... yesterday I posted a card that I'd made for the One Stop Craft Challenge 113 - which was to make a card for a child, and I told you that I'd actually made two cards. But I was a tease, and kept one back for today!! This card was also made using the "Help for Katie" stamp set that is available on Jak Heath's blog - helping to raise funds for Katie and her family.
In the stamp set there are lots of super images, but I feel in love with this whale - designed by Shawn - Studio 313 - it's so cute and has lots of greetings to go with it. I printed it off and cut it out with my trusty Spellbinders die and coloured with promarkers. I decided to make the card base the sea - so I coloured it with my distress inks, added some seaweed, an old ship wheel, some fish and mounted the coloured whale image onto some blue fabric (free with a sewing magazine). I added some faux stitching in green onto the fabric (sewing machine still not out of moth balls yet!). I added the birthday greeting - using foam pads for a little dimension.
Stamps: Jak Heath - Help for Katie set (digi-images from lots of designers); Waltzingmouse Stamps - Half Pint Heroes; See D's - Boys Toys; Stampin' Up! - the ship wheel - don't know the name of the set
Inks: Distress - Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China; Memento - Cottage Ivy, Pear Tart, Rich Cocoa, Pottered Clay, Antique Linen
Promarkers: Cool Grey 1, 2, 3; Blush, Meadow Green, Bright Green
Spellbinders: Labels 9 die #5 and #6; Big Scalloped Ovals (S4-251) - die #2
That's all for now. Lots to do today - which should keep me out of mischief!! Do drop by again later this evening.
