Stampington Mannequin Card

Another Mannequin card today - adore this stamp. I wanted the stamp a bit larger and whilst its easy to make stamps smaller by using Shrink plastic method, its hard to make a normal stamp larger. So what I finally did was stamped out the image and then scanned it into the computer and enlarged it and then printed it out like a digital image. That way I got it quite a bit larger and it was easier to color and fitted my card better.
Materials: Black cardstock, white cardstock, Pink Bazzil cardstock, Black/white cardstock from Pink Petticoat CD, rhinestones, rose, Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder, Stampington stamp, Black Brilliance ink pad, pink color box ink pad, copic pens and sakura glitter pens.
Method: Fold black cardstock in half. Print out black/white paper onto cardstock and attach to cardfront as shown. Stamp out Stampington image onto white cardstock using black brilliance ink pad and then scan it into computer and enlarge image in a graphics program and print it out again onto white cardstock and go around edges with silver pen and then mount it onto pink bazzil cardstock and go around edges of that with pink color box ink pad and attach to cardfront. Color in image using copic markers and Sakura glitter pens. Use flower punch to punch out three flowers and then run through Big Shot using Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder and then curl the edges of the petals up and attach each layer as shown onto cardfront and add rose in the centre. (Doesn't it make a super flower - love this new punch) add rhinestones and you are done.
