Hey Diddle Diddle


As I mentioned on a previous post I became a grandma again in 2013 and the sex of the baby was kept a surprise until the birth, so this is the other card I made!  The base card is white, and baby themed peel offs have been used as stencils to create a border around the edge as before( A Few of my Favourite things).  Blue Brilliance ink is used over the peel offs leaving a white image when they are removed.  Another stencil is used to create the background panel.  Firstly it is embossed in a machine using white centura pearl.  Then leaving the stencil on the card, sweep the blue ink over the whole panel using cut'n'dry foam.  When the stencil is taken away it leaves an embossed pattern in blue and white.  Using a set of large Nestability dies  three shaped panels of different sizes are cut and embossed, the largest in pastel blue pearlescent card, the next size from the background panel.  They are matted and layered on to each other, with some ribbon being added to the background panel.   Then they are attached to the base card.  The smallest shaped panel is the focal panel.  The stamp used in this card is a set of four images telling a nursery rhyme.  The images are stamped and heat embossed on to the panel, then coloured with pro-markers.  The panel is put back into the die and blue ink is added to the inner edges.  Another much smaller panel is cut and embossed from the blue card and a sentiment is added.  The focal panel is attached to the card with dimensional glue as is the sentiment panel.
