Hello - Happy Thursday everyone, hope you are having a good week! I'm on leave from work this week, but have had a sore throat since last Friday - typical! My husband is on leave as well, so we are having a family week - not doing much around the house, just essential housework like cooking, washing up, etc. We managed a fab day out at RAF Cosford Air Museum on Tuesday, nephew's birthday party yesterday, Eleri's just got back from another birthday party (!) (with her face painted with a beach scene!), and hopefully we're off to the cinema and for a pizza tomorrow!
So the card I'm showing today is what I made for my nephew - Jake was 6 yesterday.
The image was a freebie digi from Whiff of Joy, called Spider Henry - I've attempted to colour him with promarkers! I would love to own some of the new Aquamarkers - think maybe I'd get better colouring technique with them! The netty stuff you can see on the side is from a tub of nectarines - was supposed to represent a web but it didn't really work - should have coloured it black or grey perhaps! I made the ticket sentiment on the computer - but notice the blob? - Eleri was helping me finish the card yesterday and must have spat(! - sorry!) a bit as she spoke, and it took the colour off the sentiment (aaaaagghhhhh! - not enough time to put it right!) - I tried to correct it by colouring over the white spot with the promarkers but it wasn't really the right colour (oh well! - Andrew said "Jake'll only be interested in the present anyway" - not sure if that made us feel better or not! LOL) That's what worries me about using digi papers for projects to be honest - what if little accidents like that spoil the finished item? Anyway, I don't think anyone else noticed when Jake opened his card.
The challenges I'm entering this card for are:
Totally Papercrafts - Going to the Movies - Spiderman of course!
Creative Craft - Animal Antics
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - You're Out of This World - something you wouldn't see IRL
I do have another card to show you - the one I made for Eleri's friend whose party was today - probably post that tomorrow. I'd love it if you could pop back to look-see.
Love, Andrea xx
