Reading Buddies

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today?

I have had a fairly busy day, prepping for my UStream tutorial tonight at 8.00 pm.

Today's card I have made using another of Elisabeth Bells Digital images called Reading Buddies.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 square white card which I have matted and layered polka dot paper from my stash.
2. The next layers I distressed white card with Vintage Photo then using my sewing machine added some netting (unfortunately it doesn't show up in the picture) and then I took a piece of musical tissue papers scrunched it up and distressed then sewed this to the card.  I added to the base card.
3. I printed the image onto Supersmooth and coloured with Copics then distressed around the image with DI Vintage Photo, adhered to the base card with foam pads for height.
4. To finish off I added some cream lace and brown flat back pearls to the corners.

Many thanks for visiting today
