A Real Funky Card for Kimmi

Todays card has been created from Kimmi's downloads Patchwork Cow, Donkey and Dog, Ive printed the Cow and Dog this time and coloured them with my copic pens after which I cut them out completely.

Ive created a base card with a piece of A3 card cut into a 8"x 8" inch card, and for the first layer I have used a piece of pink pearlescent card, now these papers are from the cd that comes with The Complete Cardmaking Magazine, I had a job tracking down this mag, but found this one in WHSmiths in Chipping Norton on Saturday, the cd has a couple of sets of papers. I rather like this set its really funky and bright and thought it would really give it some go man go, (sorry about that) anyway Ive used four different patterns and for the first one Ive used a rather large flower one, and for the second layer Ive used a piece of yellow pearlescent card and a yellow honeycomb paper. For the third and forth layers Ive used two more papers one a circle pattern and the other a small version of the first flower paper, these were stuck to pink and yellow mounts and arrange opposite each other on the base card.

On to these two mounts I have stuck my coloured images with some silcone glue, I did a bit of moulding before sticking them on. The greeting is another of my stamps which has also been layered up onto two different pieces of the same card and stuck with some foam to the bottom of the card. The final thing Ive done is stuck a few buttons at the top on the right.

I hope it doesnt cause any visual disturbances as it is rather funky.

Brilliant card Shirley. I love Patty the Cow in Pink! She looks adoarable. Little Patch looks sweet too, and I think you've done a fab job on them. The freebie papers on the disc are great. Really bright and beautiful. They'd go really well with any little Tildas with flowers thats for sure!

Thanks for letting me know you'd used them on a card. I would have come to you eventually, but its so nice of you to let me know so I could come over quick stat!

Shirley fantastic card, I love the images, wish more and more everyday that I had a printer. I will give you a laugh....I have run out off 8x8 cards, that I bought at a recent craft fair, and the next craft fair is not until October here in Scotland, so I thought, off getting A3 card to make my own.....I have not been out to get any yet, as our car is sick...needing a new engine, but should get it back this week sometime...Love the papers you have used also Shirley. Hugs Avril xx

Hi Shirley. I hope you dont mind, but I've put a link on my shop blog to this page :D Just to show everyone what you can do with the Digis. If you'd like me to remove the link, let me know.
