On Parade

We have another nice easy challenge starting today at Passion for Promarkers, we would like to see Spots and/or Stripes on your projects.
I have had this digi stamp for a while and decided it was time to colour it up and add it to a fancy fold card which I saw on Youtube.
These little critters are so cute, I love them!

Image - 'Lovey Puppy' by Mama Elephant cut out using co-ordinating dies

I created the background using distress inks over a stencil and then applying Ranger translucent  texture paste for dimension and shine, neither of which show up in the photo!

The corners were cut with Sue Wilson's 'Meridian Edger' die and backed with silver mirri card

Enamel dots, sequins and a bow to finish off

'Anything Goes with option of Love' - Whoopsi Daisy
'Anything Goes with option of use a die or punch' - I  Love Promarkers

My PFP challenge

Yes, it's my turn to choose a challenge theme for this fortnight at Passion for Promarkers, so I've made it an easy one ('cos I don't do difficult!)
Please enter projects that have 'Animals' as the focal point

I couldn't resist using the cute little elephants from MFT, I wasn't sure which one to feature, so I used all four! the design was inspired by a YouTube video from Jennifer Mcguire and you can find it here
I used the co-ordinating dies to partially die-cut the elephants from the top of the folded card blank - a bit fiddly with an electric machine, but I really like the end result

Image and dies  - 'Adorable Elephants' - MFT from Seven Hill Crafts
Paper - 'Plaid Patterns' 6 x 6 pad - MFT also from Seven Hill Crafts
Bow from stash
'Happy' die - Whimsy Stamps 
Border die - 'A2 Scalloped Borders One' - Spellbinders
