This is one of my favourite ways to make cards, especially when colouring. The image is by Wild Rose Studio and I stamped it twice and coloured using Promarkers. I like to colour 2 at a time so that I can at least end up with one image that I'm happy with, although in this case both turned out fine. It had been a long time since I had got my Promarkers out so I was surprised to end up with 2 usable images. I used a Die'sire die (Classical Frame) to cut the coloured image and then mounted it onto a rectangle of red card. I rounded the edges to keep the image close to the edge. The papers are also Wild Rose Studio and were simply cut to size and mounted onto white card blanks. The card on the left had a birthday circular sentiment and the one on the right has a Father's Day circular sentiment. The sentiments were stamped onto the same red card used to back the image and were cut out using a circle punch.
A few words about me...time for an update! I'm a married stay at home mum with 2 children and I'm the right side of 50 (not that there's anything wrong with the other side and God willing I'll find out soon enough!) . I've been making cards for around 10 years now. I started when my daughter began receiving invites to birthday parties when she started pre-school (she's in secondary school now!). My card making goes in phases - I either seem to be very productive or very unproductive! My favourite cards to make are Christmas ones and I love that I found a hobby that allows me to indulge in a little bit of Christmas every day. It's not unusual for me to play Christmas tunes on the hottest day of the year - I think after 13 years my neighbours are used to it!
