Todays card is one I made for my helper at Rainbows - Alice - she's going to be 18 in April - now this card is the one that the rainbows are going to give to her - they call her ladybird which explains the ladybirds anyway! The design was based on one involving clocks from this months craft stamper magazine by Jane ....
I started out with an A4 sheet of kraft card and cut it into 2 x A5 pieces - then folded the card by scoring at regular intervals - for the exact measurements see Craft stamper magazine.
Next I did the stamping using a papermania ladybird urban stamp - I stamped in versamark and heat set with black wow powders. Then i coloured the ladybirds in using spectrum noir pens. Finally I used spiced marmalade DI all over to warm up the kraft card - I repeated this on the reverse and on both sides of the second card too.
I folded the pieces along the score line and stuck them to a regular A6 sized card at the back then added the lettering on the front pieces.
Finally I made some rainbows and attached them by strips of acetate. Because its transparent it looks like the rainbows are floating around in the air - I think its cool - what do you think?
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
