About Me

My 2014 resolutions are (1) to not always take the lazy 'Copic' option, and instead reach for the paintbrush and Distress Ink reinkers, and (2) to use what stash I have and not buy more (hmm, it's probably best if you don't ask me how successful that was!). I love your feedback on my creations and I read every message, so please leave a comment, or use my sidebar 'chatbox' widget to let me know you've visited.

Charlotte Elsie

We've got a month long "Anything Goes" challenge at A Gem of a Challenge to take us through to the new year, and I've got a special card to share for the occasion.

Following on from yesterday's post, this card was actually one of the cards commissioned by the lovely Lorna.  She had seen my recent Jungle Clock and wanted a personalised baby card for a friend using the jungle images, because her friend has decorated the nursery in a similar theme.

I arranged my images again in the same order, resizing them to fit the area, and typed the babe's name, DOB and weight in fancy font - her name is so sweet; Charlotte Elsie.

I used my favourite Papermania papers for the occasion, in various pinks, and stitched around all the panels, layering them up on 3D foam pads.  Finally I decorated with pearls and flowers, and a strip of soft pink pompoms.
