* Vera Lane Studio: Be You


I hope you are safe and well!

Today is my DT day at Vera Lane Studio and I have made a card with a set called Be You which was released a few weeks ago.

I coloured the image with Copic markers and fussy cut her. I left the scalloped border uncoloured. The background is stamped with Verasmark and heat embossed with white powder. Distress Oxides were smeared over the top and then water was sprinkled to bleach out a little colour and allow oxidisation. The edges of the background are inked in black and I also stamped some mesh in black. 
The scalloped border was trimmed to size and acts as grounding for my girl and the small, left over piece was adhered to the side. I cut the sentiment into strips, inked the edges lightly in black, and glued it to the background.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!


Thanks for stopping by today.
