More of Funky Forest

If you saw my previous post you'll know I've been having a play with the wheels.  This one is called Funky Forest and my friend left it with me after our crafting session yesterday so I could play some more.  

The original card I made yesterday for less is more is shown next as a rescue card.  This one is my second attempt at this design.  The challenge is to make a one layer card with a frame. 

I used a Whisper White card base and masked off an area to roller the trees in Old Olive.  I then made a dotty frame using an Old Olive marker pen.  The center was sponged with Old Olive and Real Red.  

Thanks was stamped below in Old Olive from the So Happy For You set. 

And here is my rescue card.  I cut out the central image and mounted it onto Old Olive card.  The was placed onto a Whisper White background using dimensionals with the sentiment stamped below. This was then attached to an Old Olive card base. 

 I like the way that they have both come out.  Hope wherever you are you are having a great day and finding some time to craft. x

Hi Aileen
Wow your cards are stunning. I love the colour you added. I was to scared to add anything else. LOL

Anyways...thanks for commenting on my blog and I am glad it gave you a chuckle. I guess it went with your morning coffee over there.

I saw your card on Less is More too. What a great bunch of gals they have there.

Great image, and the red contrast colouring really brings out trees, while the hand drawn frame is so in keeping and brings the whole thing together.
