... which fits into the pocket on the front of my card, I have turned a part of Michelle's sketch inside out! The second image I have used is the lovely sentiment on the front.
The third image is tucked away inside my card.
My background is printed out and covered with 'glue stick', to give it a painted effect. I have layered the 'big red bus' (one icon) and Big Ben clock tower (second icon) over the glued surface. Next I cut out and added the children and also a cut out clock face. To finish I added some clock hands and mounted my 'picture' onto chipboard and pearlex coated red card.
Hope you can join in!
...and here is the card I made...
This lovely Digi stamp had such a tropical feel about it that I just had to add the brilliant colours of the tropics, and of course a flower to match!

This is an eclipse tin covered in beads and little embellishments. I have painted over everything with light gold Jo Sonja paint then added three different coloured iridescent (Jo Sonja's) paints randomly over the base colour. I have drilled a small hole in the lid and threaded wire through to hold a bead in place. Lastly I added another embellishment, glued in a tiny gem, and added gold embossing , which I have stamped into , just to create a little more texture and interest. And very last I have sprayed the whole thing with two coats of lacquer to ensure everything stays where it was put!!
...as a thank you to Carol for the gorgeous gift she sent me...see it HERE I unleashed my jewelry making tools, and skills...which are somewhat limited, and tried hard to make a bracelet. My inspiration come from the beautiful Jewelry Renate made for me. See it HERE.
