Anything But a Card - Bugaboo Stamps


My non-card project for the Bugaboo Stamps blog today is an ATC - an Artists's Trading Card, measuring the required 64mm x 89mm.

The Bugaboo image featured on it is called Sweet Angel

I used Copic markers and Stickles to colour her.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The base card is turquoise cardstock, and I used an offcut of fshiny paper as the border along the base.  Three silver pearls are my embellishment.

ANYTHING BUT A CARD - BUGABOO STAMPS

Bugaboo Stamps images are great to use on tags!

I have used a simple flower image (there are lots in the Bugaboo Store )

It's coloured using Copics and has a gem for the flower centre.
