Here's Looking at You, Kid!

Hi, everyone! Happy Wednesday!

Gonna make this one short and sweet because I'm heading out to meet a friend for lunch.  :)

The card below was inspired by the Simon Says At the Movie and the CASual Fridays Dimension & Bling Challenges.

  • There aren't too many farewell speeches better than Bogey's to Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca. So, I thought a different take on this might make for a cute little Send a Smile 4 Kids card.
  • I tried to create some dimension with masking and coloring. While the masking turned out well, I'm not sure I was successful with the coloring part. As for the bling, I used inked-up glittery paper for the picture frame and added a few corner sequins for good measure. 

Neenah Soler white; Stampin' Up whisper white; Distress Ink Victorian velvet core paper
Recollections silver glitter paper, inked in StazOn jet black
Paper Smooches healthy vibes images, colored with Prismacolor pencils
background inked in DI peacock feathers and tumbled glass, applied with Ranger blending tool
computer-generated, movie-inspired sentiment
SU framelits die; Paper Smooches stitched die
SU twine; stash sequins; Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents embellishments on eyes
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Ranger multi medium matte; Recollections foam squares

Since I used a Paper Smooches image and stitched die, I'm going to link this up to the Anything Goes Challenge and Guest Designer Search over at PS.

Parting Thoughts 

Did you see the new challenge today at Words 2 Craft By. Just like last month, there are prizes up for grabs.  :)

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
