TT110 'On the Move' - Happy Birthday


Hi, it's Tuesday - hope you're having a great week so far!!

It's time to 'Get Moving' with Tuesday Throwdown!! Our theme is 'On the Move' - break out all your travel/transport themed supplies - animal or mechanical and join us for another fabby challenge!!

We also have some exciting news - we have some new DT members joining us!! They have some wonderful creations for you today, so please stop by and leave them some love!!

BerniCarolChristineJacquelineLarelynTabitha and Wendy!

The DT were all lucky enough to work with some great images this week, courtesy of our sponsor, 

I have used the little bunny image 'S.S. Hoppity' to create a kind of tri-fold/stepper card.  My aim was to make him look as though he is rowing along the bank of the River Thames (I had 'The Wind in The Willlows' book in mind as I was making this card LOL!)


I did a little paper piecing on his little shirt and his boat and the rest is coloured using Copic Markers.  I created the background using Basic Grey's 'Out of Print' paper for the grassy river bank and smart tartan background.  The clouds are taken from another 'Robyn's Fetish' image, 'It's a Beary Nice Day'. I simply printed them, ran a copic marker around the edge and embossed using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.


I finished by stamping 'happy birthday' and added some dark green seam binding and natural button twine along the bottom of the card.

I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen today and don't forget that you can see more projects from the rest of the Tuesday Throwdown DT by visiting the challenge blog.
