Well, the sun is shining on a bright blue sky here this morning - at long last!! I managed to do a couple more challenge cards and I decided to pull out a long neglected favourite stamp of mine this ever so cute Starlight, Starbright bunny from Stamps Happen. I used the sketch over on Mojo Monday. I coloured with my Distress Inks and Tombow markers. I'm not particularly happy with the way the sentiment came out - it's actually horizontal on 2 lines so I inked and stamped a couple of words at a time to make in fit on that size panel. A bit labour intensive and it was hard to get it looking even, but ah well, it'll have to do! I think it's a perfect sentiment for the card. I'm putting an edit in here - I keep looking at the card and those dewdrops have come out in the photo looking really red - they are not IRL - they match the pink hues of the card really nicely!!!
This second card I did for the Cupcake Craft challenges - folds. You had to create a card/project with at least 2 folds in it. I made this - I'm not even sure what you would call this card - a flower/petal card? I used a sweet summer Tilda for this card and coloured her with my copics. For the 'flaps' I used a circle punch which I had trimmed in half then adhered it and doodled around the edges. Tilda is glued to a length of satin ribbon which slips over the card. The inside I took a square of violet paper and used up a piece of scrap paper where I adhered some punches leaves and a flower. The sentiment and words are from The Stamp Barn. The sentiment reads "A true friend warms you by her presence, trusts you with her secrets and remembers you in her prayers".
Thanks for your visit today - I hope you like what I posted! My boys are getting VERY excited and counting down the sleeps 'til the Easter Bunny comes - my youngest boy is such a chocaholic he can barely contain his excitement!! Have a great day all!
