Easel? Easy!


So I pretty much, started, and finished my very first easel card last night. I enjoyed it, it was different from the norm. but it really did make me miss my craft robo, just for the ease of cutting my papers for my card, id have loved some fancy edging too but hand cutting that may have driven me to a breakdown!

Anyway, I digress. I did specifically make an easle card so I could enter KennyK's challenge blog this week. It was probably a 'walk before you can run' moment. but I love a challenge and overall im happy with it. especially as im still working with limited stash!

So enough of the talk! time for some action!

Pics below. I used some generic white card to make the folds. i coloured my KennyK image with my Promarkers. added a bit of bling to her guitar, and also added a flower tattoo on her arm to pimp her up a bit. I printed and hand cut the sentiment and coloured with markers, papers and card were all random stash scraps, flower was also from my stash and I used Candi to hold the card in place and in the corners

Ill be entering this card into the following challenges:
KennyK - Easel Cards
