Hangin' On!

This was such a fun card to make and I’ll admit I puttered with those flowers for quite a while but its relaxing and a wonderful way to de-stress! 

The image was colored with both Copic markers (bear fur, pink ears, bandage on rear and clothespins) and Prismacolor pencils (long johns, sock, clothesline, shading on white cloth and flowers).

The image is attached to the card with foam squares cut to the sized needed.

I embossed the flowers with a metal ball stylus and a folded paper towel for a cushion. Negative portions of Cuttlebug dies were used for the black centers. I use a stick pin dipped in glue to pick up the small pieces and place on the larger piece, press down with the finger and pull away the pin then slide into place if needed.

The largest flowers were popped up with tiny foam circles, the next larger size was popped up with two 1/8” circles of cardstock glued together and then to the flower, the smallest flowers aren’t popped up. Aleene’s tacky glue was used for all attaching pieces to each other and to the card.
