Week 11: Do You Stack Up - Add a Bow

Hi there!  We are onto Week 11 at the Do You Stack Up Challenge Blog!

This weeks theme is:
Add a Bow

Our sponsors this week are (Click on the pictures to take you to the shops):


I made my card using an image from Jellypark called Dinosaur Boy.   As I didn't want the card to be too girly I added a bow tie instead of a regular bow.  I think he looks really smart!

I stamped the sentiment in black ink then took a black marker and drew the outline by hand, then smudged some black ink over the top and edges to give it a more roughed up look!

You might have noticed that the dinosaur is printed onto fabric.  I wanted to use the fabric I use on some of my dinosaur t-shirts so I cut a piece adhered it to a piece of iron on fusible webbing.  This has a peel off back that reveals something akin to doublesided tape.  I then stuck this to a piece of printer paper and fed it through the printer like any other normal piece of paper.  It worked perfectly.  I ironed over the top just to make sure the ink was dry and then cut it out and stuck it on my project!

Looking forward to seeing all your creations! Load them up at DYSU!
