The challenge this week at Craft Your Passion is Hexagons.We have the fabulous Simon Says Stamp,The Paper Shelter and Stamp Fairy as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!
For my card I’ve used Cockatoo Rules! from The Paper Shelter and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers.I found an old quilting template amongst my Mum’s old sewing stuff (that I inherited) and cut different patterns from one of my fave collections.So favourite are they that I try not to use them!This card will be for my son’s birthday so they’ll be staying within my house at least!!:D I created a patchwork effect background with them.The embossing folder I’d been umming and ahhhing about for a while but knowing I had to make something for this challenge it quickly became a must-have!I used a paper photo anchor and bracket for the same paper collection.I pierced a hole in the photo anchor and added a brad.The ‘Go’ sign is from a bag iron on patches my SIL gave me.I stuck it onto the backing piece of card using ultra adhesive tape.Yeah,I know it’s really an octagon but it went well with the image ,I thought 😉
