Will-O and the Wisps

Morning my crafting friends, lovely to have you visit me today, I do love your visits and any comments you may make, its good to know you all support me in my creativity.

Its back to work today after a wonderful long weekend off but only four days till half term lol! We do wish our lives away in this job I can tell you. How I would love to retire or find a job where I can craft all day!!!

Anyhow, today's post is another stamped image from Norma J Burnell who designed the Moon Owl I did on Sunday.

This time I decided not to stamp straight onto the card as I felt she needed to be die cut.

I matted up a basic 6" X 6" White card with Rich Plum card then I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of White card before putting it through the E-Bosser with the California Background die to emboss the pattern onto the card, this was not wide enough to do the whole card, I could have extended it but decided to leave it plain as the image was going to go there anyway and I quite liked the contrast.

I stamped my image onto White card and coloured it in with Promarkers, I actually coloured her in with similar colours that are shown in the image on the front of the stamp packaging as I liked these colours. I die cut her out with Gold Labels Four, then die cut a piece of Rich Plum card  also using Gold Lables Four, I cut this in half and placed it under each end of the image to make it look like a larger die cut if you get my meaning? I attached the image to my card on the right side.

To finish the card off I added a Fern leaf and three little flowers, to match the colours used in my image, in the bottom left corner. There you have the finished card.
