…BLD April Blog Hop

BLD-Banner-BlogHop

As you already know, today we’re having a new release blog hop using the new images from By LORi Designs!  If you’ve come from LINDA’S BLOG then you’re in the right place; if not, then you’ll need to start over at ANGELA’S BLOG to catch up and follow along.  Here’s my card for today’s hop…introducing:

Puddle Jumpers Quinn

SFYTTApr2011

I started my card as I would any other…with a sketch.  This time I chose to use April’s SFYTT by Jen del Muro, but I turned it into a standard-sized card instead of a square one.  I printed the Quinn in Black and colored her with Copic Sketch Markers, then paired the completed image with some patterned papers from the Blossom Soup paper pack from Jillibean Soup along with some Riding Hood Red, Kraft, and White Cardstock.  I distressed the edges of the Kraft cardstock panel with the Distrezz-It-All from Zutter…I just LOVE the way the edges fray when distressed with this machine!  I stitched the red dotted panels directly to the large Kraft cardstock panel, then also added some stitching around the edges of the pink text panel.  After adding some Crinkle Ribbon, a handwritten sentiment, Button/Twine accent, and tons of Dimensionals the card was complete!

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by to see me, and hop on over to SHERI’S BLOG to see what she has for you…I’m sure you’ll LOVE it!  Until then…
