Tea Or Coffee?

Tuesday, 16 April 2013

Hi everyone!

Well, news on my cousin...  He got through to the final!!  The final is on this Friday night but unfortunately I can't go :(  The competition is so tight so it's brilliant that he got that far and I so hope he does well on the night.  The prize is worth the effort - £10,000.00, never mind the exposure!  A star of the not-so-distant future me thinks! :)

So another fortnight has passed since the last challenge at the Creative Card Crew - I can't believe it's gone so fast!  We have another fab challenge for the next fortnight and another fab, new sponsor!

Birdie Brown have some gorgeous digi stamps and they're offering 3 of them as a prize to one lucky winner!

So the challenge for the next 2 weeks is...

Handmade flowers!

I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge as there are so many fantastic ways to hand make flowers and blogland and youtube are full of tutorials.

The DT were lucky enough to be given some Birdie Brown images to work with for this challenge and here's what I did:

The image is called Retro Girl by Birdie Brown and I coloured her with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E31,29,09,08. Dress: G85,82,40. Scarf & shoes: RV34,32,06,04,02. Cup: G09,07,05. Chair: Y26,23,21. Table: BV31,23,0000. Background: E41.

The papers are Cosmo Cricket, Upcycle.  The ribbon is from my stash as is the die that cut the mini tag with - I have no idea what make it is as I think I got it before I even knew what die cutting was! lol!
The sentiment is by Kraftin' Kimmie.

I first saw this sort of rose on Jules' blog and she directed me to where she saw it who luckily for us, has a tutorial on how to make them!  I'm not overly happy with how my rose turned out, I think my ribbon was too wide, but I'll definitely have another go at it sometime!

The inside of my card, as always, compliments the front, with another Kraftin' Kimmie sentiment.

So please go over to the Creative Card Crew blog to see the fab flowers by the rest of the DT (they're much better than mine!) and have a go yourself!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
