Thanks a munch
Ok, so it's a slightly corny sentiment, but I wanted this to be a thank-you card and this is the best I could do, lol. I hope it makes sense to you using "munch" instead of "bunch". I'd definately like to munch some of those cakes!
Since I've been a bit tired of Halloween and autumn themed cards I decided on somthing totally different. It might have been a good idea to start on my Christmascards, but that would be out of charachter for me. Why not saving it until the very last minute instead, lol.
So for today's card I've been colouring one of Samantha Rawling's cuties called cake girl from sweetpea stamps. I got myself these patterned papers a while ago and as soon as the stamp came through my mailbox I've been wanting to use them together.
She is coloured with my promakers and cut out using one of the nestabilities. The edges are "burnt" with walnut stain distress ink. The little tag is a cuttlebug die and the text is written by hand (it shows unfortunately) I like how the smaller squares turned out. I rounded two corners - diagonally. I think it creates a look like they are spritzed out, kind of like whipped cream or even the girl's hat. I also added glitterglue to some of the details on the patterned paper. The whipped cream on the girl's cake got some white liquid pearls.
The challenges I used for this card:
Cute card thursday - sketch
Simon says stamp - thanks
Secret crafter - use a manga image
Thanks for stopping by.
