Hello My Finned Friend

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne bringing you the Friday edition of the blog.  My card features one of the new stamps from Lil' Bluebird Designs and one of the new sentiment with shadows dies.  Right now both of these releases are on sale for a limited time!

I started by coloring the cat and fishbowl from the Kitty Love stamp set and cutting the Hello using the Hello with Shadow die.

I used mostly Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers with a few Copic markers.

Next I cut an A2 panel from patterned paper and a scalloped circle using the second largest of the dies and a stitched circle also using the second largest of the dies.

To get my ombre panels I first colored the whole circle using Distress Oxide ink and a blending brush.

I then used the Hills Slimline die to cut a curve about 1/3 of the way from the top.  Setting the top portion aside, I inked the rest of the circle.  Then I cut another curve, set the upper portion aside and inked the bottom portion. This gave me three gradated panels for my circle.

I turned them over and used double sided tape to hold them together.  This allowed me to flip them over  and glue them as one piece to the scalloped circle.

 I used a coordinating ribbon on the left side of the panel.

Using foam tape I popped up the circle over the ribbon.

I added my kitty, the sentiment and a few enamel dots to finish it off!  I hope you've enjoyed my card today.  Be sure to visit the online store to check out these and other stamps and dies from the new releases!
