Relax you deserve it!

Hi folks! Just a quickie to share with you today. For this card I used some fabulous designs by Giordano, both rubber stamps and printed from the CDrom. I printed out the beautiful backing paper from the Giordano Puppies and Kittens CDrom onto glossy photo paper. Before printing the large image I played with the opacity on my graphics programme to give a more translucent effect.
I stamped the image (Relax you deserve it!) and coloured it with my Prisma colour pencils (it was so refreshing to go back to using pencils to colour) and die cut it with may Nestabilities. I layered these images up onto some gold mirri-card. I used my Nestabilities to cut the scalloped circle and my Carl paper trimmer to create the scallops around the rectangle. I adhered the layers using dimensional glue gel and added the ribbon bow. For a finishing touch I added glitter to the flowers on the stamped image and a little glossy accents to the puppies' nose.
Ciao for now!

Absolutely beautiful, and the whole effect is so evocative of a bygone era. A work of art.
