In The Nederlands we celebrate
It is a children's thing in the evening.
When it is dark they come round the houses
with their paper lantern and sing a song in
exchange for candy. You find all the background
information here. So i made this card:
Of course this card is also for the color challenge
on day 11 of The Daily Marker.
Here some background information
about how I made the card:
I colored the background paper with red, orange and
brown distress ink. When done I sprinkled some
water drops on the paper. Yes it is Autumn and
wind and rain is very often during these evenings.
Tonight we are lucky: cold but dry.
Next I took this leaves embossing folder and
ran this background paper through the big shot.
Because the children come round to sing their songs
I added a piece of Tim Holtz musical tissue paper.
This image is a color page for children that I downloaded
and colored with pencil. Then scanned and made to
the size I could use for my card. The paper lanterns
where added on.
And here you see how I made them. First you punch
out a circle, then you run the circle through the crimper
and add some ink all around. With foam tape it
fastened them to the picture. Between te foam tape
and the lantern I added a piece of embroidery thread.
Inspired by pinterest I made these treaties for
the children who come by this evening.
Pillow box bats,
pillow box minions and mummy mandarins.
My grandson is having a wonderful evening!
He is singing the song with the text you see on the card:
Text typed and printed with the computer.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
