Ooops Pin-up!

Me again!  Hello!
This time I'm writing you from ATC's and Cards with Attitude.  It's new challenge time again-Anything Goes/Buttons and Bows!  This fortnight our wonderful sponsors are LEJ Designs, Delicious Doodles and Just Some Lines.  Just Some Lines is a new one for us and they create fantastic images! Unfortunately, I don't have one to show you because I goofed up and did my card with one of September 21st sponsor images- Smeared Ink.  Oops!   Well, you get a special sneak preview, right?

In making this kind of card, I colored Killer Bo Peep with Prisma Pencils then sized a playing card image to fit, making 2 of the image.  One image I covered the 6 spades with a white filled text box so the spades wouldn't show.  (He was born on the 6th). To put together, I cut a piece of white card stock to fit between and sandwiched the pieces all together.  I wanted to round the corners and maybe distress the edges to make the playing card look old but I was afraid I would mess it up and didn't have time to remake the card base.  So on with the show I went- fussy cut  Killer and adhered her to the middle, added the bow, tag, and pin (by Karen) so it can slide off.  Karen makes the best pins!  From elegant to skulls!  She takes special orders, too.

My brother has a 50's style garage like you wouldn't believe!  A person could live in there!  LOL.  And he does collect old fashioned pin-ups that he hangs in his garage, so this playing card aught to give him a laugh.  I hope you like it.  I had trouble taking the pic but here you go...Killer Bo Peep-


Ohhhh, she is lovely!
