I do love a challenge !!

Them thats knows me, knows I don`t do straight (because I can`t) and I don`t have a good relationship with white (because it doesn`t stay white for very long) !! So me being me and I do love a challenge, decided to make a starfold card !!

So what do you have to start off with...a white bit of card which then has to be cut into a triangle !! ha, ha !! Then you have to cut all the lining paper to fit !! ha, ha!! Anyway I did it and I LOVE my card !! I`ved used my lovely stamp called "Armfuls of Wishes" by Little Claire, coloured in with promarkers. All the backing paper has had all the edges distressed ( to try and hide wonky lines) and then inked and a wavy black line then drawn round. A little bit of lace has been added to the six outer edges and then on the front my lovely rosette flowers added. The sentiment is from another set by Little Claire also. "Hay presto" one starfold card !!

Ride-um Cowboy !!

Check out the monthly challenge over at Woodware its a sketch:
For my take of the sketch I have used the set of stamps from Woodware called "Cowboy" by Francoise Read. To make the rope frames,  I stamped the sentiment rope frame over and over again and then cut it into pieces to make the bigger frames ( yes I know alot of work, but its worth it !!)  I decoupaged the coyboys head to bring him forard. The whole panel is then mounted on foam. The background is coloued with distress inks and the images are coloured in with promarkers.
