Strangely appeared almost overnight from the stump of an old tree. At this point about 5'' I became a bit fascinated and took to keeping my camera to study it's growth. But it was not to be, in a rather public place, it soon disappeared
Just a little note about this card - Maggie's hair and Mo Manning has several in the frizzy style, at first I couldn't get it right (not sure I have now) but getting there. Depending on what colour you want, you do need about six colours and work in dots, don't be too tempted to blend. *Exactly in the UK where you can get a FULL range of Mo's stamps I've no idea. Hence the ease at getting them direct from the USA website. There is also an active FACEBOOK forum.
A tip about this card, I used the method of tucking the 'windmill' over the top of the cutting edge of the diecut. Now I've discovered that you need to colour first since the cardstock is 'distressed' by the cutting making the Promarkers bleed extensively
Had one of my mad moments yesterday I made a card for the Allsort challenge, which ended up too bright, but I'd printed off more than I needed and found myself doodling away whilst watching a repeat of Lewis (love Lewis) Never done anything like this before, don't know where it came from!! The bonkers side of the brain
This is a screen shot of Paint Shop pro. Here you can see the two graphics, the Finna Fairy hasn't been rendered to a true transparency (thats the grey squares) but most of the background (white) removed. The second graphic the stream & butterflies had already been rendered to transparency. Then a very light chalk colour applied using, PSP in the background of both images. Here I'm working with five layers, sounds difficult, but isn't. Then Promarkers for the main colouring of the card then added.
