Loads of Love

Here is a fun card that I made for a recent Funshop.  I used lots of different elements so that I could demonstrate different tools/techniques to the guests.  Here's what I showed them:

1.  How Versamark ink creates a watermark effect when stamped on Bazzill cardstock (and I also showed how to stamp it on white-core paper and sand to create a similar look)
2.  How to color with aquacolor crayons and a dove blender.
3.  How to use the Big Bite to set an eyelet in the middle of your card.
4.  How to use a scor-pal to score a line on the card.
5.  How to use a scor-bug to emboss dots on your card.
6.  How to outline with a grey tombow marker.
7.  How to use Cloud scissors to make a decorative edge.
8.  How adding ribbon to a card really "ties" it all together! :)

Here's a closeup of the eyelet in the card.  I think it is a fun element to place an eyelet through the layers and then tie the ribbon through that. 

Paper:  Kraft & Ultrasmooth White Cardstock, Pink & Blue Bazzill
Stamps:  TAC Skinny Birds & Curls & Swirls
Inks:  VersaMark, Burnt Umber
Other:  Aquacolor crayons, dove blender, scorpal, scorbug, ribbon, eyelet, Grey Tombow Marker
