Arctic Deep Colorbox Chalk Ink. I colored portions of the image with Copic and added Glossy Accents to all of the windows. It dressed up the image just enough without taking a ton of time. I distressed the edges of the blue panel with my cool new Prima Distressing Tool and sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I love all the different things this one tool can do! I turned down the corner of the image panel and attached the sentiment using a silver brad. I also added waves using the Wave Border Die and added three Split Pea rhinestones to the bottom left of the card.
My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally 6x6 paper pad so I started with that and Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #45 for the layout. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, paper pieced the apron with the checkerboard paper, and colored the rest with Copics. We're pretty spoiled these days with all the dies that will cut out stamped images quickly and perfectly, but I really wanted to cut around Moka Bobby so he would stand out a little more from the image panel. So I decided to try out another new tool, the Prima Craft Knife. It has 4 different blades and a little hidden storage compartment in the handle for all of them! After popping up the image on foam tape I layered it onto Spellbinders Lacey Circles, added a sentiment and three glitter brads in the corner and called it good!
