The perfect background for Strolling Mae

The perfect background for Strolling Mae

Hello Oddies….Lynda here to share with you something fun.

I thought I would share with you a great way to stretch your pattern paper in your collection.  First I started out by coloring the adorable Strolling Mae image using my copic markers.  I kept each color pulled from my case so I could use them later in the project.  I then fussy cut the image and then used my black marker to color the edges of the image.  I then backed it onto white cardstock and fussy cut that image out again leaving a small white border around the entire image.

I then decided on my pattern paper.  I picked this great floral pattern that was done in simple black and white.

I then used the same colors from coloring my main image to color the pattern paper.  Creating the perfect match to my first colored image.

Once colored I backed the print onto my card base made from green cardstock.  I then adhered Mae to the card using foam tape.  I then added my sentiment that I had printed onto white cardstock and mounted with the same green as my card base.  I used this fun line tape to create the great black border along the card front.  I also added some silver marker to her pendant so it shines.

I hope you liked this technique and will take a peek at how you can alter your pattern paper using markers.

Happy crafting….Lynda
