Lil' Swinger

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

Happy Friday the 13th!!!  Oh, and it's finally Fab Friday again too!!!  So don't forget to stop by the High Hopes website and visit the Fab Fridays sale section!  There are some great deals going on there.  The link can be found here. Happy shopping!!! 

For today's card, here is a very sweet image from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection...
 Jane
 
This is Lil' Swinger (TT032), Lil' Swinger SVG File (TT032SVG), and Love Blooms sentiment (HH014).  Such a cutie! 

To start, I cut the SVG files for the Lil' Swinger image (using the point 7 file for the stamped image) on watercolour paper. I used a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, some Ranger-Golden Rod Stickles were applied on the flower centres to add some sparkle.

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Sage Shadow cardstock.  The background paper is from My Mind's Eye-On Trend 6x6 Paper Pad. The additional layers of cardstock are also from SU-Groovy Guava and White.  The Lil' Swinger was mounted on the SVG cut file (14-layering) using the Sage Shadow cardstock, and then foam tape was applied to mount the main image on the card and add some dimension.  For the sentiment, Love Blooms - this was heat embossed using white embossing powder and a flower shaped rhinestone was added in the centre of the "o" in Love. Foam tape was also used to adhere the sentiment on the card. To complete this card, a piece of SU Sage Shadow ribbon was placed with a bow tied on, to help make the swing look like it was hanging from something.  A bunch of gold rhinestones were added on the ribbon to coordinate with the gold foiled flowers on the designer paper.
