Here's my Carol Steedman inspired card:
I started by creating the little background scene on a stitched die cut rectangle. I lightly drew around the inside of the larger die so I knew the size of the space that needed filling. The frame was made by die cutting and embossing the larger die and then placing the nexr size down die inside to cut the aperture.
The cute cat and mouse were stamped, coloured and hand cut and popped onto pads to raise them up. A trio of hearts and the sentiment came next, then the whole thing was matted onto the taupe card before adhering to a white card base.
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Best Friends
Inks: SU, soft sky, emerald envy, soft suede
Card: SU, tip top taupe
Dies: Spellbindrs, small labels; Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles; Lawn Fawn, hearts
Promarkers: sunkissed pink, umber, cinnamon, caramel
Phew! It's been a while since I've put so many layers and elements on a card and had such a long supply list.
And I've just discovered I was a winner with this same challenge last month - here. How exciting is that!
