Challenge 126...

Challenge 126 for my Yahoo group is all about Animal Antics.

We have to create a card, scrapook page or projcet that features an animal - even bugs are allowed. 

I wasn't going to do it as I seemed to have so many ideas going around in my head that I was getting a little confused, but then wanted to try a Criss-Cross Card.  I've never done one of these previously.  I have seen them around "blog world" for some time.  As usual, I've adapted my card to fit the Australian standard envelope.

Once I put the Card together, I adhered Ribon around the bottom half & tied a bow.  I stamped my image onto a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Basic Black Ink.  I coloured the image using my Aqua Painter, Basic Grey & Rose Red Inks.  This was adhered to a piece of Rose Red Cardstock.  Using SU Dimensionals, the whole piece was placed on the front of the card just a little off centre.

For the inside of my card, I again stamped the image in the bottom right hand side on Very Vanilla Cardstock & coloured the same as the front.  I sponged Rose Red around the end of the Very Vanilla Cardstock using my SU Sponges & Pastels.  This piece was adhered to a piece of Pumpkin Pie Caardsock.  Using Rose Red Re-Inker, I dyed 2 flowers & kept one of them the natural colour.  I adhered these together & mounted top left hand side of the card ensuring that the flower was not too far over so that I couldn't slide the card into its pocket.  A Basic Pearl was stuck in the middle.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Pun Fun
Ink - Rose Red, Basic Grey, Basic Black
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red
DSP - Sweet & Sour Speciality
Ribbon - 5/8" Organza - Whisper White
Accessories - Multipurpose Glue, Basic Pearls, Flowers, SU Sponge, Aqua Painter, Pastels

Until next time, Enjoy!
