Meet Mikey!!

Ooh I do love introducing new collections. Louise has created a super new collection to go with the Holly & Madision bundles, featuring Mikey, boyfriend of Madison - although I am sure the girls will fight over this hunky dude!


On this card I layered the image on several mats cut out with Nestabilities Label Three dies. I tried to make the smaller patches at the back look like jean pockets. All the chipboard is by Rusty Pickle, the stars were coloured with my Copics, and the rest inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink "broken china". The ink was also used for inking all the edges on everything else. The dotted paper is K&Co Broken China.

TOP TIP:
I created the "Cool" sentiment in MS Word, using the Word Art facility. To enable me to layer it on my image I double-clicked on Mikey and chose his layout as "Behind text". This then meant I could move him to where I wanted him in relation to the text. Once I was happy with position I simply printed it out. Again this illustrates the versatility of the digi-stamps.



The new collection will be available to buy next weekend.

Have a lovely Monday. Remember - if your week drags then just daydream a little of Mikey, you're going to get your mitts on him soon enough :-)
