I hope you are all ready to join in with the excellent sketch we have for you today over at
Everybody Art Challenge.
Over the past week I have been working on a special gift book card for a member of my team at work who will be going on maternity leave at the end of this week.
Here is the front of the card using the sketch.
Here is a side view of the layers and what is supposed to be pages of a book
Finally, the gift inside where two sleep suits can be found. The mother to be doesn't know whether its a boy or girl hence the rainbow of colours.
There is so much going on, on the front of the card I've kept the inside embellishment free to give plenty of space for a personal sentiment.
Base - Lemon Bazzill card
Papers - Freebie from Papercraft Essentials Magazine - Sweet Wishes paper
I have distressed inked and sewn around the edge of the papers and used faux stitching around the circle
Punch and Dies- Martha Stewart daisy punch and leaf punch, Nellie Snellen multi frame
Image - Teddy Bea no.84 (new digital stamp)
Medium - Copics and Prisma Pencils
(my desk is so messy I can't find the paper where I recorded the pen colours)
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley & computer generated for Mum to be
Embellishments - Lace, ribbon, Prima flowers, roses, hat pins, beads, swirl gems
Finishing touches - Platinum Stickles glue, Tim Holtz antique linen and walnut distress ink.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
My name is Jenny and I live in Oxfordshire. I am addicted to crafting and craft shopping and partake of this when not working full time. I mainly dabble in card making and like to try different techniques. My favourite colouring mediums are Copics and Prisma Pencils.
I love to look at pretty paper and card and not use it, although I am getting better!
I am on the design team for Everybody Art Challenge and have been for a number of years. In 2011 I joined the Papertake Weekly team working along side very talented ladies.
