Make a Scene...


Morning Fluffers :)


No, I'm not talking about When Harry Met Sally! Monday morning means time for a Cupcake, and we have a new Challenge... Donna has chosen Make a Scene. So get your stamps out, get masking, merging or however you do it. Or maybe you like to create a scene with Die-Cuts. Either way, we wanna see them! Show us, and you might win some images from Bugaboo Stamps!


I will admit, I felt a bit nervous about this one. In fact it scared Mojo into hiding! I had a bit of a last minute light bulb moment late last week and decided to make a brick wall for this image to sit on. Yep, I coloured the bricks and cement over the embossing myself and then spent ages colouring all the different elements of the stamp, cutting them out and then layering them back together with foam pads. Four layers! Four! It's enough to send you La-La! Back later...


Supplies... 
Embossing Folder: Tim Holtz

Hi Di

Well Mr Mojo certainly wasn't shy by the end .. .. this is a gorgeous card.

I love your little scene!

No snow caked on her window ledges or flattening her flowers I see!!! Unlike mine!!! LOL!!

Have a good day.

Love Jules xx

Louise said...

Love the little scene you have made and if it was not for the flowers she could have been looking out at the snow,we have had quite a lot in the night lol.

It has kept you busy! Four layers!! Wow, can't tell it has 4 layers, but perhaps the high cutie-ness level has something to do with that? ;)
Gorgeous as always!

WOW! This is stunning.
I can't believe you coloured those bricks yourself ( That doesn't sound right!! I mean I CAN believe YOU coloured them!) but I thought it was a design paper. Awesome!!

This is beautiful, Fluff!! So much work has gone into it. Your brick work and cutting and colouring is all lovely. I have a Memory Box windo on my wish list. I already have the flower box and a brick wall so you might see something in a similar style from me soon! Hugs, Lesley

Bridie Payne said...

Your card is lovely, I like the frame and the way she's just in the corner peeping out. The backing paper youve chosen suits the image well too.

Thanks for stopping by
