Quirky Dotty About Spots, Stripes & Ribbons!

Ok, It's that Quirky Time again, well it will be if Mr Blogger's timer has worked! It's my turn to set the challenge and I want to see... Dots, Spots, Stripes and Ribbon!
I've made an easel card. I've used a digi image from our sponsors Robyn's Fetish called Friends Forever and... this is the good bit~ I made my own backing papers.
I couldn't find a blue to match the blue I'd smudged around the edge of the topper, so I thought, (bit painful) why not, dab a bit of the blue colour on some paper, scan it in, open it in PaintNet and, Bob's your uncle!
Well, for those who don't know Bob, what I did was, clicked on the little dipper thingy (Photoshop, or any programme like that) and the colour box will come up with a match for that colour. Then all I had to do was have a 'play' with dots and stripes. Watch out for them in the next post, I'll add them as an
always freebie.
Back to the card. I covered a blank card with red card, and then the Dotty spotties papers. Printed the image out twice, with the sentiment curving round one of them (did all that in Word) Coloured with Promarkers, cut out an extra, not a duck, hasn't got webbed feet...not really a chicken either... anyway, cut round his body and did a bit of 3D-ing. Added more red card and Streaky Stripes paper, some ribbon, buttons, brads, card candi.
Used an Xcut boarder punch and made a sort of edge, a strip folded so it stays up to hold the easel in place, using red card and the backing paper, added another one to the top of the card to match.
The font is a freebie. It's called Jeffrey PrintJK Download it HERE There is a smidging of glitter too. Love the digi, definitely going to use it again! That's my make, now it's your turn!
