Bagpuss

What a difference a day makes!  Warm and sunny yesterday, then cold and rainy today.  A good excuse for escaping to my craft room to make a card for the Less is More challenge, which this week is to use snippets.  Chrissie is celebrating a special birthday today - 70 years young, and the guest designer is none other than Di, the snippets queen from Pixie's Snippets Playground.  
I decided to use a smaller Bagpuss stamp today, you can see the larger one HERE.  I cut the paw print border with a border punch on a piece of white card, then stamped the image and sentiment.  Bagpuss is rather magical, so I thought this was a fitting sentiment to use.  I coloured the image with a pink and clear Wink of Stella glitter pen, to give a bit of sparkle.  However, Bagpuss is pink and cream and the cream stripes were too white, so I went over the white with an ivory Promarker and the glitter still came through.  Phew - not the disaster I thought it was going to be!  A snippet of pink card was attached down the left-hand side of a card blank and the decorated white card attached over the top.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  3. Oh Liz your Bagpuss is so cute and love the way you have coloured him, also the paw print punched border is just great used here and love the sentiment too. My hubby bought me a little Bagpuss many years ago and he still sits on top of a little storage basket in the bedroom. x
