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.

Hi Pascale, your card is brilliant and will bring a huge smile to a child's face. I'm really loving all the fabric additions to your cards - very inspiring.

Such a lot of work has gone into your card Pascale, it looks amazing!

It’s bright, cheery and as you say has a lot going on, so I’m sure that Ethan will be thrilled with it when it arrives.

This last month has just flown by and it’s been great having you join the team for a while. Thanks for all your beautiful work and don’t forget to come back and join in, will you?
