Card making with my granddaughter
For my first card, I coloured my sunflower image with coloured pencils and added a bit of a background while I was at it. I trimmed the edge using "Deckle" decorative scissors, layered it onto a yellow rectangle which I distressed with my scissors. I mounted this element to my embossed card front
My second card features black and white decorative paper which we found on the inside of a used envelope when we were shredding paper for papermaking. I coloured the image with colured pencils, added faux stitching to the edges with a fine tipped Sharpie marker and layered it over my decorative paper which is layered onto black and adhered to a white card front. This image is from Beccy's. I left some place on the bottom in case I decided to add a greeting over and above the quote provided with the image.
We had such a great time and did a wide variety of activities - went for walks, did some baking and cooking, made a few cards and lots of small sheets of handmade paper, played with Lego and Jenga blocks. She is a wonderful little girl and I am fortunate to now live close enough to have her visit. We will be doing it again!!
