MAIN-41738.png Free Project: Our Teams' Favourite Projects!
Here we have publisher Lucie Dawson's favourite project, taken from Inspired by the Season back in September 2018!

 

Each month we give our contributors a challenge of using a photo, a scene to represent that month and see how it can inspire their card making.

This month, Faye made this beautiful design featuring a Copic wheat field and adorable field mouse.

Where can I buy it?
Stamps available from Dies to Die For


1 Create a 14.5cm square white card blank with the fold at the top. Cut Kraft card slightly smaller than the card front, distress the edges with a distressing tool or pair of scissors and attach to the card front.
2 Stamp the mouse (using a Mini MISTI if you wish) on white card using black ink. Keeping the mouse to the left, trim to measure 14cm square.
3 Using a make-up sponge and blue ink, sponge clouds over the top half of the panel. Colour the image with the Copics listed in the guide, then add white gel dots to the butterfly wings.
4 Stamp the mouse again on scrap paper and cut out to make a mask. Cover the first image with low tack tape. Use the different shades of Copics to make brush strokes behind the mouse to form the wheat.
5 Stamp the sentiment to the right of the mouse.
6 Distress the edges of the panel. Wrap cheesecloth around the bottom and secure the ends at the back. Tie twine twice around the cheesecloth, tying in a bow on the left. Fix to the centre of the Kraft card on the card front.
