I have a fun blog post to share with you today :) The lovely Hazel from Hazel's Paper Designs came up with a great idea to post a little kit of C6 sized goodies to a few blog buddies and see what we all came up with.
Hazel sent this little bundle of joy to me and our good friend, Shona from Twine Around:
It was like receiving an envelope full on sunshine :) The kit included cute stamped images, some cheerful patterned paper, kraft card and twine. I have made two cards to share with you:
First up I die cut the patterned paper and kraft to create the layered border and cut the sweet birds with a heart. I coloured them in with Spectrum Noir pencils and popped the heart up. A bit of the twine at the top of the card with an enamel dot completed the card.
For my second card I watercoloured the girl with Inktense pencils and cut her out with a stitched square. I inked the CASual Friday's bubble label die cut that was in the kit in yellow ink to match the card and popped it behind the image. This was layered up on some kraft card. It looked a bit lost on my card base so I decided to doodle another frame around the edge to go with the girl's striped socks. It adds a quirky touch to the design but I definitely need to practice my doodling :)
I can't wait to see what Haze and Sho came up with - they are both such creative, CAS cardmakers! Check out what they made on their blogs. I have just sent out my kit to them so stay tuned for our next Honey, I Shrunk the Kit creations :)
I will also link up at Less Is More where this week's challenge is 2 or 4 legs and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
