I am so lucky that I have made some friends who are far removed from my crafting life and we have bonded over a love of a particular band. I wanted to send some of my handmade cards to some of the ladies because as glorious as the internet is, it lacks something personal and this is personal from me. I haven’t been able to make anymore than this at the moment (I shall be sorting this out soon) but for the lady I made this for, I thought this was an apt image.
I stamped the image and coloured it in using a wide variety of promarkers and flexmarkers. The image lent itself very well to lots of lovely colours and to compliment this I decided to use papers from the Craftwork Cards Country Charm paper pad, with its patchwork effects and lovely colours. I used this paper to make some roses using my sizzix big shot as I love adding flowers. I then found some ribbon from stash to finish the card off. So pretty and I think this is a design I shall return to time and time again.
