And a very early morning it is too! Too early for me! lol!
I think I was a bit premature the other day in saying that the weather had picked up here as a bit later on the heavens opened and it has stayed wet ever since - we even had hail yesterday too :( Hopefully we will get a summer at some point and it will probably be when school starts again!
Anyway, you're probably wondering why I've posted so early...
Well, I'm very excited to get to announce that I've been accepted onto a second design team! The lovely Mari has accepted me onto the DT of the Creative Card Crew challenge blog!! Me and 7 other lovely ladies and our first challenge is today!
The challenge is...
On the beach/Under the sea!
We've been sponsored by the fabulous Michelle Perkett who is offering a $10 voucher to the lucky winner!
Some of her fab images are also available in rubber at Sparkle & Sprinkle.
Here's my card:
My image is called Serena and I've coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20,37. Tail; BG09,18,15,13,11,10,YG91,Y00. Hair; E44,43,41,Y26. Tendrils; N7,5,3. Flowers; BG13,11,10,YR24. I also used Dark Brown and Kelp Green Prisma Pencils.
The swirly papers are ones I've had for ages and there's no name on them but I think they're old Stampin' Up! ones. I used lots of dies too - a large Circle die from Go Kreate for the base of the card which I folded in half. Standard Circle and Big Scalloped Circles from Spellbinders for the image and sentiment. Quinn Flourish by Memory Box for the swirly circle behind the sentiment. A frame swirl by Lea'bilities and a Magnolia swirl cos I thought there just wasn't enough swirl on it! lol!
The sentiment is computer generated and the swirly font is called "I'm bored" which is an odd name for a font! I went over the text with a dark green sakura stardust pen. A few Swarovski crystals and it's done!
The inside hadn't got much room to work with so I used another swirl die and a few more Swarovski's.
So that's my card. Head on over to the Creative Card Crew challenge blog and have a peek at the rest of the DT's fabulous cards and then get creative! I can't wait to see you there!
