I had four goes at making a card for this theme before I was happy. As you know, I'm not the sort of crafter who like to use cute images, so the first two cards I tried turned out nice enough, but they just weren't me. The third one I made I liked, but felt that it didn't really fit the theme. So I went back to the cute images, and came up with a design that is a bit more "me" iyswim! I'll show you the other three in the days to come, but first here's my DT card for June.
I made an A5 landscape card blank from thick brown card, and diecut an aperture in the front to site the Spellbinders tree. The decorative diecuts on the front of the card are coloured by rubbing on some Inka Gold.
"I love hanging around you"
The hedgehog is stamped in Memento and coloured using Promarkers. He's an old Papermania stamp.
"Pan Pastel Parade"
This panel is stuck inside the card to provide a backdrop. It was my first attempt using Panpastels and was fun to do, using lots of different nature stamps with versamark ink and brushing the pastels over the stamped images to colour.
Just for fun, here's a photo of the card before I added my wonky lettering. Diecut letters are great for adding whatever sentiment you like to a card, but as you can see I'm a bit too clumsy with my hands to do a neat job, so what I do is make it good and wonky then it looks like you've done it on purpose lol! Please come and join in with us this month on the challenge blog; I can't wait to see what you've been up to!
