I am really getting onto the flow with these easel cards!
I needed to make a card for my friend Stephanie so here's the card I created for her and the Penny Black & Friends Saturday Challenge for the October challenge they have set a sketch which I have followed...
Embelishments and sentimenrts may be placed wherever I wish but I left it without a sentiment as I think my friend will want to leave this out on show for a while or even frame it!
I started to make this over a week ago but have been poorly and just not well enough to think straight!
I intended this card to be entered into a challenge that called for paper piecing, therefore I pieced the teddy arm, the gift, then the ribbon and bow and the tag on the gift then I used glossy accents on the bow to make the ribbon shine!
Here's the easel card opened up and showing the inside too. I wanted the sweet image of the teddy and the rose paper to really be the focal point of this card so kept embelishments to a minimum.
The image is a Penny Black stamp 3981K Team Teddy,
I coloured it with Promarkers. I have only used half of the image, masking off the other little creatures
as there wasn't enough room for all of them to fit within the circle.
I love the feminine feel of this card, it's just right for the friend it's intended for!
thanks for looking
