My final Guest DT for Daring cardmakers :(
Hello I will be on my way to Butlins right now so I have scheduled this post. I hope you all had a good week. This is my final Guest DT for Daring Cardmakers . I have really enjoyed my stay. Of course I will continue to enter the challenges each week as they are so unique. I am so glad I got to participate in this one though. This week the dare is set by Sue and it is to make a childrens card. A special childrens card to be sent to a child through Post Pals . If you have not heard of post pals please pop over to there site it is a very worthy cause.
I made this scene card using my crafters companion, cute companion summer stories outside set of stamps. I have used no less than ten stamps on this card. I did not mask ,cor can you imagine that. I stamped and cut out. I coloured with a mixture of copic pens, promarkers and watercolour pencils.
I made the windbreaker from cocktail sticks some linen and then stamped the image on randomly and coloured with fabric pens. I added pearls and dewdrops to the shells to give more texture. These cards are often used to distract children whilst they have treatments or medication so I thought that it would be great to have a lot going on to distract them. Texture is lovely on a card especially if you are tactile which children often are.
