New Puppy...

Playing with scraps left on my desk again... 
TTT: Top Tip - I keep using the pieces till they are so small I don't freak at throwing them away. I use larger pieces for backgrounds either on the front or for a panel behind the message panel on the inside.  Smaller pieces are great for pennants, layers behind the sentiment, or even as texture pieces... see the long slender piece at the top of the front?  I mounted it on foam tape and layered it in a space that needed filler when the pennants were mounted too low.  Now it looks like the pennants are supported by this "beam".
The background and the pennants are from Basic Grey and the newsprint is a new stamp from Impression Obsession stamped on white scraps.  The pennants are floated on foam tape and attached to Baker's twine.  The focal image, "Bronte's Kisses" is from Mo Manning.  It has been printed on Neenah, colored with Copics, cut out, sculpted and floated on foam tape.

IMAGES:  The focal image is "Bronte's Kisses" from Mo Manning;  "Newsprint" is a new background stamp from Impression Obsession
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the image panel; DP for background and the pennants are from Basic Grey, base CS is from my endless stash.
INKS: The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored with Copics:

  8. Great card and Top Tip too - I also have an aversion to throwing out any piece of paper bigger than a postage stamp!
