For the new challenge at Creative Moments the theme is flags. This week, no flag is more appropriate than the Union flag. Such tragedy has hit the United Kingdom over the last two months that our union must be celebrated. I am praying for all those involved and who live in the area and send condolences to all those bereaved or still searching for loved ones.
My card is almost too cheerful for a post such as this, but that is the nature of the digistamp from Bugaboo.
I coloured the sweet fairy and her friends using Promarkers and embellished with some wooden lasercut toadstools, which are also coloured. The sentiment was typed onto the page before printing – all ready for Mothering Sunday, next weekend. The wings were printed separately to allow me to shape and decoupage them for dimension.
This week’s challenge at Creative Moments is make it feminine. I have used elements from Decosse’s Dynamite Doodles‘ Floral Cats range. The digital papers and topper were layered up using Serif Craft Artist, then the cat topper was printed a couple more times to cut out and decoupage .
The image used for today’s card is called Ratty and puts me in mind of the Terry Pratchett Character “Death of Rats”. Now I know this birthday card will not be to everyone’s tastes but this card is for my sister. She is a Discworld fanatic and will be tickled with this card.
The backing paper is from a Gorjuss collection and the sentiment from a Forever Friends black and Gold kit. The digistamp is available here.
