Dutch Dare #3

Dutch Dare Card Challenge #3: 3 buttons and 3 ribbons!



You know that Yoga Mama from Inkadinkado that I sent with my PIF? Well, I'd never done much with her but smear her with Copics, when I got the idea to PAPER PIECE HER! Doh!

I also took the photo with a different camera inside of a homemade light box deal...didn't turn out too badly, though it needs tweaking and another light source.



card base is PTI kraft, Patterned paper is Making Memories Cheeky, Koh I Noors and Prismacolor (for the fleshtones), Offray ribbon, unknown buttons, American Crafts rubon sentiment


Visit My Etsy Shoppe!!
Thanks!

This card is lovely, I have been looking at your blog, and all your work is delightful. What a clever girl you are.
Hope you manage to steal some time to yourself, I know how that feels. I could spend all day everyday in my craft room, but they wont let me!!!
