You're Not Alone.....(insert scary or happy noises here!)

Hi! With what was possibly the weirdest title for a post...I shall begin!
I wanted to tell a story, collecting together some of the stamp sets I had and creating something just a little more unusual.
Don't you sometimes find that you can't get the perfect sentiment? well, this was definitely a case in point, but the story began with snow caps..or duck feet to be exact.
I was sifting through some of my Avery Elle supplies and came back to this die set; 'Snow Caps Elle-ments'
I wanted to do something fun with the cable car but kept looking at the snow cap parts to go on the mountains. At the same time I had the Storybook set out too.
I looked at the duck and then the snow caps suddenly looked like duck 'footprints'. So I started playing with the dies and doing some colouring
By using the leftover cut out parts, I created a stencil and coloured through with copics/Shin Han markers. When you place them back together and shift the top layer down slightly, you get a fab effect
I ummed and ahhed for a while and realised that the card would only make sense with a sentiment and so I needed to make my own using the tiny alpha set Elle's Alphas
Truth be told, I hadn't time to line them all up exactly, so a slightly random placement obscures any slightly out letters! 
I trimmed out some grass from patterned paper
Lastly, I added a couple of cloud outlines to give the idea of a sky without actually adding in more 'clutter' to the card
Add a little glitter around the clouds and all done!
Hopefully the title makes more sense now- it's either a card to cheer someone up because they're not alone, or watch out...you're not alone!!

Just another aside- the Winnie & Walter section of the store has been restocked- you might find the ones you've been waiting for. I created some cards with this set for the Rerun challenge over at the Winnie & Walter blog so thought I'd share one or two here to remind you to check that section out too!

Well , have a lovely Tuesday- and don't worry, you're not alone, you've us lot to keep you company!!

  3. I think duck needs to be very careful now! Awesome way to stretch the dies - must remember to try this Karen x
