Make it Monday 1 - Thinking of You

Hello there,

well this is turning out to be a bumper week on the blog! Yes I do have something else to show you - Mr almost 3 who was feeling very poorly with a cold (which he has now oh so kindly passed on to Mum) actually had a nap Tuesday - and I set straight to work to have a go at the very first PTI Make it Monday challenge. The first technique/ challenge was to use a sentiment collage on your card.

So I pulled all my PTI sets out of the cupboard and started thinking - and decided to go with a thinking about you card! Once I had Tiny Treats Valentine out and On My Couch I just couldn't go past putting that very cute little doggy on the couch.

OK I started with Chocolate base, then added a layer of Aqua Mist, my sentiment collage was added to the bottom of the Aqua panel all stamped in Chocolate except one key sentiment in red. For an accent I added a little red heart next to it and a couple more brown ones else where in the sentiment collage. For the upper half I used some white cardstock impressed with the Linen and Canvas impression plate. I added a scalloped strip of Happy Spots patterned paper over the join. For the focal point I used a Mat Stack 3 die cut, over that I added a couch die cut from Happy Spots paper. To give the couch some shading I used a copic (BG11). I stamped the little dog and coloured him in with copics (E35, 37,39 R29), cut him out and used dimensionals to sit him on the couch. The final accents were a cluster of buttons, all threaded with bakers twine, and some more bakers twine wound across the die cut. Oh and I added a little glaze to the two red hearts.

My DH is likely to do some travelling later this year - so I'm thinking this might be good card to write and tuck into his suitcase to open while he is away.
