This is a card I made for my two grand-sons (not at the same time!). One was in Australia and one was here in England, so no comparing.
I used my favourite lady, Jayne Nestorenko's, stamps. This time from her Cute Companions range, Playtime. I love this set of stamps, full of childhood nostalgia.
I stamped all the characters I wanted from the set onto Centura card. Then I painted them, using my water-colour pencils.
The tricky bit was cutting them all out as some of the items, especially the train wheels were very fiddly. I think they came out OK though.
The best bit was placing all the characters in different poses until I was satisfied. I then used Collall decoupage glue raising them up off the page.
The backing paper comes from the Cute Companions CD from Crafters Companion and the stamp is Woodware Circular Greetings.
I was very pleased with the card.
Thank you for looking
