Whiff of Joy Challenge 33 - Once Upon A Time In Merry England

Here is my 4th card in my series of Once Upon a Time cards using the Whiff of Joy Medieval collection stamps and also my entry into the Whiff of Joy Challenge 33 ...

Card size A5 - 21cm x 14.8 cm

Base up...

  • Stardream Pearlescent "Chocolate Brown" card
  • DP is from DCWV "Once Upon a Time" 8 x 8 pad
  • Leaf Frame stamp is from Alota Rubber Stamps, coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils, Sansador and Sakura Gelly Roll clear glaze pen. I stamped the frame twice, but cut out the leaves on the second stamp to mount on top of the leaves on the frame with 1mm foam pads.
  • The "bush" behind Charlotte I made from the Magnolia Tree with carved heart stamp from the Spring 2008 collection. I only inked up the leafy part of the tree and using a stamp positioner and masking, I stamped the image three times and coloured the with Derwents again.
  • Rogue Charlotte of course is from the Whiff of Joy Medieval collection and coloured the same as above. She was then cut out and mounted with 1mm foam pads.
  • The flower is from Prima Quick pick hydrangea Woodland, and the leaves are made with two different colour green Bazill card and Martha Stewarts' Frond and Branch punches. The frond leaves were scored with a fine embossing tool ant then the ends pinched.
  • The "Once Upon a Time" stamp is from Hampton Art Fairy Tale Stamp set.
  • The tag die cut is made with a Cuttlebug die. The ribbon and charm are from eBay.

I actually started making this card on Sunday and finished it yesterday, then I saw the challenge today and as it fitted the criteria decided to enter it into the challenge.

Thank you for looking and take care & keep smiling
