Hello. Just a quick posting to show this latest card. Only the front though, as I haven't quite finished the inside yet...LOL.
The image I am using is of Tilda Playing Hopscotch. She is from Magnolia's Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011. This is only the second time I've used her on a card, but I think I will be using her more because if you alter the original image, as I did here by removing the hopscotch pattern underneath, then she is quite versatile. I can use this card for various occasions--schools out, birthday, congratulations, retirement...
I have used my Letraset Promarkers to colour the image.
*****Zoe's challenge blog Make 'it' Colourful.
I saw Chris' card there and loved the way she did her grass, so I was trying to do it the same way, but I have a loooooong way to go to make mine looks like hers. More practices!!!
I have also now finished the inside of my card, woo-hoo. This is what it looks like...
I have used another Magnolia image here. This one is called Big Snail from the Fairytale Collection 2010. Check out Magnolia-licious for your source of Magnolia stamps. Diana has a large selection of full-size and mini stamps, as well as gorgeous cutting dies from Memory Box and PoppyStamps.
