Remember Remember…

…the 5th of November!

At Pear Tree Designs it’s BONFIRE NIGHT.So any card/project related to Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes/November 5th is what’s required.

We have a fabulous sponsor in the form of The Character Cafe.They are offering one lucky winner a $10 Gift Certificate!Please check the challenge blog for full rules on how to be in for a chance to win.You might also like to gain some inspiration from the rest of the DT’s wonderful creations.

 As I didn’t have anything suitable in my stash I suddenly remembered seeing a few craft projects on peoples blogs using images from Elizabeth O. Dulemba,a children’s book author and illustrator.Although they are colouring pages aimed at children the art is so beautifully drawn they lend theirselves to crafty projects too.As with any artist it’s important to respect  copyright.Here is a copy of her Angel Policy .

It’s well worth visiting all areas of this site to see all her books and artwork.They are all amazing.

To make it nice and sparkly I printed the image,having flipped it horizontally first,onto inkjet acetate then applied glitter with a dries clear PVA glue.I mounted it over some glitter card attatching it with brads to add even more sparkle.I simply created the background using embossed and die cut pieces of Core’dinations Gemstones card.
