Anything But a Card - Bugaboo Stamps


I made a laminated fridge magnet for my Dt project for the Bugaboo Stamps' Catch the Bug blog post today.

The image is called Bugaboo Brat – Jesse Moon that I coloured with Copics.


The sentiment is not part of the image, but  added before printing.

Did Someone Say 'Ho' ?!



The challenge is to make a gatefold card this week and the sponsor is QKR Stampede, so I deecided to use one of the sponsor's images for my entry.  This one is called 'Old Lady'
 I used Copics, a white gel pen and Stickles to colour the image, and then fussy cut it for the front of my card.
I generated the sentiment in MS Word, and the flower was made from the corner rounded bits from my envelope pinch board..  (I think it looks a little like a white poinsettia)


This is the inside of the card

I love a cheeky card, and this one came out exactly as I planned it.
