Triple Image Card

I fancied having a go at other digital images other than the Charmed downloads and purchased three lovely ones from Mo Manning. I merged the images to create a little scene and coloured it in with my Copic markers. This is one of my all-time favourite cards I think, it's very heavy as it's layered with plain and patterned cardstock and a size A5 so quite big; a really substantial card.

I wrapped a plain cardstock card in patterned double-sided paper inside and out - Basic Grey June Bug - that is why it became quite heavy, and I must say I love that.

I have no fancy set-up for taking pictures, so it's pot luck really how they turn out and I sometimes need to take loads to get a decent one. I couldn't get a good one for this card, and it wasn't for the lack of trying! So it's better IRL than it looks here ;-)

I'll enter this into a couple of challenges:
Allsorts: Birthdays
One Stop: Summer Breeze

OK, so you are going to get quite a few pictures as I don't know which one to choose, as per usual. None of the photos show the true richness of the colours.

I drew stitching around the edges inside and out with a black Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen.

The inside of my card:

The words on the tree branch and bag are rub-ons -The gorgeous metal corners and black & white ribbon is K&Co Life's Journey - red crystals are also K&Co, Citronella I think - Paper is Basic Grey June Bug - Hip Hip Hooray wording on the front, Happy Birthday wording inside the card, the two balloons on the front and the cupcake inside are all from the new K&Co Happy Birthday 2U collection .

Thanks for not shouting at me for showing a million and one pictures of the same thing ha ha ha.

Bye for now xx
