Penpal and Lizzie with Muff

Hi everyone, its Tina member of Crafty Urchins DT team . Sorry for long delay in postings but I have been ill and i am only just getting things back on track. These gorgeous cards are made by Jane another of our DT members.

Jane has used the Whiff of Joy image Penpal, coloured in by Promakers with following colours,

Skin: Ivory and Blush.

Hair: Sandstone and Caramel.

Jeans: Pastel Blue and China Blue.

Shirt: Meadow green and Leaf green.

Headband and belt: China Blue.

Flowers and hearts : Poppy Red.

Around the image: Cool Grey 1

White gel pen for highlights.

The background was stamped with a stamp Jane's had in her stash for ages the company no longer exists.Although we carry a similar stamp in from inkadinkado Fountain pen, envelope front and back stamps are from Dimension Fourth. Jane has layered the envelope front stamp on a angle which gives a great effect.

The image has been layered on to oval Nesties with foam pads , the stamped background was matted onto turquoise and silver card. A inverted punch was used at corners.

This a a side view of the card i think the base card was an 8x8 but Jane tends to make random sizes then worries about the envelopes and boxes, well lots of box lids later! Hey artistic licence at work!!!


The image used for this card is Lizzie with Muff from Whiff of Joy.

She has been coloured in with Promarkers in the following shades,

Hair: Sandstone, Caramel and Raw Sienna.

Skin: Ivory and Blush.

Coat and Boots: Azure Blue.

Muffs and scarf: Powder Blue.

The image has been cut out and mounted on the card with foam pads for extra dimension.
The stamp Jane used is Snowflake trail by Inkadinkado. Ink, Cyan blue Versafiine, Pearl blue embossing powder.

White snowflake peel offs on acetate were used for embellishments with white pearls for extra bit of bling. The sentiment is from Jane's stash. All items apart from things from Jane's stash are available from shop.

Here is the side view aren't the the colours fab, very clever our Jane.

Thanks for looking we really do appreciate it. I will try and not leave it so long with the next posting, happy crafting Luv Tina....x
