Had a go at Kim's new Challenge over at Cuddly Buddly. Not sure if I'm happy with the result - the pens didn't seem to want to blend on the cardstock I used and has turned out patchy. Anyway, here it is:
Second attempt at this in the end! First one had an Edwin but there was something missing and couldn't work it out. As a result, I started again and this was the result. Tinker and Co backing papers from cupcake set. Prefer this one and no nestabilities this time!!!
My cousin will be 4 this week - loves building, JCB's etc so used Cuddly Buddly Builder Teddy. He is 3D'd using foam pads and then the hat is layered again - doesn't show up in the pic though. Layered it onto nestie circles and also used them to make the tag. I have used the Cuddly Buddly Patchwork Green set so much I bought the blue set today.
No blog updates lately as I have been away enjoying a salsa weekender in Blackpool. Took over Pontins for an entire weekend - plenty of eating, drinking and dance lessons (including Bollywood and Bhangra!!!)
Made this 18th birthday card using a Dolly Mama stamp, watercoloured it then highlighted it with pens. I started to cut it out as a square ready to mount it but it went wrong so I played on this and made an abstract shape which I think ended up looking better anyway.
Unfortunately, I can’t take the credit for this one but wanted to share it and show it off – I received it in a swap from a friend of mine. This is probably my favourite ATC as it is so personal and a lot of thought went into it as it combines two of my favourite things – Roald Dahl and Chocolate. I always try to fit Dahl’s work into my schemes of work and my consumption of chocolate is well known! It even had a gift attached – a Roald Dahl badge!!!
This is my effort for the Tilda and Friends ATC challenge. The theme was check and so paper pieced Tilda using Cuddly Buddly papers and put her on a Cuddly Buddly hay bale. Background is chalked on linen card.
These Vintage look images were a'happy accident'. After chalking up the wrong size of card and having it hanging around for a while, I decided to stamp fishing Edwin onto it. Then used a brown Whispers Pen and blender to colour and shade them in. Wings are stickled with the Frosted Lace stickles.
Here goes posting my first card. Made this card using downloads from Kay Miller (Jungle Boogie) printed onto linen card. I chalked the edges of backing papers and Nestabilities Ovals. Finished off with a Tilda (which wasn't coloured in well but she was hanging around waiting to be used on something - she might be replaced!!!)
