Crafty Cardmakers Guest DT Card


Hello lovely crafty people! Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and for those in the US that you're enjoying your long weekend!

Some weeks ago Vix emailed me to ask me to be a guest designer for her new challenge blog Crafty Cardmakers. I said yes of course and am very happy to have been asked and so this is my guest design team card! The challenge this time is a sketch-it's a nice simple one which you can either keep simple but of course can modify a bit and add 'extras' if desired. I've pretty much kept to the layout but have tilted the elements.

The papers I've used are all MME 29th Street Market and I thought this beautiful SugarNellie stamp called Reflective was a perfect match to the pretty papers. She's coloured her with copic pens and I then did my usual by adding distress ink in milled lavendar to the outside of the image and edges.

Stuff: Sugarnellie stamp 'Reflective' buy it here, copic ciao pens, MME 29th Street papers, Prima flowers, spacer from Quixotic here, ribbon from stash, distressing tool (tim holtz), distress ink in milled lavendar, sewing machine, martha stewart valentine lace punch, woodware grass punch.

I'm also going to enter this at Creative Inspirations as their theme is lilac, purple and grey (the little branches are grey with a bit of distress ink added) and Copic Creations as their challenge this week is to use your fave colour combo using copics (first time entering there!).

If you've not checked out Crafty Cardmakers please do-especially if you're new to joining in challenges or even cardmaking-there is regular tutorials and useful information-and fabulous prizes! Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for popping by and any comemnts you might leave-they make my day!
