Oh I so love this image, do you? In fact I adore every single one of Mo's fabulous images and it seems that we're all hooked judging by what I've seen recently on my travels around blogland. I have a couple of birthdays coming up for shall we say slightly older ladies, there that was nice and polite wasn't it, lol, so I thought this image and Penny Black sentiment would be sweet! I also added a Tim Holtz ticket because the old lady looks like she is having such a blissful time.
I paper pieced the skirt with paper from the new Basic Grey Indian Summer range, have you go your mitts on it yet? Soooooo scrummy and the colours are divine!! The Tuesday Taggers Challenge is this week asking us to use either die cuts or punches..... or even both..... so I cut the leaves with a BossKut die and the flowers were created from the MS Hydrangea punch. I added some little spacers to the middle of the flowers and some pearls and swirls to the edge of my image. I think the leaves help to create quite a floaty feel which is carried through by the skirt.
Well I'm off to finish my card for this weekend's Basic Grey Challenge but you still have time to enter the existing challenge where there is a beautiful picture to give you some inspiration.
Whatever you're up to today, hope you have a good one!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
