The linky below is for the monthly themed challenge - Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday.
Hello and welcome to Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday! I'm so excited to add this fun feature to my blog! This will be a monthly challenge, posted the first Wednesday of each month right here on my blog! I will try to have a little prize every month for you to win. This month's prize is listed at the bottom of this post.
A new theme will post the first Wednesday of each month.
(There will be no "anything goes" themes)
Combine with any other challenges.
3 entries per person please, and
most of all, have fun!!
Although this blog is mainly about papercrafting, feel free to create and share other crafts as well, just be sure to follow the monthly theme.
The theme for March is...................
All Creatures Great and Small
this means anything from insects, to our 4 legged friends, woodland creatures to birds and sea life, don't forget about those magical creatures that live a hidden life in our gardens and forests...
This should be an easy one, and I can't wait to see your creations.
For my card today I used a cute stamp from the set Garden Critters by Penny Black.
The bunny has been heat embossed on Bristol Vellum paper and then watercolored with my Zig Clean Color brush pens before fussy cutting. Sentiment is an older wood mounted stamp also by Penny Black and I used Penny Black's newest Frames Die set from the Sweet Spring release. If you're interested in this die set, I currently have it available in my Etsy shop along with some other newly released stamps.
The white card stock is Neenah Classic LINEN textured card stock (80lb weight), and my card base is Stampin Up's Crumb Cake card stock. I used a corner rounder on the bottom parts of the card. The little coral flower is from the same Frames Die set and I used a "candy dot" from Stampin Up in the flower center. Some Burlap string finishes off the card. A little bit of Wink of Stella glitter has also been added but as usual it doesn't show up well in photos.
