Summer Swap

Tuesday, 20 September 2011

Over on the MAC forum we had a wee swap set up for Summer.  Now it was supposed to have happened in August, when it was supposed to be summer, but sometimes things don't go like they're supposed to!  Mine were a bit late due to getting stuff ready for the 2 weddings, but I got them finished eventually and they've all been recieved now so time to blog it!

I made 7 in total, all the same (and I only made a mistake on one where I stuck the topper on sideways!  Aww well, it just opens at the bottom, rather than the side! lol)

And here it is


The image is of course a LOTV as is the sentiment.  I coloured the image with Copics and prisma pencils and I did the sky with distress ink.


The papers are from Pink Petticoat, they're called "One in a melon".  I reduced the size of the flowery paper to a little smaller than A5 so I could get more of the gorgeous detail on the card as I lost most of it when I printed the page A4 and cut it down.  The white picket fence is a Doo Hickey and I added some swarovski's.  You can't see it in the picture but I glittered the writting on the sentiment with a clear stardust pen.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges;
