Hitchin' a Ride

This is another image from my good friend Janice (catcrazy). When we were at the beach, she challenged me to use this image and the seagulls (the card I made on Wednesday) as my next two cards....done and done, my friend! {smile}

I used Beate's Weekend Sketch from last weekend, #WSC48. Thanks, Beate!! Finally got a chance to play!

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge was to replace hardware (brads) with stamps. The stamps I used to replace brads are at the bottom right-hand corner of the card, where I stamped the small flower from the Paper Tray set in Versamark directly on the Wasabi CS. I layered some punched Saffron flowers over the Versamark flowers and then added Candy Cane Stickles in the centers of the punched flowers....same thing with the flowers in the upper left corner.

Here's a close-up of the stamped flowers...

The main image was stamped on white CS. I cut two horizontal lines into the edges of the stamped image, and then hand cut around the flowers, leaves, bird, and handle to get the Out-of-the-box technique. The bird is popped up on a dimensional. The image is colored with prisma pencils (blended with Gamsol) and then I used a Warm Grey #1 Copic marker to trace the inside of the kittens.
