I was talking to my son and grandchildren in Australia by Skype the other weekend. My older grandson showed me a boat he had made by himself from a cardboard roll and paper. He was very pleased with himself!
I thought he needed a pirate to go in it so I said I'd make him a card with a pirate on it. Here it is:
The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and I coloured it in using watercolours. The paper I got as a bargain pack a long time ago and the buttons and lighthouse were from my stash. I thought it came out rather well. I sent a photo to my son for him to print out for my grandson and he said he was delighted with it.
Obviously I had to ask my grand daughter what picture she would like me to do for her. After a bit of thought she decided on a fairy. I was originally going to do a Flower Fairy but then thought they're a bit old for a 6 year old. I thought this picture from Crafters Companion Angelica CD was absolutely perfect with her little teddy. I printed off a 'quick' card from the CD. Everything was printed on one sheet of paper, even the bow and embellishments. They look quite real don't they? I did add some Stickles to the dress, wings and teddy's nose and the embellishments and I did add a couple of buttons and a charm from my stash.
Thank you for looking. x
