The Stamping Bazaar.....Bikkies Discovery

Hi Susan here....

Each Monday on The Stamping Bazaar Blog we showcase all the creations made by the design team for the coming week using an image designed by Marina Neira for The Stamping Bazaar Store.

Each day of the week you will be getting inspiration from of our talented team. The DT are going to show you on their own blogs how they made their creations, and you will be able to follow the links to the image in the Store and for the next days DT member throughout the week.

 Today is my day to show you what I have made.....

Now for my card....

The idea for this card came from the ABC Christmas Challenge, Dorte has made a fabulous tutorial for this technique, I loved it, go and check it out and try will be surprised with the results!!
My backing paper is from a collection by Nancy Watts....beautiful delicate design I couldn't resist using it.
I have used a brown and green piece of card for the side border and punched a design on each side, I used the same brown card to back the topper and the 'hot spot'.
My ribbon and pearls are from our local market. I love this seam binding, I actually coloured this with inks to match my colour scheme as I only had a dark green in my stash...I was really pleased with the results. The flowers I have used are from Hobby Craft the leaves I made using a punch.

My image has been designed by Marina Neira and it is called 'Bikkies Discovery', available from The Stamping Bazaar Store, this is one of two new designs in the store. The technique is called 'Hot Spot' and I have given a link to the tutorial above. I gently inked the edges of the topper and coloured the Hot Spot with promarkers.
