DT Card......

I've just realised how long I've wanted to say...............

................. "I can now show you my DT card"!

How exciting is that - ok, maybe not very - but it's fab to be able to say it!
I look at so many wonderful DT cards out there and am so pleased that Leanne asked me to join her at Top Tip Tuesday so I am now saying.....

....I couldn't show your earlier as I'd made this to go with Leanne's Easel Card Tutorial this week over at TTT, but now that's all posted & dusted here it is.....

I used a fab image - well 2 fab images actually from one of our lovely sponsors this week Softpencil, to make my card.

The cat and mouse mummies image is 'Adorable Mummies' and the bats are cut from 'Trick or Treat'

I coloured the images with Promarkers and used chalks around the edges for a softer colour effect. I cut out the 'doorway' and used some slim sticky pads to give it a bit of depth off the stary backing card (that's some backing card from a sheet of CHEAP gems). I distressed around the picture, its matt and the sentiment.
The bats are attached to acetate 'arms' to give a bit of movement to the card.

I took this card into work today along with others to top up my card box and had sold it withing an hour!
