Bad Day In Progress by Dana Warren

Hello AI fans!! 

Dana here with a card we can all relate too!! We all have bad days, and this would be a perfect card to send someone as a little humorous pick me up!!

I started by stamping the Flamingo on some watercolor card stock. Then I used my Distress Markers and a little water to color it up! I used: Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade, Spun Sugar, Evergreen Bough.

Next, I trimmed the image to fit my card base and cut off the top portion by first using my paper trimmer to cut straight to the image, from both sides. Then I fussy cut around the image. With a black marker, I colored the edge of the image that I cut out.

I stamped the funny sentiment to the left of the image and then added it to some pattern paper with foam tape. Then the whole panel was adhered to a white card base. I think that the image and sentiment carries the card nicely and it didn;t need any enamel dots or sequins!

Thanks for stopping by!! Happy Stamping!!
