FAIRY TALES


Hi,


This is a card I just had to make. Have had the image over a fortnight now from Elizabeth O Dulemba and have been dying to use it, but didn't know quite how. So decided on presenting it like this.


Tore a dictionary page, put it on a piece card, then mounted it on a pre-cut card; distress inked it in 3 colours. Then stamped it with a Darcie's stamp and added some black stickles. Card has been left blank ready for the sentiment, oops nearly forgot, skin coloured with watercolour pencil and then the rest is promarkers (only got one set of these and its the Skin Accents one).


Thanks for popping in and hope you like it. Annette x

People should be forbidden to show me gorgeous things. Cause I'm like a 3-year old. Me wanna!!! Wanna dat image, wanna dat background stamp, wanna old dictionary (cuz mine all all good and very necessary, considering I'm not native English speaker).
Next time you should try and make something really ugly and boring and totally non-creative. Go on, I challenge you!!!
Stay strong and crafty!!
Hugs
Annika
