GDT Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge

Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Last month I won the Elisabeth Bell's monthly challenge and was asked to be GDT for this month, of course I had to say yes, as you all know I LOVE Elisabeth Bell's images.

Today is the start of our new challenge over at Elisabeth Bell World and this month we would like to see For the Boys.  The image I have used is from Elphine House clear stamp called Tommy Splashing Puddles.   We look forward to seeing your entries and please check out the blog to see what the talented design team have created.

I had fun making this card as boys will most definitely be boys and love frogs, newts and crabs especially splashing puddles.


1. A5 white landscape card.
2. First layer is Bo Bunny Country Garden and second layer is Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue
3. The newts and image have been matted and layered on Bo Bunny paper.
4. I stamped the image onto Supersmooth and coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens and Pencils.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment and crab.

Thank you for stopping by today and your comments.
Hugs xxxxx

Wonderful, Linda! I think you've managed to include nearly everything young boys love, especially splashing in puddles. However, I remember a few delightful puddles that came my way in childhood and they were simply too irresistible. :-D
