Got to the Playground at Last!

A while back when Imagine That Digistamp held their monthly progressive challenge I managed to play along every month. The incentive was being able to receive the image for the following month free. Since they moved to a monthly link up, even though in theory it should be easier because you can use any of their images, I have always missed it. Not this month, a bit last minute but I got there!


Materials used:
Imagine That Digistamp – Rocky’s Stonemobile
free forest image from the internet
X-Press It card
printer card
A5 white card blank
Copic pens

Print the image on X-Press It card at the required size and colour with Copics. Print the background image and the sentiment on white printer card.

Cut the backing image to size and attach to card front. Fussy Rocky and use gel glue to stick into the scene on the card. Trim the sentiment to size and edge with a brown pen. attach sentiment to top of card.

I think this one is going away until my brother’s birthday in November. He is very much into cars and is in the process of building one at the moment. His long suffering wife has the patience of angels!

Thanks for stopping by. Take care.

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.

So Pippa, I CHALLENGE YOU to create with this month’s featured set I’m going to send you in a bit to enter August linky with OK? heehee. You’re too cute.
