Today's challenge is the letter C, we could do a number of things, such as, use a cartridge that began with the letter C, use a letter C on our project, use an image that began with a letter C or use a function key on the cartridge that begain with a C. I used the Cricut cartridges, Cindy Loo and Create a Critter. I've had this note book hanging around naked for sometime now, so it finally decided to get dressed.
The background paper is by Bobunny, super awesome company by the way. I measured the book, cut the paper then laid the cover on the paper and marked where the square holes were. I then used the marks as guides for my paper punch from Stampin' Up made for this very purpose. It worked perfectly!! I was super thrilled too! After getting the holes punched I applied the paper to the cover using mat decoupage medium.
Everything is cut from cream card stock, I printed everything on the imagine using the Imagine More cartridge. I really, really love my Imagine, this closeup shows the one flaw with printing and using decoupage medium over them. The colors run. I had to be extra careful and wash my brush quite often to keep from contaminating the whole project but I managed to still get some color in areas I didn't want it.
I used a foam dot to pop up my little lady bird's wing and had to add the google eyes. I think I like them a little too much. I probably have hundreds of them just waiting to be glued to something cute!
I'm not sure the background paper really goes with the love birds, but the book is cute anyway...at least I think so.
Thanks so much for looking, please leave me a comment, I LOVE reading them!
