Picture This!

It's time for  another challenge over at TTCRD where the theme is always Anything Goes!  This week's sponsor is Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and this fun image is Birthday Cheese!  I really like this image since I love photography and it works for anyone's birthday.  I will be holding on to this card for a birthday later in the year!

I started with a white card base and layered with a piece of Peacock Fundamental paper.  Next, I colored my image with colored pencils and gel pens.  I added a background with Canary ink and created a Bokeh sort of effect with white pigment ink using a circle stencil and the backside of a flower stamp which created a smaller circle.  I thought the Bokeh effect might give the illusion of the flash of the camera!  

I cut my Polaroid type frame with a Cricut after welding on the FUN in Design Space.  Using a razor blade, (might be safer to use a craft knife......I should probably invest in one of those!) I cut around the corners of the 'picture' in my image.  That way the corners could come out over the frame giving it some dimension!   

Material List:
CTMH Cardstocks:  Fundamentals Peacock, Daisy White, Black
CTMH Watercolor Pencils
CTMH Inks:  Canary, Daisy White
Gel Pens 
Cartridges:  CTMH Artistry and Artbooking
