My Creative Cardmaking Commission in Issue 39!

Yeah! At last I can blog the cards I made for the Creative Cardmaking commission because Issue 39 has at last hit the shops! The brief was to make 5 children's cards showing different ways to matt and layer. What a great excuse to use lots of scrummy papers!!

The image is the Girl with the Boa from LOTV - I love this image but cannot get the hair right no matter how hard I try! I've coloured her with copics and added glossy accents to the bow and glitter to the boa.
The papers are from the Polkadoodles Pretty Sweet CD ROM. Really, this is worth buying for the papers; I use them all the time. I've added some Ranger crackle paint in picket fence around the edge (it was a phase I went through, lol).

The hearts are cut with the spellbinders scalloped hearts. The flowers are from WOC and the butterfly is the Magnolia Doohickey.

Writing instructions to make a card is harder than you think!! Hope you like it; I loved writing the article and hope to do some more - keeps me out of mischief (mostly). lol.

Blue Bloods tonight. Super Yeah! Have you heard the StooShe single (featuring Travie McCoy)? It's a cracker and just so funny; go seek it out on you tube - it'll make you giggle. Hugs, Jayne xx

Congrats on being in Issue 39. I think we must have bumped into each other between the pages! LOL
Writing card instructions is not as easy as it seems but it's good discipline. :)
Smashing card again. You are sooooo talented! Way to go!
