Not Just Cards Blog Challenge project (March 2018)

Hiya peeps,

My first sentence must be an apology for not posting since October last year, but Ive been in & out of hospital since just after my last post. Im not going to bore you with all the details, but I will say that my infected leg ulcers are so much better and I am feeling so much better than I have been for a long time.

Down to the latest challenge from Not Just Cards, my project is a version of the popup cards that are so popular.. I used a pre coloured image of a girl with present, (image copyright to PolkaDoodles). The Flowers I glued on using Pinflair glue gel, both, along with the blue backing paper are from my own stock. The cream card that I used for the actual card is from a British company called Papermill Direct.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

DT post for Rick St Dennis

Its time today for a new challenge over at

Rick St Dennis Challenge blog #5

where the theme is

"Anything Goes or Clowning Around (use a clown image)"

I used an image called Zombie Clown

to make a wall hanging so my daughter could use it in her bedroom

I first printed the digi on to card instead of my usual paper and

its the texture of that which gives the clown its unusual look.

It was also that I used watercolour pencils to colour him

The outer part of the mdf frame I used an embellishment mousse

from the Nuvo collection by Tonic Studios.  The mousse

I used is a colour called Peony Pink using a natural sponge to

create the rough application.

Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge for July 2017

My Make for the Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge for July 2017

I die cut the card base using a die from a Spellbinders set,
making sure that the die didnt slip so I had a fold. I also die cut two of
the smaller dies from the same set so I had a colour between the two white
cards, this was so the alternative colour would compliment 
the strawberry printed ribbon & bow..  
I had coloured the cute image using my tinned set of watercolour pencils
which I think gives the image a soft edge that I prefer.
