Well, I almost think that today I should have just left the crafting things in their drawers and done something else instead, but I didn't. I finally got a card that was fairly good looking so I will post it. On this card I used a new stamp set from Gina K. Designs called Springtime Baskets. And, a chevron cover-up die was also a new item that finally got used.
First of all when I stamped the design in black pigment ink it did not seem to emboss like I wanted it to. But I did that again and the second time around it was some better. And when I applied the bleach it only made the blue lighter in color and not white like I had hoped but I it was still light enough so that I could color in the image. First I tried colored pencils and they looked terrible. So I then went over them with some Tombow markers. On the basket however all I did was color over the bleached light blue with some white colored pencil to make it a bit more white looking.
So now it came to the use of my brand new cover die that I got from Die-Namics which I was so excited to use. The first die cutting was a total flop, as was the second. Both were done with white which I really wanted the cover die cut to be but I finally worked with a more golden rod colored card stock and got it to cut through fairly well. And, where it did not cut as well I covered it up with my design.
I was not quite sure what to do with the bleached basket design but at the last resort decided to die cut it with a scalloped die and then add a layer of darker pink behind it. These in turn were laid onto a circle die cut of the blue card stock.
The sentiment was stamped in pink ink on white card stock and then layered onto a layer of blue which was cut with a scalloped scissors. This was then added to a darker pink layer.
I finally got the card assembled then and it was ready to photograph. After repeated tries to get a good photo I finally got one that was suitable. It just seemed the blunders with this card went on and on today. LOL But it is what it is.
