Meet Aud

Aud is one of the sneek peeks from Victoria Case "Hugs and Hearts Collection #2" exclusive for SCACD Stamp Company. Isn't she cute? She is so versatile, I had a hard time deciding on what sentiment to use, there are so many you can use with this image. She is heat embossed and colored with copics. I have found with heat embossing it is so shiny it puts a glare on some of the picture. I tried all angles, but this picture does not do justice to what Aud or this card really looks like. Make sure you check back tomorrow for another sneek peek. Also, TOMORROW is the release date at SCACD.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday Challenge

Whimsy Stamps Challenge



I think Aud is so adorable. She looks so cheerful and happy. I used a DP from CTMH. I added a little shimmerez to the roses to give a little shine. There is stickles on the flower of Aud's jacket and the flowers on her dress. The leaves are punched, sponged for a more realistic look and I used my stylus to draw stems on the leaves. The background for Aud was made using a Cuttlebug folder. To finish it off I added the ribbon and flatback pearls. The ribbon has just a slight shine to it even though the picture doesn't reflect it.



I popped up several different layers to make it more dimensional. This card looks so much better in person.


The inside is finished out with the DP, flatback pearls, and leaves. I also used the cuttlebug folder on the purple background.

DON'T FORGET TO COME BACK TOMORROW FOR ANOTHER SNEEK PEEK AND FOR

THE RELEASE OF "HUGS & HEARTS COLLECTION #2" EXCLUSIVELY FOR SCACD STAMP COMPANY.

Thank you for stopping by and if you have time, please leave me a comment.
