Dragons Lair Designs May Challenge

This month the theme for the monthly Dragons Lair Designs challenge is: Women at Work. Here is my sample.

Materials used:SAM_2839(watermarked)
Dragons Lair Designs – Lost and Found Treasures 
Janette Padley (Designer at Dragons Lair Designs) – Framed Sewing Theme Digi Stamp
printer card
Copic pens
printer paper
X-Press It card
clear gem

Having decided on the style and size of the card I wanted to make I printed out all the elements I needed.

The main image is coloured with Copic pens.

The accents are fussy cut print outs from the Lost and Found Treasures set.

SAM_2840(watermarked)The insert has an image from the Lost and Found Treasures set with the shape faded out for writing the greeting on.

I also made a matching envelope.SAM_2841(watermarked)

While I was making this card it occured to me that it would also make a fantastic front on a boasting book for someone who is into needlecrafts to put photographs of their creations in. I feel a future Christmas present project coming on!

I hope that you will come along and join in the fun at Dragons Lair Designs. The challenge is open for a whole month so you have plenty of time to come up with an entry.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
