Bug Brats Easter 01

 


It is the start of a new month and I am back with my DT hat on for 



As long as you made a card with the March freebie you will automatically get the April image free. It is a fabulous way to use images from artists you many not have used before. Also sometimes the image is completely different to something you would normally use. It has been a good way for me to stretch my creativity and take me out of my comfort zone. 

I would highly recommend anyone who is not already taking part to jump in and have a go. We are a really friendly bunch at The Outlawz.



This month we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps



We have been given this image Bug Brats Easter 01 to play with. Easter cards are not something I tend to make very often but this is such a cute image. I am sure we all know a little girl who loves to dress up.

I coloured the image using a combination of Promarkers and pencils and then fussy cut with my favourite Fiskars embroidery scissors. They have short blades and are perfect for precision cutting. I popped the image up on thin foam pads.

The card base is a sheet of A4 card and I covered this with the green spotty paper. The glittery Easter egg paper is from the Spring Drop First Editions paper pad. I added a layer of pink gingham underneath. The image has been layered onto a stripy paper in pastel shades and I added the pale pink mat underneath.

The sentiment is from Scrap N Fonts. They don't seem to be around anymore which is a shame as they did loads of printables and sentiments which I have used over the years.

The 2 little fat chicks are from Birdie Brown. I was gutted when she stopped making digis as she had so many cute ones. She did however go on to design rubber stamps for some big companies so happy to see she is still designing.

Finally the banner is an old pre-printed banner from Let's Make Cards magazine. I used to subscribe to it many years ago and there are so many elements I still have that are used in cards to this day. Some bits were really good, some not so much. I was never into the cut and paste style of cardmaking that this seemed to do, always more interested in doing my own thing and not copying other cards. The banner was too big for the card so I did some careful trimming and used some small brads to join the sections together.

I hope we will see you enter our challenge at The Outlawz and look forward to seeing the entries using this image.
