Good Morning Ladies, the sun is out but by gum its cold here in Gloucestershire and the birds didnt half give me a look of disgust (I was looking out of the window) when they went to get some water from their dish this morning it was frozen solid, anyway I sent hubby out to sort it out and to give them some more seed, so Im hoping theyve now forgiven me.
Todays card has been created for this weeks Kennys Challenge "Sparkle and Spots" and Ive used this image "Bodacious Bev" I wonder who this been named after I can guess carnt you? anyway I tried like mad to combine the digis but didnt have much luck so in the end I printed both sheets and cut them out and then with a bit of manipulation managed to get the image to sit on the parcel and popped her hat on top, with a bit of glue and a knife. I then coloured her with my copic pens, and cut her out with a mega Rectangle die from Nestabilities. Ive used a large scalloped one for the mount, the sentiment is one of the Justright stamps this was also mounted on to a circle scalloped mount.
The base card isa 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of green card and one of three fabulous papers again from my DT leader Donna of Bearlymine Designs (Dont forget Donna as a Sale on her website at the moment shes offering 15% off) this one is called "Christmas Frolics"
and this set has quite a few designs with spots on which Ive used for the base layer a green and white, the second paper is red background with a sentiment all over it, the third and last paper is a swirl pattern with sentiments with both of these have been cut into strips and punched with a hole punch and layered on the base layer and then across the join Ive stuck a light green and red spotted ribbon down the card.
On top of this I have mounted the stamped image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray with three poinsettas with holly leaves and berrys this was then arranged down the left handside and stuck to the card with silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
