"Who Ate all the Strawberry Jam"?????


Todays card is another of Julies images by Penny Black, this one is gorgeous I think these mice are really cheeky, and of course the one in the spoon has obviously been over doing it.

Anyway Ive again coloured the image with my Karisma pencils then cut it out and gone around the edge with my metallic pen, then Ive mounted it onto a piece of salmon pearlescent card.

The base card is an 8"x 8" white card, and onto this I have put a layer of the salmon coloured card, and Ive then used two papers this time from a magazine, which I have scanned into my computer and used My Craft Studio program to enlarge them to fit the card. The second layer is of pearlescent card has been put through my cuttlebug machine with one of my embossing folders, on top of this is the second sheet of patterned paper and this has been also mounted onto the salmon coloured card.

I have then mounted the stamped image on top of them, and used my computer to create the greetings, after printing it out onto photo paper, Ive used my rotatrim to cut it down and then mounted this onto a further piece of the salmon card. Ive used some foam to attach it to the base card.

Ive then created the flowers with the new Prima ones, Ive first punched out some leaves stuck them to the card with silicone glue, then stuck a Hydrangea petal in the middle and on top of this the new flowers, Ive also hung a strawberry charm from the bottom flower.
