TMITA - Lets get fuzzy!!

Hi Blogger's,

It's been a couple of days but I've been busy getting ready for another blog hop for GKD. Interested? ...... well you'll have to come back on Saturday 3pm (Aussie Time). That's Friday 27th 10pm CST....I believe.

Today's card is for TMITA Magical Monday. Nina has given us the cutest Moose digi to play with this week with the additional challenge Let's get Fuzzy. So felt, fibres etc was the order of the day.

I sized my download in my word processing package which, on this super duper Mac is 'Pages'. It's very easy, if you haven't tried a digital image have a go. Copy and paste the image onto your documents then you just click on the image and you'll see small boxes around it. If you click and hold the mouse over the bottom right hand corner box, drag in and out you can see the sizes for length and width. I usually use around 8cm for my cards, though this one is only 7cm to allow for the fuzzy flowers. Why don't I show you a picture!!!!

It's an overcast day here today and this was taken inside so sorry it's not the best. You'll need to click on it!!!

My base card is Apple Green, with the bottom corners rounded.
American Craft - Mocha was used for the next layer but first I printed the sentiment using the computer. The next step was to emboss above the sentiment using the Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder, and then the bottom corners were rounded.
The image was coloured with Koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil.
Nestabilities square dies were used to cut the image and the scalloped pale lemon matt, which was pierced in each scallop.
I attached a strip of KaiserScrapbook Fozz Felt flowers to one side of the card and used some topaz gems in the centre of the flowers. I've also tied some fibres from my embroidery box around the Mocha cad before attaching it to the Apple Green base.
To complete the card I doodled all around the outside edge.

Such a cute image......have you been over to Nina's for your copy? I'm off to see what everyone has come up with this week. Hope you get to join in.........

Thanks for stopping by till next time........

Edit: I think I should get an extra chance at this challenge for my FUZZY photo!!!!! LOL
