Has it been cold enough for you over the past few days? Thankfully we didn't get very much snow this time but it has been so cold! The sun is out today though so hopefully it'll start to warm up a bit!
I'm here today as I won the challenge at delightful challenges a few weeks ago (and all the better cos they choose the winners rather than a random pick) and I was asked to be a guest designer on their Digital Delights blog! Of course I said I would! They very kindly let me pick an image and a sentiment from their fab selection and this is what I did:
The image is Flower Power Daffy. I reduced the opacity on the image before I printed it to have another go at the no-lines technique and I coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; YR09,07,04. Clothes; Y17,15,13,00,YG13,11. And Dark brown, Crimson red and Black Prisma pencils.
The papers are Pink Petticoat gingham. I used Spellbinders eyelet squares for the mat and I threaded some ribbon through the holes. I hauled out my sewing machine and stitched around the edges of each mat - I also took the opportunity to turn up some jeans that I've being meaning to do for ages! I made some rolled roses out of the yellow card and the gingham paper - I cut the spiral myself as I don't have any dies for that. My favourite Magnolia swirl die has made an appearance again and the ribbons are from my stash. I coloured the sentiment with some of the same copics I used on the image and then blinged it up with a glittery pen.
The inside with more of the same as the front.
I also made a box to put the card into - as the rolled roses make the card a little too big for an envelope. Here's a picture of the card with the box.
I attached magnets in the ends of the ribbon as a closure and then added some more roses to cover it - one of the roses acts as the opening. Here's a picture of the box opened.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
