I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Double Challenge Card

At last managed to take part in not one but two challenges - woooohooooo!

I decided to have a play with my kraft card which has been in my drawer for ages (hangs head in shame). I'm so impressed with the result of the white ink on the kraft card - sharp but subtle - If you know what I mean LOL. I stamped the backgrounds using Whipped Cream ink pad from Elzybells and distressed the edges using pink chalk ink. The white highlight around the bear was an experiment with my opaque white pen. I drew around the stamped image and smudged out using baby wipe to spread and soften the line.

I saw the theme on Cute Card Thursday #110 - Make your own, so decided this card fits the bill and then saw Elzybells Challenge #42 - It's all about Kraft so...... hey presto fits that too.

Image: Elzybells
Stamps for backgrounds: Unknown
Medium: Promarkers
Tools: X-cut butterfly punch, Ranger Ink distressing tool and pad.

Hi Jane, I love what you've done with your kraft card. I'm ashamed to say I also have some that has never been used.
