I have quite a few odd scraps of spotty paper (who can throw anything away? ) and this card was made to use some of those scraps.
The background was formed by orange and pink spotty paper layered onto fuchsia centura pearl. A strip of smaller pink spotty paper was also backed by the fuchsia centura pearl and attached horizontally to the card.
The stamped image 'daydream believer' from Crafter's Companion S.w.a.l.k. collection was coloured with Promarkers and also backed with fuchsia. The image was stamped again onto yet more spotty paper and the girls hair ribbons and clothes were cut out and fixed to the coloured image.
The sunflower 'garden' was made by stamping onto even more (!!) spotty paper and cutting out and assembling seven separate images. Card candi was used for the flower centres.
The card was completed with a label bearing the message 'with love' attached by ribbon.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting Musketeers - sketch
Creative Corner - polka dots
Whoopsi Daisy - paper piecing
Dream Valley - summer days
Penny Black and More - in the garden
