Get Funky Challenge 8 - April Showers

It's the start of another month so it's time for another Get Funky challenge! This month the theme has been set by Kathy who has chosen:

April Showers

Pop over to the challenge blog to see some wonderful samples (as always!) from the Design Team and to familiarise yourself with the rules.

I've made a card which will be for a gardener hence all the rustic elements - garden twine and a cork tag - and it will be personalised nearer the time. I've used Funky Daze papers for the wellies and also the background with a lot of chalking and inking to provide the depth and shading to the wellies!

I've added metal eyelets around the edge of the card and I've threaded the twine twice through the holes so it looks all joined up.

Hope you can join us this month and good luck if you do!

  • Printed papers: Funky Daze from Funky Hand
  • Everything else: My stash

  5. This is just brilliant! I love every little bit of it, but especially the twine around the edge. I've got some cork flowers somewhere - I sort of shoved them to the back of a box as I couldn't figure out what to do with them - now I'm (almost) inspired to go find them!

  6. Just love the wellies Ruth, so realistic, they look like someone has just stepped out of them! Enjoy your weekend. :)xx
