Allsorts #14

Afternoon bloggers! Hope the weather's not too bad with you - here in South Wales the rain keeps reminding us it's about, but it's quite bright in-between - if not a touch windy!

This weeks theme over on the Allsorts Challenge blog was 'Country Garden'. After using my 'Boy Carrying Watering Can' stamp last week I felt myself being drawn to it for this challenge too. I used my Whispers pens to colour it as I am still limited on my Promarker colours and felt they would be too much - I so NEED to buy more!

I decided to do something a little different with the image this time, but I wasn't sure what! So after sitting and fiddling for a while I decided to cut away the 'backdrop' and fix it over an aperture in the card. I then added an insert made with matching paper so it can be seen through the picture.

My MS Doily Lace Punch was still out from last night's play - so had to use that too! Added some ribbon and flowers punched from the papers. Papers used are...............Yep - BG 'Sugared' - AGAIN! I soooooo need to buy some more papers too!

    Your aperutyre idea worked really weel, relly nice cardm your little boy looks just as though he's going throuhg the door to take is Mum a basket of flowers.

    If you feel yuo 'need' more promarkers, then I am sure you do - did you know there are lots of new colours coming out next month ?

    Thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week.

  7. Hi Carole,
    can i just say this is another beautiful card, I know what you mean about the boarder punch - I only have one so far but find myself using it on everything.
    So far i only have 15 Pro-Markers so i'm very limited but my little collection is growing, I didnt realise when i started crafting that my bank balance was going to take a bashng on a weekly basis - but craft shopping is so much fun:)
    Take Care and enjoy your evening - Ju xx

  8. Gorgeous card, I like the idea of the aperture.
    Have a good weekend. Kathleen x
