A sticky situation!

We have a fabby sketch from Anne-Marie this week at Willow Sketchie Challenge :

There is also the lovely theme of Animal Antics.You can choose either the sketch or theme.If you’re really up for the challenge you could even do both! You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I just had to turn it into a criss-cross card! And then I knew exactly which image and papers I had to go for!The adorable image is from the Winnie Owl digital collection from Willow Designs.She’s been coloured with FlexMarkers and I’ve applied 3D Crystal Lacquer to her eyes,the honey jar and a thin layer to the puddle of honey she’s managed to spill everywhere.Glad to know I’m not the only mucky pup!It doesn’t show too well but I used a clear glitter pen on her eye shadow and the bee’s wings.The papers are a Rasberry Road freebie from a recent issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

Here’s a piccie with the insert removed :

You can see the gloss better on this one as well as a clearer view of the papers.I also opened Winnie up in Word,played with one of the special Artistic Effects and saved her as a PNG so I could add her behind the recipe.I followed the vintage feel of the papers with the lacy punch and die cuts.To embellish I just had to reach for the vintage seam binding and pearls!
