Spots and Stripes

I made this card yesterday but I've just managed to get a reasonable photograph of it today.  The card blank is a large square from Craft UK and the backing papers are from First Edition paper pad Desert Blooms. The red card is by Ross Paper. I used my Texting Josh image that I won on the Ladybug Crafts blog. I coloured Josh with Promarkers before cutting in to a rectangle and matting on to a red rectangle. The black mobile is cut, from Mirri board, with a Spellbinders die. I used a red button from Create and Craft and tied it with baker's twine from Creative Expresssions via Joanna Sheen. 

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
 Ladybug Crafts - Spots and Stripes
Always Crafting - Anything Goes
Paper Makeup Stamps - For the Boys
Karens Doodles Challenge - Make it for a male

#106 - Anything Goes

My card this week is using the digital images of the Flower Girl set from April, over at Stitchybear Digital Stamps. The theme at One Stitch of a Time is 'Anything Goes'.

I decided to make an easel card with the  picnic table and flower pot image. I used a sheet of tan card to shape the easel and the 'stop' strip. I coloured the image with Promarkers and added a red satin heart, from Create and Craft, to the heart on the pot. I filled the centre of the heart with red glitter. After I cut the image in to a rectangle I added Distress Ink to the edges. Three pieces of Card Candi are at each side of the image. The paper is from a First Edition pad, Hideaway. The 'stop' is made with the tan card and then a piece of orange ribbon is centred across it. The large image of the flower is also coloured with Promarkers and then I cut it out, very carefully, and centred it on the base. Some Diamond Dust is at the centre of the flower.

Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen who is giving a £10 voucher to spend at her online store. To win this prize you MUST use a Stitchybear image.
