Pippi Longsocks (and froggie friend!)
I`d like to enter this card into this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge which is "Two`s Company"
I`ve made this card for no other reason than I wanted to play with my new stamp, I saw this image on a friends blog recently and fell in love with it. She`s called Pippi longsocks and she`s from the Sugar Nellie range at Funky Kits.
I`ve used a friend sentiment as I have loads of crafty friends so I`m sure one of them will be the recipient of this in the near future!
I`ve coloured her with distress markers this time, they are a bit brighter than the inks and I`m just getting to grips with them, this is the first time I`ve coloured an entire image just with markers and I`m fairly happy with the results. I`ve added stickles - diamond to her wings, the papers are Bo Bunny double dot and the reverse side of the paper I used in my last posted card which I think is Bo Bunny also. The die cuts are Cheery Lynn mini fanciful flourish available at Sir Stampalot. The punch is SU scallop dot border and the sentiment is LOTV.
I`ve got a soft spot for froggies and I loved this little fella leaning on her shoe!
I had a hard time with this bow, I only had a scrap of this ribbon left but it matched the colours so perfectly I wanted to use it so I pieced the two pieces at the sides to look like it runs all the way along and I had to piece the bow together from several different bits, thank God for my hot glue gun that`s all I can say, I spent longer faffing around with the bow than I did making the whole card !! The things we do for our craft !!
I`m off now for a cuppa, bye for now and happy crafting xx
