Nature’s Little Helper

Originally this card was going to be just an entry for I Love Promarkers where there was this sketch to follow:

But there were several other challenges I wanted to try my hand at too.So I combined a few.

Die Cut Dreams: a Recipe of 3 x different papers,2 x different ribbons,2 x flowers and added extra of using gems.

Cute Card Thursday: Metal Mania

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge: Multifold

The Mabel Lucie Attwell image has been coloured with Promarkers.I used one piece of K & Co paper as the background and adhered two strips together to make the concertina folded flower.I hung a charm from a brad using some home made jump rings.It is secured in place using Glossy Accents.I  laid two different shades of pink ribbon onto the paper and added gems.I thought I would carry on the floral theme with this sentiment from the Hero Arts Anytime Messages set.Everything has been mounted onto Papermania Textured card.

Jolly Day Out!

I saw these Mabel Lucie Attwell stamps in Craft Stamper magazine a while ago and just fell love with them.I bought a bumper pad of K & Co papers from QVC and thought how well this stamp would go with these ones.So I paid an online visit to The Artisic Stamper where they just happened to fall into my basket along with two others from the range.

It has been coloured with Promarkers and highlights have been added with a white gel pen.Tea Dye Distress ink was applied around the edges with a piece of  blending foam.I did the same to the map piece of  backing paper.The number eight block is cut from a sheet from the same pad.All of these are matted onto some Papermania Textured card and all edges have been distressed with the Tim Holtz tool.A length of black waxed cord and a charm that says ‘Laugh’ provide the final touches.

This card was made for my son.Can you guess how old he was?!
