Lady Jane

Hi, everyone! Time once again for the Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz. The optional "twist" for this week's challenge is to use dies and/or punches.  For the entire month of May the sponsors are Stitchy Bear and Paper Temptress. Here is the card I made for this challenge.

After deciding what dies I was going to use, I first created my base card and layered it with GKD Blue Denim card stock. I added a layer of patterned paper from my stash.

Next, I worked on my focal image which is a Stitchy Bear Designs digital stamp entitled "Lady Jane".  I colored the image with Copic markers and then die cut it with Spellbinders Elegant Ovals. Using a die from Marianne Creatables Anja's Large Ovals, I cut a panel in blue denim card stock and matted my focal image. This was then popped on to my base card.

I thought the sentiment was perfect for this image and had it computer generated and then cut and embossed it with the smallest die from Spellbinders 5x7 Detailed Scallops die. I adhered it to my card with dimensionals and my card was finished

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge for the other DT creations. Hope they will inspire you to join the challenge and enter your card/project.
