I'm starting todays post off with a moan and a grumble, but I'll keep it short and move on! I was supposed to write this post up last night but my arm and shoulder have been so painful I wasn't able to :( Thankfully it's not as intensly painful today so I managed to get to work even though I hardly had a wink of sleep last night, and I'm getting my post done tonight should I have to type one handed and keep my eyelids open with match-sticks!
So onto happier things and a new challenge at the Creative Card Crew with our prize this fortnight being sponsored by the fabulous Marianne Designs!
So the challenge this time is...
White On White!
We are allowing colour on images but nowhere else!
That's a decent challenge I think, difficult to do, but it can create some fantastic results!
I'm not so sure about my own card though, here it is:
I made a card for a First Communion - or First Community as my little nephew calls it! lol!
The gorgeous image is by Mo's Digital Pencil and I coloured her with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E47,44,43,42. Bow: RV11,10. Shading: BV31,V0000,C7,3,blender. Grass: E33,29,YG97,95,67,17. And highlighted with white acrylic paint.
I used up some scraps of a sort of fabric paper with glittery stuff through it that I've had in my stash for ages and have no idea where I got it! the upper part is plain white card which I ran through an embossing folder (again, I have no name on it but I know it's not a CB one). The swirls are a Marianne Designs die and the ribbon, netting, gems and butterfly are from my stash.
The sentiment and the punch are both Stampin' Up!.
The inside, as ever, is done to match the front.
So take a run over to the Creative Card Crew blog and check out just how talented the rest of the DT are!
