This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Brown and Blue Two Today Dandelion

I decided to enter the Pollycraft Blog Challenge #23 this week, and the theme this week is 'Furry Friends'. I decided to use one of the lovely Dandelion stamps from the Daisy and Dandelion stamp set.

The card is for a little two-year-old boy, the son of a friend of mine.

I started by stamping the Dandelion image onto cream cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black and Vintage Sepia archival pigment inks, giving the image a mottled effect. The image was then watercoloured using Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap distress ink.

The edges of the image panel were then distressed using the Tim Holtz Faded Jeans distress ink, and matted onto brown cardstock.

The number '2' was stamped using the Faded Jeans ink and a foam stamp from the Papermania Large Sheet Numbers stamp set. The number was outlined using the fine end of a brown Whispers Brushstroke marker.

The word 'today' was also stamped onto cream card using the Faded Jeans ink and a Studio G mini alphabet stamp set. The two panels were then distressed around the edges using the Faded Jeans ink. Both were then matted onto brown cardstock and a length of pale blue fibre was tied between both of the panels to suggest movement.

The card blank was covered using the blue mesh paper from the Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch paper pad, first distressed with the Faded Jeans ink. A strip of the brown polka dot paper, also from the Picnic Patch paper pad, was distressed with the Frayed Burlap ink and then matted onto the brown cardstock, was attached across the blue paper and the image panels adhered on top using 3D foam pads.



Hi Kathleen
Your card is gorgeous,
Hugs Dianne xx
