I made this card during the Alabama-Florida game. I'm a nervous game watcher so it's this or chew on my fingernails! By the way, not only did we win but we won big! RTR!
I created this for the current Tiddly Inks Challenge to use a crackle finish or Diamond Glaze. I printed the Tiddly Inks "Donna" image onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock. I then positioned a piece of the patterned paper onto a sheet of plain paper and printed again so I could paper piece the umbrella portion. After cutting out the umbrella I squeezed a layer of Diamond Glaze onto it. I was happy to see that my Epson ink held up well against the water based glaze. I have never had a smearing problem with printing digital images either. I cut two layers of "grass" with a Martha Stewart punch temporarily adhering to the bottom of the image and then cut all with a Spellbinders Nestabilties. After cutting I removed the grass and added some Diamond Glaze to it as well giving it a wet appearance. I sponged the edges of the image piece while it was still in the die and then colored with Copic Markers. I assembled the card while the Diamond Glaze was drying. The umbrella was attached with a pop dot and glue under the bottom corners so it would curve.
