Stepping up to the challenge.

Sponsored by All Dressed Up

 (using "Sally and Charlie" from OddballArt )
As soon as I saw this image I knew I wanted to use it with a seaside theme.
*I know Charlie is a dragon, but I thought he'd make a great inflatable*
 I found a collection of seaside toppers in my 
Hunkydory stash.

To make the double easel base card;
I took a piece of A4 card stock,
scored to make an A5 card.
Scored again half way across the front panel...
 then cut from the centre fold to the outer edge at about
a third of the length.
 I used a single piece of backing card to decorate the base...
 cutting borders to create stoppers and 
selecting a beach hut scene topper for the larger panel.
 Again it was a simple matter of selecting matching 
 promarkers to colour the image. 
 *sampling the colours before using*
 Pretty awesome match :D
 Then just a matter of adding foam pads and glue
 to fix the topper and image in place.
 I set the stoppers at different positions to add extra 
 And just a hint of glitter on Charlie for fun :D

Enjoy :D XXX
