The card I have today came about when I was showing my sister how I colour my images... she used to come to my Decorative Painting classes, and still paints up a storm but has never used Copics or Prismacolor pencils and was interested to see how it works ;)
I had this cute image printed and ready to go, it's Bella's Flower from Sassy Cheryl, Fab'n'funky Challenges has Cute and Cuddly so I'm entering there 'coz Bella is Cute AND Cuddly. As I said I coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut Bella and her cute little bug friend.
I made my favourite kind of card; an easel! The papers are from a pack I got in Spotlight called Gelati. Simon Says Challenge is to use a Bit o' Green and Crafty Creations has Show us some Green - plenty of green here, I'm in ;)
I cut the image panel with Standard Circle Nestabilities and the mat with an Mpress Scalloped Flower Die. Totally Papercrafts has Punch It (Use Punches or Dies) as their theme so I'm entering there and The Paper Shelter has the same, so in there too.
I made the larger flowers using a Nellie Snellen punch, and the smaller ones using a punch from my LSS shaping and colouring them with some light yellow ink before heat embossing them with iridescent sparkle EP (those tiny flowers were FIDDLY!) I then added centres with pearls from my stash that I coloured to suit with Copics.
Sassy Cheryls Tuesday Challenge theme is Flowers Flowers Everywhere, Addicted to Stamps has Bring on Spring (lots of flowers), My Mums Craft Shop has Spring has Sprung, Allsorts Challenges has Springtime, One Stop Craft Challenge has Spring and Oozak has Anything Goes with Spring; so I'm entering all those.
I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut the butterflies before giving them the same treatment, the leaves are from a punch I've had for yonks. Cupcake Craft Challenges has Sparkle, Corrosive Challenge has Sparkle or Glittter Digital Tuesday Buttons or Bling - obviously I'm going for BLING ;)
I added a jotting panel to the inside of the card, the ribbon is from my stash, and the sentiment is a die cut from Craftworks Cards, the edges are embossed with the same Iridescent EP as the flowers and butterflies.
Bearly Mine Challenges has Mother's Day or for a Special Lady, as does Creative Craft Challenges, Joanna Sheen, Totally Gorjuss and Crafts 4 Eternity so I'm entering there. Papertake Weekly, Craft Us Crazy, Stamping With The Dragon, Colour Me
Copic and That Craft Place all have Anything
Goes challenges running, so I'm entering there too.
Well that's it for today's card. I'll be back soon, until then Happy Crafting, Donna
