Not Mushroom On A Sunday.

I made one of these mushroom/toadstools a while ago and used it on a deco swap page and liked it so much I knew I wanted to do another some day.So when I saw a challenge for a different shaped card I thought it'd be a good excuse to make another.I think I can count this as different even though it's only an add on to a card.


The toadstool started off as 3 cream circles cut using my Cuttlebug and revolution nesting circles and 1 brown,by placing the die back over the die cuts I was able to remove sections of the circles giving nice clean lines. I used a brown sakura gel pen to roughly draw lines from the stalk area of the underside of the cap and used distress inks to give the appearance of dimension to the cream shapes. I shaped and added the stalk using a foam pad,I also shaped the "cap" and added a foam pad to the front middle edge and glue around the outside edge. My lovely Gorjuss girl is a little bird told me,which I stamped and coloured using copics,I then cut her out and sat her on top using another foam pad.
I'm going to use this for the following challenges:-
Wee Memories challenge 20,In the forest,
Allsort's week 67,From the garden or park,
Crafty Emma Challenge 1,Anything goes,
OCC colour challenge,
Mami Doodles Challenge 8,Be creative with card shape,
Stamp with Fun Challenge 73,Card for a girl,
Well,that's me for today,I hope you've had a good weekend,
thanks for stopping by,

Hi Julie, this is great use of the circle dies, and wondered if you would like me to put it in my F.F.G. in the cupboard? Not sure if you are a follower, that and posting a link back to the Cupboard is the only condition, I will do the rest and link back to your blog. Thanks for your support and for leaving a comment, unfortunately I could not find the sunflower you mentioned. thanks again, ikki
