Green Monster

I've never managed before to join in with a Kathy's Waffle Sketch file and finally I have!! This card took a bit of planning in my head before I committed myself but it was perfectly clear what I was going to use as soon as I saw the image! The digi image is from Jellypark and it can be yours for the bargain price of £1.25! I've coloured it with Promarkers.

All the papers are from Funky Hand - Craft The Year Away cd and I've used random buttons tied up with thin green satin ribbon plus brads and snaps around the edge of the image. I've also added some tiny green seed beads too from Natty Netty.

A few dots of liquid pearls here and there and the card is complete!

It also fits the following challenges:

Incy Wincy: Tic Tac Toe - my line is diagonal - brads, ribbon and something green
The Crafty Pad: Stripes (I won last week's challenge - thank you!!)
House of Gilli: Buttons
Tuesday Throwdown: Animals
My Time To Craft: Wildlife
Creative Craft World: 3 or more brads (I've used 7)

  • Papers: Craft The Year Away from Funky Hand
  • Image: Jellypark, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash
