Funky Girl

The challenge this week on Dottie's blog is a sketch:
For my card I have used one of the Holly and Madison downloads which I have coloured with watercolour pencils and have neatly cut round her too. All the backing papers are scraps from previous projects and are from Funky Daze. I've rounded and inked all the edges too with green and blue ink.

Although I've not put the three dots at the top right hand of the card (like the sketch) I thought that the dotty paper would suffice..... or not?!

Sentiment has been double stamped with blue (it didn't look strong enough on its own) and then with black ink, and it is a Studio G acrylic clear stamp. All the flowers are from Jozza, the heart embroidered button is from my recent button swop with Jacqui and the brads are Papermania. The scalloped border has been created with a Martha Stewart punch.

  • Backing papers: Funky Daze from Funky Hand
  • Image: Holly and Madison download from Charmed Cards and Crafts
  • Flowers: From Jozza
  • Heart Button: From a recent handmade button swop and from Jacqui
  • Border Punch: Martha Stewart
  • Sentiment: Studio G acrylic stamp
