Cat’lin Sparrow

0 14 Comments

Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Blog Challenge #381 that starts today.

The theme for this challenge is to use something square but you must use either promarkers, flexmarkers, aquamarkers or trias on your work.

I have used a digi stamp image from Knitty Kitty called Cat’lin Sparrow (Pirate Cat) digi no 61.

Cut a piece from blue card measuring 15.5 cms by 11 cms.
Cut the digi topper to measure 15 cms by 10.5 cms.
Matt and layer the topper to the blue card.
Then matt and layer this set to the white card using foam pads.
Attach to the card base on the left using foam pads slightly over lapping the square die cuts.

Next using the Love The Bones Of You Die Set cut the skull doily die out of white card.
Cut three skulls away from the doily.

Using the small square die cut a square out of blue card.
Using the tiny square die cut a square out of one of the papers.
Matt and layer together and add a skull die cut.
Attach to the bottom left of the topper.

Then using a couple of toppers from the Pirate Topper Sheet add a pirate sign to the top right of the topper.
