Spring Jessica


This card was made using an April showers theme with a digital image called Jessica from Guylou's Inimitibility. Very apt for us at the moment as after a few days of glorious sunshine we are back to normal UK weather, rain, clouds and cold. We even had massive hailstones last night, definitely April showers!

I bought a pack of Papermania Kraft cards and envelopes on Monday. It is something I haven't ever used before so I thought I would experiment. ( I know, which rock have I been hiding under???? Kraft is EVERYWHERE)

The DP is from the Dovecraft Sweet Owl First Editions pad. I love those packs, there are some luscious papers and they are quite a thick quality. I have wrapped the card with an elasticated twine and popped the main image on 3d foam for dimension. I then created a second layer with the outside of the umbrella. The image is coloured with Promarkers. Last but not least the sentiment is a Papermania adhesive rub-0n with glitter rubbed into it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in alphabetical order):-
