Friends like you... flowers, mice and rabbit C6 card - Day 57 of my 365 day challenge

Friends like you... flowers, mice and rabbit C6 card - 
Day 57 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Well what a funny day it is today - snow showers, sunshine and clouds and very cold! So this card (day 57 of my 365 day challenge), is a bright and cheerful one i think....


How I made this card:-

  • I used a pre-cut C6 white panel (from Rare Earth or Craftwork Cards) - trimming it slightly to fit a C6 white straight edged card.
  • I stamped the bluebell flower stamp (from the Friends Like You set from For The Love of Stamps) using Onyx Black Versafine ink pad and heat embossed it using a heat tool.
  • I used a water brush and added some water to the flowers a couple at a time and coloured them in using Violet Zig Clean Color pens trying to give them all some shadow towards the top of the flowers - and carried on doing the rest of them - I then used a couple of shades of green to colour in the leaves and stems. 
  • I also added one of the butterflies and coloured it in with some orange and yellow alcohol markers.
  • I let them all dry before I coloured the panel using green Altenew inks (Parrot and Moss) for the grass and then Salty Ocean and Broken China Distress Inks for the sky - trying to blend them so that it also gave a cloudy effect.
  • I had a bunny and mice already coloured in and so added them to the front of the card once I had already stuck it on.

And there you are a cheerful and fun card that is simple to make....
