April inspiration by Nicky

Here is my inspiration for you today. Its a cute and sparkly card for a little girl. I hope you all like it :)

 I made this card using the 'Crazy Cat Lady' image from Cute As A Button. Find it at the shop link below.

Here are some step by step instructions of how I made the card.

First I coloured the cats and her hair, as i knew the colours i wanted to use for those.

Then I chose some card, matching paper and a card blank that matched the size of the image and coloured the image to suit the coloured card I chose. I chose the red patterned paper because the swirls on the paper matched the ball or wool shape/pattern.

I used the following Promarkers:

Clothes, flower and shoes- Orchid, Amethyst and Yellow.
Skin - Dusky Pink and Blush.
Wings - Pale Pink.
Hair - Sandstone and Cinnamon.

I cut the image to a suitable size, chose a 5" x 6.5" card blank, mounted the plain red card onto the card blank using double sided tape to be 6mm smaller than the card blank on both sides. I cut the red patterned paper to be 6mm smaller than the red card and used double sided tape to stick it onto the plain red card.

I mounted the image onto the same plain red card used on the base layer and stuck them together with doublesided tape. I mounted the image onto the patterned paper using foam tape.

To finish i cut out an LOTV sentiment to add to the bottom RH corner.
