Guest Designer – Lil ‘ Man D – Thank You card and Bookmark
You may have seen my posts on Facebook last week about my lil man and his first watercolor project…. well he was at it again tonight 🙂
My little man was given an early birthday present last weekend by a lady who works with hubby, so this is her Thank You card and a little book mark for her to use in her Bible, or other reading matter. Now it goes without saying, since he is only 4 …. that he had a little help …SURPRISE !! lol. But the painting is all him.
He may be a crafty wee soul, but this mommy isn’t ready to let him lose with a laminator and glue all by himself .. my sanity is questionable at the best of times .. but not THAT bad haha. Unlike someone we won’t mention by name who’s grandson glued himself up trying to apply “lotion” to his legs whilst visiting her craft room last week lol…. sorry.. I am still giggling over that one .. my bad.
The images he colored are :
The card is a hot pink 5×6.5″ from a multicolor pack at Michaels
A background layer of rough cut 65lb black Recollections card from the value packs
The image is printed on Canson Mix Media Paper on my Epson Eco Tank and also had a rough cut edging. I added the sentiment “There is beauty in creation” and a border to the image before printing. This was also foam popped on a Darice adhesive foam sheet and attached using a double side tape. The card layers were attached with Zig Photo Tape and the Sentiment which was a cheapie import die was attached with Tombow Aqua.
The Book mark is backed with a light tan 65lb card with a hint of a border showing behind the image cut from the front, and I attached a tassle from a value pack at Michaels. I added a cute little bead that I got in a happy mail package from Francesca at Cute As A Button when she very kindly shared her destash items with the DT team 🙂 It says “Always” on one side and “Believe” on the other… pretty appropriate for a Bible Bookmark.
I hope you like it
🙂 One Proud Mommy
