Guitaring Into Shape!

csdt14thapril 001

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s the sweet Let’s Play Music by Crafty Sentiments Designs all coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I’d seen these shaped cards for a while in my local craft warehouse and thought about getting them several times.Then the last time I was in there they were only £1.99 a pack!So into my basket they fell…just like that!Also treated myself to these pretty papers…and then those rather lovely cloud dies drifted off the shelf too 😉 I cut an aperture in the centre of the card base then added the cloud paper behind on foam tape for extra dimension.The butterfly paper was laid on top with a punched border,which I cut in half,peeking out from the edges.A full border was threaded with ribbon and placed across so that once fussy cut she could perch on it.I die cut the swirly cloud then cut the dotted frame one from some hammer card and also backed it with the middle from that to give more definition.The stamp,a magazine freebie,fitted the space at the top perfectly.Some little pearl flowers and more of the same ribbon have been added to finish the card off.My DD1 bought herself a guitar just after her last birthday so I thought this would be good for her next one.Roll on October….lol
