HuGs for You ~ FFF and PDCC


Good Morning, I realise there's a fantastic Monday Mania challenge over at Club Anya & Friends but I've been wanting to use this adorable image for a while now...


  My card is based on the fabulous FFF sketch over at The Greeting farm and I decided to combine this with the colour challenge over at Play Date Cafe too. I treated myself to some pink paislee papers from the Stamp Attic while I was there ~ art journalling "Hello ladies"... (getting inky and messy, tee hee) Wendy has a fabulous shop I could have spent the day in there, a proper crafty treasure trove.
So on to the card... I have paper pieced the adorable grandma although some of the pattern is a little lost in the picture. I made the canvas flower by inking some sticky back canvas with distress inks and stamping the dotty background. Then, I have die cut and adhered two back to back to get a double sided petal (probably should have done that before I passed it through my big shot!). The BG brad just went so well with the colours and I have stamped the sentiment directly onto the taffeta ribbon. I fussy cut the flowery leaves and raised on a little foam.


Supplies: Patterned Paper: pink paislee; Queen Bee;
Stamps: The Greeting Farm: Grammie & Gramps set; PTI: Polka Dot basics II;
Ink: Memento & archival: black; Copic: markers*; distress inks*;
Dies: Sizzix: TH tattered florals;
Other: BG: glazed brad; Taffeta ribbon; Studio: sticky back canvas; Prima: lace; TH ruler, pokey tool & edge distresser; 3D foam; 






*Skin: E000, 11, 13 & R20, eyes: B41, Hair: E35, 97 Outfit: RV21, E04, YG93, C-3, I used my colourless Blender throughout!!!

Thank you for stopping by, hope you have a good start to your week, HuGs Kim :)
