Kopf hoch (Cheer up)

Hi there it's me again, Anja , with another card to share with you on this monday.
I hope you all enjoyed our new release and maybe some of the stamps are heading your way right now?!!!!! anyway over to today's card..........

It seems that I more and more like to stretch te stamps so for today another example to stretch those lovely stamps.

First I made the background with the skinny chevron stencil and distress inkt. Dried it with the heatgun and came back with the stencil sligthly offset and used embossingpaste this time.
now for the stretching. I took one of the "eggs" from eggstraordinary egghunt and masked it off to stamp only the egg shape. Cut it like it was broken and colored it. Stamped the pillow from comfy and the monster from bad day and colored them also. arranged them together on the tag.
Some enamel dots, some twine and washi-tape to spice up the card. The sentiment is from ausflippen and means cheer up.




If you haven't the right color twine to go with your card you can take some white twine and color it with copics in the desired color.
Look at your stamps and imaginewhat you can do with them in a different way you will be surprised what you can create.
