Well this style of card is another new thing for me to try out. There is a tutorial and some stunning DT examples of the tent card over on the Just Magnolia blog for their special monthly challenge which is to make a tent card.
In my infinite wisdom I decided to make a swing for Tilda to sit on. What a faff about it was too. The card itself was easy to make and one I will make again but during my creation it nearly ended up in the bin several times!!!
Tilda was water coloured (my first disaster was to use pro markers thinking the image I had received in a swap was stamped with Memento) but it bled terribly so she ended up in the bin, I used cosmic shimmers for the flowers and the bow in her hat. I attached the chain (half inched from one of my sons toys LOL) using jump rings, this was my second disaster, I could only find one set of pliers so had to make do with those and my thumb nail to open the jump ring), I pierced 2 holes in the top of the aperture to hang the chain from - this is where my third disaster happened as I was putting the ring through it ripped the paper arrrgghhh (hence the lace cover up LOL). I hand drew the wooden swing seat and attached Tilda with glue - 4th disaster as she was top heavy and kept tumbling forward - by this stage I was ready to seriously give it up as a bad job! Anyhow using anger management techniques (no I don't go to anger management sessions LOL) I walked away from it and when I went back later it all fell into place - phew!!!
Papers are Blueberry Hill by Papermania.
Lace from my local fabric shop.
Flowers are from Hobbycraft and some from my stash. Fabric flower same as previous post.
The beads are from a wedding favour.
I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Mother Day/girly which it definitely is!
Magical Crafts - Something for Mum
C.R.A.F.T challenge - Mothers day/flowers (this meets both)
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday - Open Challenge
