Tuesday Throwdown July Week 2 GDT.

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I head back to work... Yuck! I have enjoyed the time off! Now it's time to get back to the daily grind. Today is the 2nd week of July at Tuesday Throwdown and time for another challenge. Here is my 2nd card as GDT. I hate this card LOL, but it is me playing with my Cameo to figure it out! This week they are sponsored by Meljen's Designs and the theme is Let's Have A Picnic.

Here is my card:







I used Marching Ant Frame and Watermelon Ant. I wanted to figure out how to cut around a digital image, so I used Watermelon Ant and figured out how to cut it on the Cameo. I pieced the different cardstock together. I added some chalk on the green and pink of the watermelon. I colored the star buttons and the black around the border with my Copic Markers. I popped the three buttons and added twine to them.  The Thanks is a Paper Smooches stamp to finish it off.

Copic Markers:
  • Black: C5, C7, C9
  • Blue: B24, B26, B29
  • Red: R14, R35, R46, R59
  • Yellow: Y11, Y15, Y19

((((Susan))) Had a typo in the first post so deleted it. Please don't hate your card. It is cute and I love the Ants! I too am new to the Cameo, my only problem is currently it doesn't have a permanent home and is not hooked up. Will get back to learning once I reorganize a little more. Thanks for stopping by The Paper Nest Dolls! Melanie, DT
