I would like to show you a card that was made for the midway reminder
post over at Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog., to use 3 different ribbons.
This is a card using a pre-coloured topper that I found in my stash,
and is created by Helz Cuppleditch whom I adore as her work is quite
varied but still cute. I topped the cute dog, called Pepper, on a die cut piece of Papermania 6x6 paper using a Spellbinders die. I used a piece
of A4 linen effect card from Papermill Direct in Cumbria as their
standard is very high & such an excellent choice of colours, weights
and smooth & embossing of such cardstock.
I chose 3 different shades of blue for the background topper on
a watercolour effect flower filled backing paper from
Making Cards magazine. Using them all together makes
such a difference to the whole effect. The theme of the
Challenge this month is to use 3 different types/colours/designs
of ribbon and thats what I have done on this beautiful card. I first
used the Patchwork Rose Ribbons - Happy Birthday, cutting it to
form 2 different sized banners "falling down the card".
stamp priced at just £2.50 which in todays prices is quite reasonable.
I found a ready made card in my stash and knew that it would do perfectly.
I covered that card with a free backing paper in a lovely shade of blue with a small row of flowers along the bottom of the page, trimming round as close
to the edge of the card base as I could. I then added 2 gorgeous paper
doilies from papermania in a soft dusky pink & soft beige/light tan.
After colouring the Gypsy Flower in using my Harmony alco marker pens, and a touch of Sakura Glitter pens on some parts of her hair & face.
she was glued flat on to the doilies. I added some small sized faux gems to the top & bottom of the doilies and then added some gorgeous silky white lace from my own stash at matching odd angles on the card to finish off the card.
I dont believe the image requires a sentiment as it could be used for anything
including a notelet, get well, birthday, thinking of you or sorry to name a few.
I hope you like the card as much as I do.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
Just a quick post for you to get me back into blogging after being m.i.a. for a couple of weeks due to a really bad chest infection. Im only just getting my strength back up to normal after the episode of coughing so much that it hurt!!
We also have a DT call going on which, to my thinking is that we only need one more member but I suppose Carol (our beloved team leader) might choose more. Get your applications in asap and have some fun with us while being rewarded.
The image that I was very kindly supplied with to use is from SLS Lines & is called Whimsical Pirate and a skull treasure island map that I downloaded from Google search but only for images that allow the picture to be reused (due to copyright issues);
He sort of reminds me of Captain Pugwash from the TV series that I used to watch in the 1970's (yes I was at high school but it was on tv when I got home from school & it as so funny).
(Captain Pugwash is a fictional pirate in a series of British children's comic strips and books created by John Ryan. The character's adventures were adapted into a TV series, using cardboard cut-outs filmed in live-action (the first series was performed and broadcast live), also called Captain Pugwash, first shown on the BBC in 1957, a later colour series, first shown in 1974–75, and a traditional animation series, The Adventures of Captain Pugwash, first aired in 1998)
I am entering this card into the following challenge(s)
SLS Lines Challenge theme is: Inspired by a movie/book/song (Captain Pugwash on tv & made into children's books with a theme song to the programme too).
