FLASH YOUR FREEBIES ...PART 2....

Hi....last week Paula from Pollycraft had an additional challenge,to use one of any of the freebies she's given away..and she said there was around 40!...make a card/project with it,link it to her blog and she would then email you with another free image...to use in the second part of the challenge...well the free image was this cute little fellow and the challenge is think "GREEN".


When i saw the theme today i knew i had to make a shaped card with it....i enlarged the image and printed it out twice on two different greens of DCWV textured cardstock.
I scored and folded a third piece of card the same as the paler green,stuck the printed image to it,leaving some over hang at the top and cut round it...I then cut parts of the image from the darker green and stuck it to the base image....paper piecing really but with cardstock.
I added alittle colour to his cheek with some chalk.
Beaded wire,charm,bow,pearl and wobbly eye from stash.
To give you an idea of size it fits nicely into a 6" square envelope....i didn't want to add anything else to the image so i've made a tiny card out of the scraps of the same card,the sentiment is Hero Arts...flower from stash.
Just a fun thing but i like it!
That's it for now....oh i forgot to mention Paula is letting you pick another freebie from her shop if you enter this second part :0)...can't be bad!
Take care
