Card Challenge

Sorry its been a while but not enough hours in the day as usual. Decided tonight to take half an hour out and do a long over due post - Scrapbook Sisters latest challenge.

This weeks theme is Mothers Day or for Someone special. I did cheat a bit this week as I have used the birthday card I made for Karen at Scrapbook Sisters. It was her birthday yesterday.

cards 075The beautiful  image is a stamp I have had for a few years that was hidden away until I re-discovered it at the weekend. I bet I’m not the only one who finds things that they’ve long forgotten about.

She is coloured with copics. I used a nestabilities oval die cutting into the legs part of the image so she is standing outside of the oval.


cards 078

The organza ribbon was coloured with the red copic and heated with the heat gun until it starts to shrivel up. Be careful if you try this  as it is best done with a heat gun with a slow speed- 2 speed gun on the lowest setting, otherwise it will burn and melt. I then cut some slits in the card and threaded the ribbon through to create a shawl.

cards 081The background paper is from a K&Co paper stack. The roses were cut from the same paper and moulded to give a 3D effect and attached with silicone. Hope you like it. If you haven't entered the challenge yet have a go.

A bit more prep now for my next card class in a couple of weeks time ‘one for the boys’. Hopefully these cards should help make life a little easier when making for the male species.

Thanks for stopping by.
