A Card for a Child~

Hi Again~

If you read my last post you will know that I used some free papers from a magazine to make my last card.
Well they were so nice that I decided to use them again on this card.

In the magazine itself there are some lovely card projects using the papers, and one of them was paper weaving. I decided to have a go. I have done it before, but I did it quite rustic, this time I have been very precise and this meant patience and slow work. (Anyone who know's me will know I do everything at quick speed, and I am not a perfectionist, so this was a hard job for me....) LOL
Anyway I gave it a go and I am happy with the result, what do you think?

DP used are the free MME papers from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. The image is Bildmalana (think thats how it's spelt), this is one of Shelley's stamps (so thank you Shelley), It's cute and just right for this card. Ms Punch used again, and I have made my own flower and added a tag.

I have coloured the image with Copic's.
I am hoping to have a go with using different mediums to colour images in with, but just have not got round to trying them yet. I have seen people using the Tim Holtz distressed inks and I have lots of those, so will have to give that a go.

Decided to Enter the following challenges:

Craft Challenge--Kids and Babies
The Sweet Stop--Sketch
Papersundae--Make Flowers
Quixotic Challenge--Photo Inspiration
