Pootles Design Team Week 2 Quirky Critters

In case you hadn’t worked it out already…. I do like a fancy fold!  The vast majority have been around for ages – but I find they always look so different when you use a different stamp set, coloured card or Designer Series Paper (DSP)

This one is no exception.  It looks a lot more complicated than it is, but always brings a smile to the recipients face.  It also shows off the reverse of the paper – so often on a project I only get to showcase one side – this time you get a peek at the reverse too.


This quirky little bird has a great sentiment and the colouring was done using my watercolour pencils, with a little aquapainter to blend (covers a multitude of sins!)  Colouring is not my forte, but I think this has worked.  The flowers were quick to colour in (if a little blotchy)

With the card layers and insert it is quite bulky, so I recommend a ribbon tie to hold it together for posting.

I am still loving the freshness of the Lemon Lime Twist with Berry Burst!
