September Challenge-Anything Goes
This months challenge at Creatalicious means that we can go for it any way we wish. As I have a birthday card owing I decided that I would make that and combine the challenge at the same time. Apart from the base card everything else was grabbed from scraps. I've made an easel card with a difference-by combining it with a step card. I've had the idea in mind for some time but hadn't tried it out yet. The first step has layers of grass and a row of pansies (Martha Stewart border punches) with the stamped image in between. Tilda is coloured with Copics and I've used dimensional magic on the ladybird. The second step has more grass and a picket fence (Magnolia die) with roses twined onto it. The easel part has more grass layered over the background paper and tree branches (Stampin Up Punch) from card scraps. The butterflies were fussy cut from the reverse side of the paper. The label is from Stampin Up Four Frames set and I have used the matching Punch. I've coloured the roses with Copics to match the colours on the front.
