I was thrilled when my card was selected for an Honourable Addict at Challenge #372 – Make Your Mark. Thanks so much. I really appreciate it!
Hello and welcome
Wishing you and your family a wonderful 2020!
Living here in Australia, and watching all the reports on the terrible bushfires sweeping across much for the country, I felt I’d like to make an Aussie inspired card this week.
Looking through my stamps, I found this cute little Koala – an AI unmounted Stamp, I had received as a Freebie, but had never used!
I started by stamping it 3 times on water colour paper and did some no-line colouring using Tombow markers, before fussy cutting.
I cut a heart from a scrap of old DP and from some vellum. These were added to the tall card front and the koalas were arranged to look as though they were resting on the shape.
After stamping, colouring and fussy cutting Pink Fresh Eucalyptus Fantasy leaves, they were added behind the koalas resting on the heart.
The CUTplorations XOXO die was die cut 3 times and stacked with a black on top and attached to the heart.
The cute little MFT – Die-Namics – Tic Tac Toe dies gave me more ‘x’ and ‘o”s. I arranged them to look as though the koalas were throwing and catching them! I hadn’t used these before, either.
The sentiment from Mama Elephant – Occasional Lables was added to finish the card.
Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.
I look forward to seeing what you create this week!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I love to read your comments.
