Accordion Style

Time for a new challenge and a new set of the Alphabet over on the Butterfly Blog.We are starting off with the letter A
#144 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with A for Accordion Fold Card.

Here are my inspiration cards for you.  As usual you will find the tutorials for making these cards over on the Butterfly Blog under the tab Card Shapes. We are getting a nice collection of card shapes on there now and you are free to browse and make cards from the instructions  given.

This card uses Version I 

I am using from the wheel:
Accordion Style Card shape
Theme: Pattern paper x2
Colour: Apple Blossom (pale pink)

 Papers used are digital from Buddly crafts. Pink design and butterflies by Eline Pelinkof Meadow papers 2.
 The digi image is also from Buddly Crafts by Lilyboo designs called mushroom girl.  I have coloured using my Graph'it pens and then gone over with my clear wink of stella pen. she looks lovely and sparkly IRL but not showing up here. I fussy cut her out first before colouring! The silver stickers are from my stash.

This card uses Version II 

I am using from the wheel:
Accordion Style Card shape
Colour: Apricot
Colour: Aquamarine

 The paper used is a digital from Buddly crafts from their Bits of Ivory collection Blue fluttering.
 The image is again from Buddly Crafts  by Lilyboo designs called Fun in the Swing.  I don't usually go for cute but I just fell in love with these images and a few more so they accidently fell in my basket prior to check out.  coloured using my Graph'it pens and then edged with a gold gel pen to match the gold sticker edging and sentiment from my stash.

I hope I have given you lots of ideas and that you will come and play with the new challenge which is running for 3 weeks. This gives me time to rest my shoulder between having to  sit at my main  computer. Blogger seems to have forgotten all about me (for which I am grateful as can't cope with learning new tricks at the moment) and hasn't flipped me over to the new Version yet.

Stay Safe and Well

Brenda in IN said...

Love both those sweet little girl images and those papers. The folds are awesome on all of them. Do you remember when we were sending jokes what the one was that said something about that rhymes with something, then no it doesn't. I remember telling my granddaughter that and I laughed so hard at her. I've been trying to go back and find it, but no luck. Don't stress out you shoulder looking back. I just hoped you remembered the joke.

Jenny L said...

Hi Mrs A,

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
