Stick 'em up

I was lucky enough to win some image from The Paper Shelter and I was so pleased to find that you get the outline images and the ready coloured images. Now I love to colour with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers but I have a lot of craft fairs coming up and using some coloured images enables me to build up my stock more quickly. I won't be sharing them all with you but this card shows what you can achieve with a pre coloured image. The colouring is really good on these images too, lots of shading.

I have used DI Wild Honey around the edges and MME Blink of an Eye papers. Love the sunny colours of these papers. I coloured some scrim with the DI too and added some faux leather strips I found in The Works for 99p a pack, bargain. I used my MS zigzag punch along with Woodware and Fiskars star punches. The large stars have been through the crimper. Sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
