The Squirrel and the Fox DT #50 Whimsical

Morning, all! It's another challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox. One of the gret things about being on DT is seeing all the amazing entries for a Challenge, I get so much inspiration from all your submissions! (usually along the lines of 'I wish I could do that, too!')

This time we are looking for your Whimsical creations! our wonderful sponsor is Make it Crafty, source of wonderful digis and fabulous chipboard makes, and Zoe is offering $15 Aus to spend in her store.

But that's not all! if you use a Make It Crafty image for your card and you add MIC to the end of your name on mr Linky you'll be entered into an extra draw to gain a prize! How great is that?!

I have been a fan for quite a while, and I already had the ideal image on my laptop. It is Metallic Flowers - I think this is whimsical, don't you?


I used Promarkers to colour the image. The background paper is a snippet from my stash, it's probably by Nitwits. The flowers are die-cut from an aluminium coca cola can, using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, coloured with Ranger alcohol inks in Stream, Aqua, Terracotta and Gold.

I used a Cogs nestie for the image mat, the card is very shiny, it is from a selection by Payper Box which I got from the Ally Pally Show 3 years ago! The flourishes are cut with another Sissix die, Elegant Flourish, using a snippet from my stash.

Do go and see the great creations my teamies have made at The Squirrel and the Fox and have a go at making a Whimsical card yourself!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

A fab card. Loved all the interesting elements you have going on, and your image was beautiful, and beautifully colored. Great recycling idea using the cans to cut flowers. I smiled at your comment about seeing the challenge entries. I'm of that mindset at each blog I visit & see what the cardmaker has created. Such inspiration...and I keep trying to improve! TFS
