Some Humour

Hello Folks,

Hope you all had a good Easter. I was dashing around the Gatwick tarmac for most of it, such is life.
Here is my entry for the current Crafty Calendar Challenge which has the theme of April Fool/Humorous. This was another quick card as not had much time for crafting lately.

I found this mini stamp by Inkadinkado in my stash and thought it would be nice to make a pocket on the card for some chocolate. The stripy paper is by Docrafts and the pocket was made from some vibrant purple Bazzill, but it looks a bit blue in these photo's! A border strip was made using purple mirri board punched with holes.

The stamped image was coloured with watercolour pencils and cut out with nestie Labels. I inked around the image whilst the paper was still inside the die, and applied some Glossy Accents to his specs but don't look too closely cos it's gone a bit lumpy! (think it must be past it's sell-by date!) Finally I added three paper domed dots at the top, and a bar of chocolate.

Thank you for looking, ttfn.

  1. Hi Fiona! Sorry you had to work all over Easter, can sympathise with you on that as have had to do it many times in the past but nice you managed to get a lovely card done. I have that stamp....somewhere and haven't used it and it's so funny and so true LOL so I don't know why not. Love your colouring and how you inked inside the die, the choc looks pretty lovely too :D. Hope you've got some days off now. Chris xx
