Photobucket


I colored the image using derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. I then cut the image out using one of the spellbinder's labels dies and sponged the edges.

The sentiments were stamped with chocolate chip ink and cut out using Whimsy's mini ticket die.

The beautiful paper is from a Prima 6x6 paper pack (Madeline collection). I added a punched Martha Stewart fence, some kraft seam binding and a flower topped with a button.


I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:
