A spot of thinking


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.

Isn’t Just Thinking by Crafty Sentiments Designs adorable?I’ve coloured her up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers along with white gel pen highlights then fussy cut her.I die cut a full stitched rectangle then attached it to a card base the same size.Two pieces of patterned paper were cut with the next size down die before the tops were torn.I added some die cut grass at the bottom to ground her.This is in two strips overlapped as one piece wasn’t quite long enough.Sillicone glue gives it dimension.I popped a little bird in the there too,inked a little to define him.I die cut another stitched rectangle and wrote the sentiment on in white gel pen.Please excuse my terrible handwriting :S I had intended to add a printed version from a CD-rom that has elements to match the papers but when sized it to fit on the card the wording wasn’t that clear.But I do like the white pen on this paler type of kraft card.For the final touch I added a scattering of sequins 🙂
