Stamping Royalty Honorable Mention

I was surprised, but delightfully so, to see that one of the cards I had submitted to Paper Crafts magazine's 2012 Stamping Royalty Contest has been chosen as an Honorable Mention in the Hello/Thinking of You category. This card features stamps from the Avocado Arts set Springtime Celebrations. I created a runway for the chick by cutting and sponging the edges of the mat. I assembled the runway and adhered it to the grey mat at the same time. I stamped the chick on the base first so I wouldn't have to worry about fussy cutting her hair and legs. I stamped her again on a separate piece of cardstock, coloured her with Copic markers, fussy cut her body and adhered her to the card with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped last.

If you like my card, I'd love your vote!! Click HERE. :)

I will be happy even if I don't win. Just to be named an Honorable Mention is an honour in itself! Thank you so much for your constant support and friendship!
