Heartsy Mae


I'm back with another fun card I made using Some Odd Girl stamps, and this time I also used Simon Says Stamp, and Neat and Tangled!

I saw THIS image on pinterest and really loved the pattern, so I thought I'd give it a try using Neat and Tangled On the Strip 2.

It was a LOT harder than I thought! To do it exactly like the cushion, you'd need to do a lot of masking, to ensure that the lines went 'under and over' appropriately. It'd take a LOT of planning too. So I just had a couple of test runs, then gave it a go 'for real'. I'm happy with the result!

The card uses Heartsy Mae for the main image (ain't she lovely?!) and Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banner Greetings

Her hair bled a little, because I was trying out a different cardstock to colour on (the Bazzill one), but I don't recommend it. Lovely for stamping and general use, but NOT for Copic Colouring.

That's it!

Hope you liked it!
