I got out my ProMarkers out again for this card, choosing an image that I think has very much a “spring” theme to it. I’d like to enter the card into two challenges:
- Crafter’s Companion Monthly Challenge – 22 -SPRING
- Joanna Sheen Monthly Challenge Blog – Spring/Easter
Heres the card:
This is how I made it:
I printed out background Greeen Sprigs Backing Paper by Sue Way onto 250gsm Super Smooth white card. I trimmed this, scored, folded in half and then used a corner rounder punch on the corners on the right hand side. Onto this I put a strip of textured gold card cut with a wavy edged cutter down the centre. I prepared a mat of the same card-stock as the base card, again rounding the corners with the same punch, and distressed the edges using the green end of a Waterfall Big and Juicy ink pad. I printed out two copies of digi stamp Daffy Bunny Doodles Digital Stamp by Lee Jacobs onto the same type of card, making each a little smaller than A5 size. I coloured in all of one of the images using my ProMarkers and cut it out around the outside outline. The second image I only coloured in some of the daffodil, and cut it out as a layering element. I gave my coloured in “Daffy Bunny” some dimension before sticking in place using glue gel, and used the same glue to stick on the second layer of the flower.
With grass in fields becoming a lusher colour of green, the daffodils in full bloom in our garden, and more rabbits being seen out in farmers fields and on the lanes in our area, I think that spring must definitely be here, so this card seemed apt for the theme.
I hope you like it.
