Good morning everyone, hope the weather where you are is not too bad, and if it is that you are safe and warm keeping yourselves busy crafting. The weather here is dull and cold and I will be taking Poppy out on the beach as soon as I finish this post, I would prefer to stay in the warmth crafting but will get no peace until she has had here walk.
I was lucky enough to be picked in the top three for the Scribbles Designs challenge last month and my reward was a digi download of my choice. I picked Cool Carl who will be used for some of my mens' cards, and as the challenge at Scribbles Designs this month is "Shades of Green - Easter" here is Carl's first outing on my spring greens card.
Using the Silhouette I made up the word Spring, making the S slightly larger so Carl had something to lean against. The word was cut out using white linen card, coloured with squeezed lemonade and mowed lawn DIs, and stamped with bullrushes and flowers using Craftwork Cards Graceful Grasses & Birdcages clear stamps. Carl was printed directly onto a 15cm square card along with the "has sprung" sentiment and coloured with DIs, his classes were covered with glossy accents to give them a glass like appearance. Once the glossy accent was dry I attached the word under Carl with 3D sticky fixers.
