Eleanor and Pickles

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers

Another miserable day here in Warrington so what better way then spending the day keeping warm and dry working away in my craft room.  Well yesterday I coloured in 7 digis and today I am making them up into cards.  A few of them are DT work so you will see these on Friday!!!

Well today's card I have used Heather Valentin's Digi called Eleanor and Pickles Back to School.  I think this digi is very versatile and doesn't necessarily have to be for "Back to School" cards.  I hope you like what I have made.  I just adore Eleanor and Pickles and I have told Heather that I just HAVE to have them all!!!!  You can get this digi and others from Scrapbook Stamp Society and this digi is free to download here at the moment.


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is 8 x 8 pearlescent old gold.
2.  The first layer is 6 x 6 embossed card from First Edition Boho Chic collection.
3.  Second layer is Core'dinations which I have embossed using Cuttlebug embossing folder and distressed the top layer to highlight the embossed area.
4.  The topper is Eleanor and Pickles which I have printed off onto Stampography card and coloured in using my Copic pens.  I distressed around the topper using Dew Drops Brilliance Gold Galaxy once I had cut it out using Spellbinder rectangle die.
5.  I have weaved some beige ribbon and place down the bottom of the right hand side.
6.  I have added gems and a sentiment.  To finish off I coloured 2 flower buttons with my Copics.  The centre button is from Turkey which I bought whilst I was away.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
