Gingersnap Creations     Tell It Like It Is--Focus on Faux Techniques

First, I have to tell you a sinus infection is laying me low, so I'll be hit and miss for awhile.
Second, over at Gingersnap Creations the month of February they are focusing on Faux Techniques and guess what Rogue Redhead Designs is the Sponsor this time around. 
The first challenge of the month GC137: Chestnut Theme Challenge-Words of Wisdom will run until March 4, 2012. You've got a chance to win a $15.00 Voucher and be the Home Page Artist.
I made this card hoping to give you a little bit of inspriation focusing on the Faux Background paper technique. 
These stamps are from one of the new releases at Rogue Redhead Designs, Just Sayin'.
I stamped the background stamp from the set very lightly, then stamped the words and sponged around the edges. This is also a Faux Button, two layers of cereal box glued together with paper glued to that, punched the holes with a Crop-A-Dile and covered with Glossy Accents. You know you have to let that dry over night when you've got such a thick layer. Attached this to the background with this sparkly baker's twine I found in the jewelery dept ( I don't think they call it baker's twine). I stamped the little quirky lady ready for anything with her black umbrella and I gave her a little pink fur hat and bow and colored all with Copic Markers.
Hope to see you over at Gingersnaps this month using lots of Faux Techniques.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

Get better soon! Sinus infections are miserable.

Fab card! Love the wonderful background you made and great coloring!

I never would have guessed that was a faux button by the way.
