ABC X for Xtra Special

We are sponsored at ABC this time by Bunny Zoe with a £10 gift certificate for her store, and also by The Paper Shelter with some of their fabulous digital images, one of which I have used on my card this time.

Our theme is Xtra Special, so we’d like to see creations made for those special occasions in our life. (eg. Wedding, New Baby, Birthday, Engagement, etc), and I have gone for a new baby card.


My image called Enchanted Dream was coloured with my copics and promarkers. I am annoyed at my spots on the mushroom. I accidentally coloured them in with a dark red! I meant them to be white. I used a white pigment ink pen and when I first went over them they were a lovely bright white, but the pigment ink must have sucked up the red beneath it…… NOTE to self, don’t use white ink over a very very dark colour, in fact don’t make the mistake in the first place.

My background paper is from Bearly Mine Designs, and the fancy mat and background mat are cut from some gorgeous touchy feely velvet effect paper from K & Co, which has been sitting in my stash for even longer than the besom on my earlier card! Another NOTE to self, stop hording and start using!

Because the lavender paper is SO lush and because I didn’t want to just waste it behind the background paper I cut the die cut from the centre of it before sticking it all down. A sentiment created on my pc, and some frantage finished it off.

I am entering this into the following:-
