It's Sue here today!
I'm trying to catch up with all my blog posts so here is card I made a while ago for a lovely friend of mine.
I have a real soft spot for donkeys! <3 (Be honest - who does n't)???
This card is made with the gorgeous
I used my favourite card for pencils - Bockingford Hot Pressed, coloured this cutie with Faber Castell Polychromos and cut him/her (?) out! (:
To create the background I cut a 10cm x 13cm rectangle of Bockingford card and blended Distress Oxide Inks in Scattered Straw and Worn Lipstick over it. I also splattered it with water and Perfect Pearls to create texture.
I then used the largest Fishtail die to cut a piece another piece of Bockingford and fixed it to the background.
I cut out a fishtail banner die... (Your Next Stamp - discontinued - but any small die would do, you could adapt this bit)!... and stamped the sentiment from
Stamping Bella Mail Chick
in black ink onto it. I fixed the sentiment to the card design as shown, along with the donkey!
