Friends of Unity May 2020 blog hop

Hello. It's Friends of Unity blog hop time. This month, we are doing our favorite Angie Girl.  It was way too hard to pick a favorite, so I reached in my Angie Girl box and just pulled one out. 


I ended up with Wakely Girl which actually is a favorite of mine.


I went with a distressed feel and used my Distress Oxides for the background. I smooshed Antique Linen on my mat and misted it with water and then just drug my card front through it until I liked it. When that was dry, I smooshed Brushed Corduroy, misted it with water and then picked it up with acetate and randomly smooshed it around on the card front. I used a circle stencil and randomly stenciled over this with Ground Espresso. I stamped Wakely girl on the background with Ground Espresso and then on a separate sheet with Copic friend ink. The sentiment was stamped with Ground Espresso also.

Copics used:
Sweater-E07, E08, E 09
Boots & Bag-E71, E74, E77
Accesories-B93, B97,YG63,
Hair & Skin-E01, E21, E23, E25

Don't forget to hop along with us and comment for a chance to win a prize.

Alaine-you are here
