This is my card for the challenge I am hosting on the DC forums which follows a sketch.
I made it using the new freebie stamp from the latest DC magazine, Tatty Teddy!I'm so pleased DC have purchased the license for these products as this little grey bear is so cute!
I saw this method with a split patterned backing paper and ribbon strip used on a card somewhere ages ago and wanted to try it for myself. :)The paper is by Buzzcraft which I bought in a pack from the recent Sincerely Yours papercraft show.
I stamped Tatty Ted with black versafine ink and coloured it with my waterbrush using the Soft Grey Fur ink. Then I used my craft knife to cut slit in his paw to allow him to 'hold' the mini flag I made using a cocktail stick, some pearlescent card and a star brad - simple!
I thought this was a nice different way of using the stamp instead of just as a basic image and there is scope for other items to be used in this way. Thanks for stopping by, Ni :) x
