SNG - Hello .....

....  Good morning!  I am so enjoying all the warm (relatively) temperatures and the grass reappearing - it is definitely spring!  Today I've got a fresh, spring-like card with a slightly quirky take!!

Hello - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Steampunk Rose Bug; Kaisercraft - Shine Bright
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder
Dies: Spellbinders - Petit Ovals Sm (S4-140) #4; Die-namics - Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Wild Wasabi; Kaisercraft DP - Violet Crush; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear

I really like the Steampunk genre and when I saw Rick's new Steampunk Rose Bug image I knew I had to play with it - you can find it and many other Steampunk themed images at Rick's Zibbet and Esty shops.  I coloured the image with Copic markers, cut it out with an oval die and then added some sparkle to the bug, the flower and the gem.  I edged the cut image with a purple marker.  The colours are from Colour Throwdown - CTD#333 and the layout is based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#177.  I used a couple of sheets of design paper and some green card to cover the card base and added the image and sentiment banner on top.  On the inside I cut some more of the design paper and added a panel of white card for my message.

The photo doesn't really capture all the shimmer and sparkle on the image, so I took a close-up, slightly out of focus, to really show the bling!!

I really do like this image and one of the great things about digital images is that you can resize them.  I think I'm going to print this one again, but much bigger - I'll share that with you soon.  Have a great day.
