Anyway todays Challenge has been set by my fellow Design Team Member Patricia of "Rubberstamping is my game" please do pop over to see her fabulous blog and stunning work, she has chosen for this particular Challenge "Water" and this is the theme for the fortnight. We are being sponsered by Claire of "Hope Jacare" and Im sure youve seen her gorgeous scrummy digi images.
I'm a SAHM with three young children. I trained in Textile Design at the Glasgw School of Art and I love all things handmade, but especially papercrafts. I love to doodle ... and my doodles are available to purchase as digital images through Stitchy Bear Stamps.
And this is the digi that I chose for my DT card, its called "Haco the Viking" and you know me I have to go for the one with the most to colour, hope you like it.
Ive printed him onto white card then coloured the image with my copic pens, afterwards he was cut out with my Nestabilitie Label No.8 then I drew around the die to create a faux mount. The sentiment is a Scrabble stamp from "Cats Life" which I purchased from CraftyEmmas store, this was also mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card and one of three papers from Kay Miller downloads, the first paper a water scene, on top is a strip of green spotted paper and then red check on top of this, Ive used a Martha Steward border punch along both the edges to try and create a wave look.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle and the sentiment below on the right. To finish of I have put a lighthouse button in the bottom left hand corner.
I do so hope you will now go and visit our Cards for Men Blogspot and see the rest of my fellow Design Team members cards and hopefully this will inspire you to create cards with a water theme.
