Just like buses

After no posts for weeks, I make 2 in 2 days so, just like buses, there are either none at all or they all come along at once!

This is a card I made simply to illustrate the fold for a group I'm in. The steps look a little wonky in this photo, which they're not, but I obviously didn't arrange the card very well before taking its picture. I think I'll have to secure it with a hidden ribbon before I send it to anyone. I've found that if you attach a fine ribbon underneath the front fold and then attach it under the rear fold, the card stands well on a level surface without gradually sinking into a flat nothing! I actually coloured the image with my Copics ages ago so I can't remember which colours I used but the papers are Blueberry Hill from Papermania and the flowers are from my stash. Unfortunately the colours of the flowers don't seem to be true in the photgraph but I can assure you that all the colours blend well together 'in the flesh'.

I hope you like this one and maybe I'll even have another one to post in the not too distant future! Have a happy Wednesday!

Mo's Dream Team Guest Designer spot

It's been such a long time since I posted anything, I didn't realise what a bad blogger I've been!

Anyway, I saw that Mo Manning (Digital Pencil Too)was looking for a guest designer and, since I love her images, I thought I'd give it a try. I absolutely fell in love with this little girl peddling off into the great wide world on her tricycle. The image is called Bye Bye, which says it all.

I coloured her with my Copics and added Glossy Accents to the tricycle frame and Sakura Stardust pen to the handlebar streamers. The DPs are from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I created the leaves with my McGill 'Pine' punch.

I hope you like it.
