I was having trouble trying to decide what to do for hubby's birthday card this year so decided on a bit of a 'blast from the past'. He always loved cards I made using stampscape stamps but there's only so many I can make him really and I left off them for a few years, so this year I decided to dust them off again and create this scene with it's promise of spring. Having stamped my scene out and coloured it with Derwent inktense pencils, I decided to take my finished picture into Craft Artist to create the card layout. I created the 'embossed' butterflies and text in CAP2 and the foliage comes from several kits - I decided to use foliage with the card being for a man. You can't see it very clearly in this picture but I've also used the scene as part of the backing paper for the base part of the easel card and there is a verse hidden under the upright.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
- Love to Create - Anything Goes
- TTCRD - Anything Goes
- Crafty Creations - Happy Birthday
- 4 Crafty Chicks - Trees
- OSAAT - For A Boy
- Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
- Craft a Scene - Let it be spring.
Thank you for dropping by today and I hope you're getting a hint that spring might be on it's way where you are.
