Gone Fishing...........

Hello everybobs...!  for todays card I have used a much loved LOTV image teamed up with papers from the papermania 'Woodland Folk' range. I have coloured the image using promarkers and have then used distress inks to create the water and background colouring. to add depth i have created a popped up frame using valley and mountain folds on the edge of the frame before securing to the card. Next I have added foilage using the sizzlets branches and leaves dies.

DT card for Stampin for the weekend 'Blue buttons and Bling'



Hello there everyone xx This week Ive uploaded the card Ive made as my first ever Design Team card which is for the 'Stampin for the Weekend challenge blog.  The challenge this fornight is Blue Buttons and Bling ! I have used a Mo'd digital image coloured using promarkers and embellished using metalic pens for the stars detail although its a little hard to see on the picture. the papers are from the papermania capsule collection and I have used the one that looks like ballon skin as i thought it appropriate. I have finished off by using matching buttons and ribbon again from the capsule collection.  If you fancy joining in with the challenge just click on the link below the picture to go straight there x
