Forever Friends~St. Georges Day


Another little card I made last night, this time for the Forever Friends Challenge the theme being 'St Georges Day' so obviously the colours are red and white. I decided to do a single layer card and a little tip is.........use the card you usually colour with to make your card blank because I didn't lol I then found out that my distress inks just soaked up into this card so quickly that it was hard to blend, so next time I'll do it right. Anyway, as I said I have used Distress inks and a water brush to colour these cute little bears (Thanks again Paula for my gorgeous Stamp x) The colours I use are 'Tea Dye' and 'Tattered Rose'. I have also used my new Stampin Up Punches 'Scallop Oval Punch and Large Oval Punch' to make a little window at the bottom of the card and the sentiment poking through from the inside. To finish I have tied a polka dot ribbon around the card and using my Cropadile I have punched little holes and added eyelets. Enjoy the rest of your day, hope the sun is shining on you. x
