Guest DT for Gingerloft Challenge

Good Morning!

I've scheduled this post for today, so I hope it works....

A few weeks ago I won a challenge at Gingerloft
and part of the prize was a guest spot on the design team for the challenge this week:)
Tami sent me this little koala image to use.
Isn't it cute !

and ....
they're giving it away free for you to use in this week's challenge :)

You can download it here.


I printed the image on card and coloured it with Copics.
I inked around the edges with Old Paper distress ink and matted it on white card.
Using a square of  bazzill (Cocoa) cardstock I embossed it with a wood effect embossing folder.
Then I tore it roughly around the edges.
Using a Cropadile I punched half circles at the top and bottom of  the base  card and tied hemp twine around it.
I printed the digi sentiment (also from Gingerloft) and cut the circles with Nestabilities,
then adhered them to the card with foam pads.


I hope you like it and take a minute to check out what the Gingerloft Design Team have made :)

Thank you for the lovely comments you've all been leaving me.
I really enjoy reading them, and some are very funny :)

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day.
Take care :)
