Scrapology October Card Challenge

This month, Sue Roberts (AKA Doogle007) challenged the team on Scrapology to use eyelets on their cards.

Although I own quite a few eyelets they are not something that I use very much in my crafting - either on scrapbook layouts of cards, so it was indeed a challenge to come up with a card which incorporated them in an imaginative way.

After two attempts I came up with this card using some very old papers from the BasicGrey 'Colour Me Silly' collection which was released in 2006 (wow 5 years ago!!!) and has now been retired.

I decided to accentuate the circles on the frogs bodies with eyelets and also added some wobble eyes. I layered the frogs on 3D foam to add some depth and also machine stitched round the outside of the card.

Before making the frog card I had a go at a card using a digital stamp called 'Ladybug Flower Tower' from Pink Cat Studios.

I coloured the image using Promarkers and then accentuated the spots on the ladybirds with eyelets as well as adding eyelets to the corners of the image. The papers were from a DCWV 'Scrapbook Kit in a Stack - All Occasion'.

Do have a look at the rest of the team's card on Scrapology and if you have a go yourself at making a card incorporating eyelets you could be in with a chance of winning a whole heap of eyelets kindly supplied by Anita.
