Little House On The Prairie

 

Earlier this year I was very lucky and won the challenge at Fashionable Stamping.My wonderful prize was a voucher for Flonzcraft, so of course I immediately browsed their stamps. They have some very lovely and unique stamps. As soon as I saw this girl stamp I immediately thought of Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie! It is one of mine and my Mother's favourite tv shows, so I  just  had to choose her, and then of course I needed the wagon to go with her too!

 

I decided to make a bendi card, it was fairly easy to make, if you have never made one you should give it a try! On the bottom level I added some layers of raffia.on the higher level I added some texture paste which I later painted. I watercoloured a background. After stamping the images with black Archival ink, I coloured them with watercolours. I fussy cut the lovely images and adhered them to the card. I stamped some leaves and cut them out, and added them to the scene.

I think it looks a little like a scene from Little House, it is going to be my Mothers Easter card.

Thank you for visiting today.

I made this card for the following challenges

Pride and Prejudice

 

This months theme at Indigoblu is All You Need Is Love.

One of English Literatures most famous romantic writers was Jane Austen. Amongst many other classic novels she of course wrote "Pride and Prejudice".I thought that it would be fitting to pay a her a special tribute, she did give us Mr Darcy after all!

You can read all the details about how I made this tribute on the Indigoblu Blog

Thank you so much for visiting.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
