Colour Magic Card



Afternoon Everyone,

Here is my colour magic card, completed as a challenge for my Rubber Bombshells Blogging Group. I wasn't happy with the front piece, but it IS going to a little girl who loves flowers so it will appeal to her, if not to me.

I haven't made one of these for ages so it was fun to revisit the construction. I do mine slightly differently to what you will find online, as in I anchor my image so it cannot be pulled free of the card itself. I didn't like the instructions where this happens...so I had to change them. Fancy me changing things!

Stamps: Print Blocks Girls, SU Upsy Daisy Wording Inks: StazOn Black Cardstock: Bazzill Other: Acetate, DSFT, Paper Flowers, Brads, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities Long Rectangles, Gold Peel Offs, Stamp Positioner
