Fiskars Creepy Crawly Green Greetings
I made these cards using the Fiskars Creepy Crawlies stamp set and my Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens paired up with papers from The Best of K & Co Too. For the first card I stamped the three images in archival then coloured with the markers. I trimmed them so that the top and bottom images were the same size and the middle image though smaller had the same width. I used distress inks around the edges in colours that co-ordinated with the markers ( used some scrap paper as a tester so I didn't ruin my images by using colours hat wouldn't work). I stamped some webs around the edges of my chosen background paper (TBH I didn't like this paper and was challenging myself to make something nice with it) and added it to a white cs base. I mounted the stamped images on foam tape to make them pop a little more.
For this card I coloured the frog same as before and stamped a sentiment. I distress inked both first with Shabby Shutters and then Pine Needles. I made both squares the same size and then cut some slightly larger squares from white cs. The Frog has double sided tape on both layers where as the sentiment only has it between the sentiment and white cs. The background paper has had its edges distress inked with Pine Needles
Even though I started with a paper I didn't like I quite like how the cards turned out. I made a third card almost the same as the first one and the young boy thought it was great :) Boys and bugs what can I say lol . . .
