Skater Boy Easel card
This week on Totally Papercrafts we want to see your easel creations. I've gone for a simple twisted easel card for a boy's birthday, and used the Marianne stamp I recently won - the skater boy. Our sponsors for this challenge are Stamp and Create, and Doodle Dragon Studios, please stop by the TPC blog to read about the prizes.
Apologies for the rather dark picture .. .. I've still not figured out how to lighten my images in the Paint program on my PC.
Here's the card, a smallish square cream base in real life - but so hard to photograph! The dotty paper is from Marianne's Beautiful Butterflies pretty paper bloc matted with Early Espresso card from SU! I've cut a fancy mat for my image with Marianne die LR0242, but as it's a card for a boy I held back on the embellishments simply adding the gross grain ribbon, diecut buttons threaded with twine, and a small daisy embellishment from Marianne dies LR0106 & LR0111. The blue dots are waste from previous diecut pieces.
The Critter Sketch challenge is to use twine, Created with Love are after different folds, Sweet Stampin' want to see something for men or boys, whilst Stamptacular Sunday are wanting you to use Dies - you know me - always!
I've been out driving my new car this morning, not the best of days and it now needs a wash again after all the rain, especially as the farmers are out on the roads with their muck spreaders! It's a comfy drive, easy on the gears (not one scrunch change!) and is a nippy little number .. .. I might try a longer trip tomorrow.
