Row, row, row your boat

On my next Lilyboo card I'm sharing with you today I've used the Row Your Boat digis from Sam's Nursery Rhyme collection at Cuddly Buddly. I've coloured the background bridge with my Copics then inked the edges with Aspen Mist Versamagic chalk ink to take off the stark white, although it doesn't show up very well in the picture. After colouring the cute couple in the row boat I've cut them out and 3d mounted onto the card to create a picture. This is a 5" x 7" card, a little bigger than I usually make and I suppose I could have made the digi images smaller, but left them the size they come. They are very easy to colour as Sam puts in little shade lines so you could just colour flat and they would still look good - and wouldn't they be fun for the kids to play with in the holidays!

I've embellished with two shades of aqua satin ribbons, Martha Stewart punched hydrangea flowers and rose leaves cut with the new Marianne English Rose die set, oh and of course my cream pearl pen.

Creative Inspirations challenge is to use punches and dies - I've got both on my card! The Papertake Weekly challenge is 'anything goes with something new', so I can enter my card with them too.

  8. Love the 3D picture effect & the bridge colouring is a real treat to behold. I do like that parasol & the way it matches her dress. Hopefully our telephone wires have now been mended so I'll be back to my usual commenting routines. It's been very strange.
