Frou Frou Sneak Peek

We are really excited about this Friday's launch of a brand new range, Frou Frou!  Design Team member Chrissie has a great project and mini-tutorial to share with you today, using a new set called Tipsy.

Here is what Chrissie has to say about this great card:

"I used the main image from the Tipsy set.  I know this image is more of the 40's-flapper style, but I was inspired by Mad Men when I saw this image.   I guess maybe because she was sitting in a glass and someone always seems to have a drink in hand at work or at play there!

To create the cut out of her legs, I first sketched out light lines where I would cut out the image.

I cut around her legs, then used my trimmer to cut along the other lines. I erased what was left when I was done.

Then I placed a clear mask down and used my blending tool to create a simple, but sophisticated background.

I gently went back over the swirls with ink, just so there was no bright white anywhere."
