A New Year Card that gave me some grey hairs for Karen's Doodles Challenge!!!!


Well, I saw the topic on Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog this week of celebration and thought it would give me chance to get one of my favourite images of Bigsby out to colour in/have a play with.  I duly coloured the image in with Promarkers and decided to do a pyromage of the image so stuck my masking tape to my clothes and then put on the front of the image as I needed to hold my Nesties in the right place.  When cut I went to remove the masking tape and it pulled my image to pieces so I wasn't a happy bunny.  Thankfully with digital images you just go and print another one off but this time I cut before colouring, then placed some masking tape on the back to keep in place when colouring and hey presto it worked.  I thought it hadn't when I came to make it into a card as I couldn't see why the pieces wouldn't come apart as I'd removed the masking tape - the problem was I'd used glossy accents to make the balloons stand out more so I had to prize the pieces apart carefully as I wasn't going to lose the.  I have used a scalloped circle with a circular mat that is from Susie Sugar's shop which I won in a challenge recently.  They are such fab quality.  I have cut a circle with my Cricut as another mat and then cut some smaller ones which I cut in half to adorn the matting.  The card is finished off with some brads, dotty ribbon, flower and a Crafty Ann's ticket sentiment.

Oh such a funny story but I am sure it wasn't for you.I always leave my stuff to dry and my cat steps on it or sticks her whiskers into it. I usually don't notice till I take a picture.LOL
Bigsby looks adorable and he loves to celebrate!
