" Hay There ! "
Here is a card I`ve done for Sir Stampalot for the launch of the new Molly Blooms range, I love this donkey, I giggled the whole time I was colouring it, check out the eyelashes and the spotty wellies, I just love Clare Rowlands designs.
I have coloured the images with distress inks, the background paper is Basic Grey and the flowers are Prima. The little "twigs" are actually the stems of the roses that I usually throw away, but when I`d cut them off they fell on my craft desk in a bundle and I just thought what a neat idea to use them as twigs. I normally trapse around the garden looking for little twiggy bits to use in my projects when I need them, now I have a pot full of little stems that usually end up in the bin ! (us crafters never throw anything out do we !!)
I have used SU linen thread to tie little bows in her hair and boy was THAT fiddly ! thank God for tweezers that`s all I can say !
The leaves are punched with the ash branch craft punch also available from Sir Stampalot.
The apperture was cut with the large circle nesties die and the little tag is an old sizzix scallop tag die which is a very useful three tag die that I`ve had a lot of mileage out of.
Well it`s almost 2am now so I`d better sign off and try and get some sleep !
Thanks for visiting, bye for now and happy crafting xxx
