Summer Party Time.

Summer Party Time, it's a play on words....who's clever enough to work it out? 'Summer', a link to those lovely freebie paper's and 'Party Time', the name of the Penny Black Rubber stamp. I made this card for a challenge, over on Honeypot Crafts. Phil is having a Penny Black Challenge with a chance to win some yummy blog candy! Actually I made the Summer Shaker for the challenge originally, but then realised, it needed to be a stamped image and not a Stickeroo...then I forgot to add ribbons and fibre, so took the top photo about three minutes ago with added fibre! (gotta have your added fiber) First I covered the card, then added the 'grass', (sort of hand drawn and then cut out) then made the frame around the card and 'stitched' it with a white Sarura GellyRoll pen, so I'm hoping that'll be enough 'layering.' I stamped the hedgies onto the backing paper so I'd get all the whiskers, hairy bits and the strings to their balloons, then stamped onto some card, first coloured them with water colour pencils, but went over that with Whisper Pens, as it didn't look bright enough. Those 'Summer' papers are really bright. I cut the Hedgies out and decoupaged them over the stamped image...The flowers and leaves were punched out with Woodware punches. Added a bit of Sticklers Glitter. The Party Time wording is a clear stamp in the Bubbles and Squeak Collection. I've just realised I haven't used Squeak yet...aw poor Squeak! The lower pictures of the card are the ones I took this afternoon, without the ribbon and fibre, slightly different colours as these were taken outside in natural light...I was trying to be all clever and put Spyder's Corner along the bottom. I even cut the back ground out so you couldn't see my cooking utensils or my untidy living room! or in this case my wild and over grown flower border. Weird that the pictures look bigger, even though I cropped them. I think it looks a bit too busy. I wanted it to look as though they were running through a flower garden and I had it in my head to do, so, I couldn't argue with myself! (I sometimes think the 'voices' are taking over...)
Before I go, I'd like to say "Hi!" Welcome and a big (((wave))) to FairyMadJo. Jo has a lovely blog so please pop over and say hi and leave lots of lovely comments...I think you just might find some fairies over there!
