with Not Quite Navy and then across the bottom is a panel of white border punched with EK Success Dotted Wave and layered with yet more kraft and some white satin ribbon.  I popped up my bridge scene from For the Graduate that has been coloured with Copics (quite a few too and from memory, B00, B02, YG00, YG03, YG63, V15, B21, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37 and Blender).  To finish I added a small satin bow to the corner.

I used the verse, also from For the Graduate, to decorate the inside of the card, stamping it in Not Quite Navy and cutting it out with Petite Large Oval Nestabilities and matting with the matching scallop and matting with Kraft and Not Quite Navy card.

Stamps - For the Graduate (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Not Quite Navy, Kraft, Urban Garden DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Not Quite Navy
Accessories - Copics, Mega Curved Rectangle, Petite Large Oval and Petite Large Oval Scallop Nestabilities, EK Success Dotted Wave Border Punch, White Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
