Hi all hope you are all well,
We are all at sixes and sevens here
at the moment.
We are fitting new windows so everything
is a mess.
Fortunately my crafty corner is in the
conservatory which is fine, so
i can escape there for a bit.
It's Papertake weekly time again
and this week we have one of
Dawny's fabulous sketches to follow
which is sponsored this week by
Simon says stamp
So go and check it out
It's my Nephews birthday coming up soon
so i decided to combine the two,
i made him a card using the sketch.
I've used one of the fab images
from Teddy Bo and co.
Isn't he Jolly.
I have coloured him in with promarkers.
I have noticed lately a lot of Kraft card
appearing on cards, and i have
finally got some although it came
in the form of card blanks. I bought
some in 6x6 so i could cut some of it up.
This time i have used it as a blank, doing that
though meant i had to decorate the inside
which i never do, so this was new to me.
As you can see i kept it simple, i noticed
on other blogs when they decorate the inside
they put a faint image of the main image in the
bottom corner, with this being digital
i just printed it off in draft and a bit smaller
which worked a treat.
The papers are from K&Co berry sweet set.
I tinted the green card i had with peeled paint
distress in as my card stock didn't pop out enough
against the papers.
I made the grass by using an icicle die from
Marianne Creatables that i just bought for my
Christmas cards, when i get round to making them.
I turned it upside down and used peeled paint
distress ink to highlight
or is it lowlight as it's darker.lol.
The sentiment stamps are from LOTV.
I also used my Clarity Feather stamp to
go round the edges with peeled paint ink, to give
it a jungle feel.
Just to let you know
Next week is very special for
Papertake it's our Birthday
4 years i believe so
we are going to have a very special challenge,
and lots of chances to win some goodies.
So don't forget to look in and check it out.
Thanks for stopping by today
and hope to see you over at
