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!

Green and Heather Penny Black Water Lily Skiing

This week I decided to have a go at the Secret Crafter blog challenge #51. The theme this week is Animal Antics.

I decided to use an image kindly donated by Donna/Princesskarra over on docrafts in an image swap.

The Penny Black Water Lily Skiing image was watercoloured using the Whispers Brushstroke markers and the butterfly and water lily was highlighted using Crayola Baby Pink pearlescent glitter glue.

The image was then cut out using one of the standard circle Nestabilities dies and the 'out of the box' technique. This was then matted onto heather cardstock from the DCWV Brights Mat Stack.

A square of olive green Brushstroke paper from the Papermania Oriental Spice paper pad was matted onto the heather cardstock, and a strip of the plum Brushstroke paper from the same paper pad was matted onto a strip of the heather card was matted onto the green panel with the image panel matted over the top.

The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, from the Papermania Clare Curd Sentiments stamp set, was stamped on the green panel using ColorBox Dark Moss fluid chalk ink. This was traced over with the pink glitter glue.

Papermania white adhesive pearls were added to the plum paper strip.

The inside of the card was only minimally decorated using the plum Brushstroke paper, and the 'Happy Birthday' stamp with the ColorBox Dark Moss fluid chalk ink.
