Whiff of Joy DT card - my little ark

This was originally going to be my blog hop card last Saturday, but it was only after it was all finished and photographed I realised I had forgotten to use the little lion that was my blog candy. I am soooo dense! So I had to quickly whip up the side step card instead.

Anyway, here's the card that never was lol. I sketched out a template, cut it out of dark brown card then decided it was naff. So I chopped up some lighter brown card into strips, distressed the edges with Walnut Stain ink and then just stuck it on with random joins to try and resemble wood. The portholes are just circles punched from gold and black mirri card.  The roof tiles are just punched circles (3/4” Stampin Up punch) that I overlapped and lifted a bit. 

Here’s a pic of the card open, I think you can see the texture of the roof tiles better in this shot.

I really enjoyed making this one, so different from my usual overload of ribbons, pearls and flowers lol.

Recipe:
Stamps: All Whiff of Joy new Party Animals release, coloured with distress inks and H2O's
Tools: Nowt much bar the circular punches lol.

Thanks for stopping by,
