Criss Cross Card

I have tried a new "paper" I bought at TreL in Bodø a while ago. It's called Digi-Decal Rub-Ons, and is meant to print your own Rub-ons onto, the instuction inside the pack also said you could "Draw, Doodle, Rubber Stamp (...)", so I had to try that - and noticed that the stampimages were "mirrored" - COOL, what???
Cool, maybe, but very difficult to colour, at least with ProMarkers, as the Rub-On left a very, very shiny surface over the image. But I sooo wanted to make a card with the same image used "two ways", that I used an entire evening to colour the image - LOL
(I hope I haven't broken any rules stamping to this kind of paper to mirror the image. If I have, I hope someone will let me know, so I don't do it again...)
To make the inlaycard I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday. For that I used the ordinary stamped Tilda, but coloured her in the same colours as the other one.
I've made Criss Cross Cards once or twice before, but this kind of card never seem to come to my mind in everyday cardmaking, so the challenge from TOMIC was a perfect reminder of these cards - I like cards where there's plenty of space to decorate :)

The next picture show the inside of the criss cross and the backside of the inlaycard:

Here's the inlaycard is put halfway into the criss cross card:

  6. I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i’m satisfied to show that I have a very just right uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed. I so much no doubt will make certain to don’t fail to remember this site and give it a look on {a constant basis|regularly}.
