A Little Late......... MAWTT#48

Good morning everyone all be it a day late. This week it was Heidi's turn to choose the challenge & she decided to go for a theme this week rather than a sketch. So the theme this week is Fancy Folds. We have some very good friends of mine sponsoring us this week......Stitchy & Hope Jacare from Stitchy Bear Stamps. If you hurry over to the shop you will catch the last few days of their 50% sale which ends on Monday!!

Well I have to say I had a complete nightmare getting this card made this week!!!! I knew exactly what I wanted to do but it just kept going wrong. Firstly I spent an hour colouring the image only to finish it & decide I didn't like the shades of the colours I had used & that I felt the image was too small. Then I made up the card ready to put the image on only to discover the image was too big!!! So I had to create half a card so I'm afraid there are no real fancy folds on my card.
I coloured my image in using Copics & my gold marker pen. The layout of my card was meant to be using the Joy Fold which I discovered earlier on in the week while commenting on some cards. Here is a closer look at the image I have used

I found some gorgeous oriental paper that I had bought at a show a couple of years ago hidden in a drawer so I added this to the inside of my card along with some Kate Knight papers that I really should use more often.

Don't forget that you have until 8pm Wednesday 2nd June to enter your card into this challenge. I will be back tomorrow with another card for Craftycat xx Clare x
