My back is still playing up but I've put it to the back of my mind over the past few days as my wee nephew was taken into hospital after the passed out at home. He had another episode in the hospital but after a night in there and lot's of tests done they think it was a one (or two) off, and it's nothing to get too worried about. He's back home now causing havoc again with his wee sister who missed him a lot on his night in hospital!
Time, though, for another challenge at the Creative Card Crew and as well as some fabulous new teamies, we have a fabulous new sponsor..
Who are offering 4 digi's to one lucky winner!
And the challenge is...
The design team were lucky enough to be given some of their digi's to work with and I chose the gorgeous Fae to use. Here's what I did:
I made an easel card
I started off by opening the image "Fae" in PSE so I could reduce the opacity as I wanted to try the no-lines technique with a digi image. I then proceeded, very carefully, with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E49,39,37,35,33,R59. Butterflies; R39,29,27,BG49,45,02,G24,21,20,YR24,23,21. And Black, Dark Purple and Dark Brown Prisma pencils. Sorry the pictures aren't great, I couldn't get the light to stop glaring on the image.
The papers are DCWV Mariposa stack and the ribbon is from my stash. The swirl is my favourite Magnolia die with a few swarovski's. The Butterfly is a Spellbinder die and I inked it up with some distress inks before I removed it from the die. I then painted some champagne mist ink on the bits that weren't inked before adding some bling in the form of Swarovski crystals. The sentiment is by Wild Rose Studio's on Stampin' Up! punches.
The bit down the side was what was left of the 8x8 sheet I used for the top of the easel and I fussy cut around the design before I adhered it to the base.
So go and have a look at the Creative Card Crew blog to see the rest of the DT's (including the newbies!) fabulous work!
