Wild Thing Card Set

My Friend Melinda fell in love with this image and wanted me to make her up some cards with it! Its a Magnolia stamp, sweet crazy love...! I colored it with Promarkers, keeping it subtle because i was going to do a background that popped! I added a dotted background to the image, cuz i just like that way it looks and its me....and it adds more "texture" I got a suprise package from melinda the other day and in it was this roll of burlap!!! soooooooooo i thought how cool would it be to use on this card! The back ground die cut shape i did the shaving cream technique! how fun is that. Bailee my daughter and i  had shaving cream up to our elbows! lol You just spray some shaving cream on a paper plate then drop some of you inks on to the shaving cream, then swirl through the shaving cream. Press a sheet of card stock, i used stampin up into and press down . I did a whole sheet 8x12 in to the saving cream and had to lift and move around till the whole paper was covered. Let set a minute, then scrap off the shaving cream. And wow...look what you get, always something new every time. For the burlap, i had to think of how i was going to attach it to the card. I had all kinds of ideas but finally decided to just mod podge it to a colored piece of card stock and let it dry, it sticks to the card stock really well and easy with the mod podge. And then the colored card stock peeks through. I added some twine along with the sentiment wild thing you make my heart sing..from magnolia as well. I think Melinda will be pleased with these cards. I made her another suprise, i will post AFTER she recieves her order as i dont want her to sneak a peek before!
I will have some  more items to show in the next few days AND dont forget TUESDAY is the big birthday blog hop and prizes and things will be given away, one from my blog! So keep checking back ok!
