Delicious Doodles Challenge - 5 April 2013 - More than one fold

Another Friday has whizzed around and it's time for another challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  This week Vicky has challenged us to "more than one fold".
I um'd and ah'd at what to do and decided to go for a stepper rocker.  It took some while to get it to look right but I got there in the end.  For my card I have used the Delicious Doodles image called "Cruel Cruella".  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and used blue Pan Pastel for the sky for a very light feeling.  I used some Summertime Designs papers and printed them straight onto my A4 card, using a gingham on the front and spots on the back.  Many people sell or give backing papers for people to use, some are 6x6, some are 8x8 but some like Summertime Designs which print A4.  This is brilliant when printing direct onto the card you want to use.  I have made some book flowers by die-cutting the flower shapes, colouring half of the layers with Tim Holtz's Fired Brick distress ink and my Inkylicious brush and the remainder with my Black Soot distress ink.  I have scrunched all the layers and held together with a Tim Holtz long brad - these are wonderful for things like this as I've used 12 layers per flower and normal brads wouldn't hold it.  I shall have to keep an eye out for some more of these longer brads.  I have finished the card off with a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, raffia ribbon, flower buttons and my own homemade black-and-white spotty button to match the dalmatian (I used my black Promarker to add the dots to a white button).
