Paper kites for my card at My Time to Craft

Good morning all

There's a great new challenge over at My time to Craft this week

Use newspaper or pages from a book

I really enjoyed this challenge - probably because its a wee bit different.  I didn't want to go down the paper flowers route as I felt sure everyone would do the same - but if you have a look at the MTTC challenge blog - you'll see just how original my teamies over there are!

I used this cute image by Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps called Want to fly a kite available here
I thought the newspaper kites would work well for this challenge and I made them very simply by cutting them out of newspaper by hand and cutting and colouring scraps of card for the crossed bars, I also cut bows to go on the kite strings.  I really like this cute little guy - he's a real little tubs!

This is what I did....

Image - Want to fly a kite - by Chrissy Armstrong at Whimsy stamps
Coloured with copics
Papers - K & Co Hopscotch boy
Twine and back pearls from my stash
Sentiment tags - LOTV
