Nature’s Beauty

At Digi Doodle Shop’s Best we have the theme of Nature this week. There’s the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend  at Digi Doodle Shop!!To play along hop on over to the challenge blog for full details and take a look at the beautiful inspiration by the DT.

For my card I’ve used Mother Deer and Fawn .Such a tender moment.They’re printed onto kraft card and have been coloured with water colour pencils.I’ve never tried this before and was a little worried what would happen.Apart from the card buckling a little there weren’t any other problems.It didn’t matter anyway as it laid flat once stuck down.The printer ink didn’t even though this was freshly printed.I played with my new toy,the Grand Calibur,again creating the base using Grand Nestabilities Labels 4.I used Nestabilities Labels 1 to cut out the image and the card it’s mounted onto.I didn’t want to cover the patterned paper up too much as this is from my coverted pack of Persimmon Papers by Papermania.I also thought it would tie in with the other nesties shape.I cut the tab using Labels 1,stamped the greeting then trimmed it down.I added a length of grossgrain ribbon and some die cut flowers,with threaded button centres and leaves to finish.

Image : Mother Deer and Fawn from Digi Doodle Shop
