Cupcake Craft Challenge - Make a Scene




Here's my DT card for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenges which this week is to "make a scene". To be honest, this stumped me a bit, other than kicking, screaming and throwing things about (lol), wasn't sure what I was going to do. Anyway, I decided to go for the A Tree for All Seasons SU set, stamped on acetate with stazon, then stamped again on various different cardstock and papers, cut out and stuck onto the acetate. I then made the card blank from a piece of blue, and cut out the apertures with my nesties, which was a lot easier than I was expecting! I wanted to decorate the front of the card a bit more, but this card took me two days (in and out of the craft room at any given opportunity without the kids help!), so it didn't get tarted up as much as I'd have like.

Stamps used: A Tree for all Seasons, Circle of Friendship, stitching stamp
Inks used: stazon - brown, blue, green
Colouring method: n/a
Cardstock used: various bits and pieces
Other Embellishments: SU buttons and thread
Tools: nesties, scissors and patience!
