The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week was to create a scene on your card. Great challenge I thought, it'll really stretch me, and it certainly did. It took me ages to decide what to do, and I'm not that happy with the end result, but I gave it a go. I used a tree stamp from my stash and added a Penny Black hedgie to look as if he's running past the tree on his way home to give his loved one a bunch of flowers. I watercoloured the images with pencils and chalked the grass and sky. I added stardust stickles to the the blossom on the tree and the flowers. I mounted the picture onto goldy brown card and put some photo corners on. Added a little pearly stuff to the centre of the flowers of the photo corners. Keeping up? lol Stamped a sentiment onto pic. Backing papers are vellum with gold dots and a swirly green paper that was a magazine freebie. All mounted on pink bazzill.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
