Cute Card Thursday ~ Challenge 24

This weeks challenge is to make a card using BRIGHT COLOURS.

We have 2 gorgeous stamps from Kitty at Spiral Whisper to give to one lucky randomly chosen winner, Count Maxula and Milly Broom Stick.

Its my friends birthday on Monday so I decided to use this challenge to make her a card... but it didn't quite turn out anything like a card so I hope this counts......

Whilst blog hopping I found a tutorial for this technique on Dawny P's blog. You should check it out its so easy ....look even I did one lol! I used my paddling Tilda stamp (or whatever she's called lol not really up on all their names yet!) and coloured her with H2O's and watercolour pencils. The sentiment and verse I printed onto tissue paper by sticking it with double sided tape to a scrap piece of card to get it to go through the printer (although the printer nearly went through the window!) Tissue paper, cellophane and ribbon ~ stash.

  11. What a wicked idea. Much better than a card. But I would not be able to lit it - I'd keep it forever.
    Well, I just love that idea :)
