I think I am just in the nick of time as tonight is the deadline for entering this week's challenge on a new blog Creative Inspirations. The prize could be one of two design team spots on offer! The sketch for week one was fantastic and I found it really easy to work with - if this sketch is anything to go by I'll definitely be back again! I hope you can support this new challenge and check out the fabulous creations from the existing team, they really are inspirational! Good luck to everyone who has entered the DT call ;o)
For my card I inked up this fabulous Farming Anya, she's so cute and I just love her headscarf and matching neckerchief! I chose some paper from the scrummy PM Cool Shades set that Sharon sent me for my birthday and matched it up with some Basic Grey Offbeat scraps. I had a brainwave to use the natural raffia instead of ribbon as it reminds me of straw and there is a bit of a country theme going on here don't you know, lol!
I added Glossy Accents to Anya's buckets and lots of glitter to her clothes - you may be able to pick this up better if you zoom. Oh no....... if you do zoom you'll realise that all my stitching is faux! Ah well, I can't lie because me and sewing machines just don't cut it! Good job there are so many fab fineliners out there these days!!
I've just realised something - two posts in one day! Wow, that must be a first..... think I need to go and have a lie down, lol!
Materials: Image - The Greetings Farm Sentiment - The Greetings Farm Papers - PM Cool Shades, Basic Grey Offbeat Dies - Spellbinders Tag Trio Embossing - Cuttlebug Folder Flowers - Prima Colouring - Polychromatic Pencils Embellishments - Raffia and Brads from my stash Accents - Stickles Glitter Glue, Rangers Glossy Accents, Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Brown Fineliner
What a difference it makes being able to take piccies in the garden - much brighter with a natural light! It's my day off tomorrow and I'm looking forward to getting creative! Just hope my mojo doesn't decide to have a lie in, lol!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
