Good evening Everyone,
This is my second post for today, I really want to catch up and I enjoy playing along with different challenges. Today’s card was inspired by the January sketch challenge at Seven Hills Crafts.
When I saw this sketch, I immediately thought of the Picket Fence die from Lawn Fawn. It is my most used die I think, it makes the perfect thin stitched strips.
I started with selecting the patterned paper for my background (Taylored Expressions) and I di cut it with a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. I selected 4 matching cardstock scraps and cut the strips. Then I also cut a light pink circle (Lawn Fawn stitched circles) to hold my image, which is from Pix’s Favourites (Mama Elephant). I coloured the bunny and the trunk with Shinhan alcohol markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies.
I stamped the sentiment (Mama Elephant) on the left side of the circle to leave enough space for the cute bunny. After adhering the elements in place, I added some finishing touches: black glaze pen on the eyes, Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen to the heart and also glossy accent – not only on the heart but on the ribbon too.
I hope you like it, it is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but also as an everyday sweet message to a loved one.
Thanks for your visit and see you soon with another card,
