Spots and Stripes

Hiya folks,

Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Off outside in a bit to finish in the garden, so this is a brief post (I hope).

This card was made following a sketch at ICS, haven't played there in a few weeks, so thought I ought to try this time round:

At MAWTT the theme this week is to make an Easel card - these are so much fun to make - you should try it if you haven't already! At Cute Card Thursday the theme is 'Mono', so I chose Black and White to go with the image I am using, and at Charisma Cardz the theme is 'Thank You'.

I have used Zebra stripe papers by Gina Jane at Daisy Company for this card, along with some dotty backing that I keep as stock on the computer. I have used this dotty paper to make the flowers, along with some silver mirri and a wee bit of black from the bits box for the centres.

My image is a little Zebra, available for purchase in my shop

I have printed this out a few times and cut parts out for layering with foam pads. I layered the whole thing onto silver mirri to give it a lift. The edges of the card have been inked too, and on the inside. I used the 'Thank You' sentiment as a raised stopper and popped a couple of extra flowers there too.

Right, off to hang out the washing and do some more weeding, blooming things are taking over!!

Hi Teri,
This is brilliant. I love the backing paper and the spotted papers are great. I love the flowers and the way you have alternated the papers in them. The wee zebra is magnificent.

Oh my Teri Doodles,
My mouth is still upon the floor! I am sooooooo in love with this card, I love a beautiful zebra. It all began with the sweet little kids movie, Racing Stripes. This is gorgeous, your zebra is fab, and so are the yummy flowers!

Good luck in the blooms, I'm hitting my garden after the sun is out and warming things up a bit! Enjoy, sweet friend!
