Naughty or Nice

Welcome to Mystery Monday at Club Anya & Friends! Today we're CASE'ing a card by Dictionary and I used Naughty or Nice... featuring the Naughty side. Looking at the CASE'd card, I switched the two shapes in the center having the square behind the circular shape which allowed me to show off the oval cutting die.

The heart swirls and Love sentiment are laser-cut chipboard that I covered with Liquid Pearls. I also used an embossing plate on the oval before cutting it out, however, those details don't show in the pictures. Finally, silk ribbon flowers and pearls were added to finish off the embellishments.

Did you know? The gnomon is the part of a sundial that casts the shadow and is an ancient Greek word meaning "indicator", "one who discerns," or "that which reveals." The world's largest sundial is the Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay, a pedestrian and bicycle bridge in Redding, California, that spans the Sacramento River. The supporting tower of this cable-stay bridge forms the gnomon of a large garden sundial and is 217 foot (66 metre) that points due north at a cantilevered angle, allowing it to serve as the gnomon of a sundial. The shadow is cast upon a large dial to the north of the bridge and the tip of the shadow moves at approximately one foot per minute which is noticable with the naked eye.

  3. awesome card...what kind of paper do you use for coloring with the copic markers?

  4. For this card I used Nenaah paper, I think. I just grabbed a scrap paper on my table, however, the blending didn't work as well so it could be a different brand.


Welcome to my gallery and thanks for your comments! :-D I love reading each one of them.
