I'm a little late in posting this as it should've been done on Tuesday, I haven't had a minute to get it done so apologies to Mari and the other ladies at Creative Card Crew.
I went to Belfast on Monday to get my car serviced and went shopping with my mum while we waited. I got some lovely fabrics and trimmings at the Spinning Wheel shop in the city centre, I can't wait til the patterns I ordered online arrive so I can maybe get started, I'm excited about starting to sew, I hope I can pull it off and not be too disappointed with my results!
But in the mean-time I am sticking to what I know best, card making!
We started a new challenge at the Creative Card Crew on Tuesday and this fortnight we are being sponsored by Marianne Designs who are giving away a gorgeous stamp and die set to one lucky winner!
And we are also being sponsored by the fabulous Lacy Sunshine with 3 digi's going to another lucky winner!
So, the challenge for this fortnight is...
We want to see how you see spring, the colours, the wildlife or whatever!
Here's what I did
The image was provided by our sponsor, Lacy Sunshine and I coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; R22,21,20. Dress; YG07,05,03,YR04,02. Wings; E0000,R20,G00,B05. Sky; C3,2,1,B01,00,000,Blender. Grass; E47,31,YG07,05,03,97,95.
I had just refilled my skin-colour pens and I think they are a bit over-powering in the picture, but you live and you learn!
I used some pebeo paints on the image, to make flowers in the grass. I also used some champagne mist ink on her wings which shimmer nicely in the light, you can't see it above so I took another pic which shows it a little better.
The papers I have used are First Edition Spring Feast and I teamed it up with some contrasting green card to mount on. The lace, net, brads and charm are from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated using the free font Fortuna Schwein. I didn't use any dies on this card! Go me!
The inside matches the front with the sentiment completed in the same font as the front.
I do hope you can join us in this challenge, there is a load of amazing inspiration to look at from the rest of the DT at the Creative Card Crew!
