Thanks so much to Pammie’s Inky Pinky Challenge for selecting my card in the Top 3 catagory!! I really appreciate your wonderful support!
Hello and welcome
Today I’m back with a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. Kath is the hostess for this fortnight’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: All About Occasions.
My card features a stamp from the Australian Company – Paper Rose – Snugglepot & Cuddlepie Little Things Stamp Set. (Snugglepot and Cuddlepie are characters from a well known Australian story written and illustrated by May Gibbs, first published in 1917.) The illustrations are wonderful featuring the Australian bush!
I started by stamping the image and watercolouring in Distress Inks. The panel was trimmed down to fit on the kraft cardstock Postage Stamp Frame die from Simply Dies (from an Australina company Catchy Crafts), using raised tape.
This was layered up on a green card and then onto the ochre card front.
A stitched circle using Mama Elephant – Pizazz Pieces die set was stamped with a Kaisercraft stamp.
This was then layered up on gum leaves die cuts by Paper Rose and watercoloured in the sage greens of the Aussie bush. The gumnuts were added to the sentiment circle.
Finally, the sentiment is from PB – Heartfelt Thanks stamp set.
I hope you like my card. A friend asked me to make a birthday card for her daughter over in London as she hasn’t been able to come home for so long. I hope it reminded her of Australia.
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.
Stay safe in these difficult times and have a good day
