The oh-so-cute image I've used is Teddy Love, available here, the stool is from Little Miss Muffet Stamps - I love how you can merge digis so easily to make whole new scenes. Divas by Design want us to Use a Digi - I've used two, I'm in! I've coloured mainly with Prismacolor pencils, which I don't do very often because it takes me a bit longer than with Copics... I don't spend as much time "tidying up" the edges with pencil though, and I do love the soft effect it gives.
I've followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this time, I like a nice sketch :-) The papers are from Kaisercraft's Sweet Nothings pad, the image matting is actually plum pink embossed card distressed with brown ink - the card base and rest of the matting is Kraft, also distressed to soften the look. Crazy 4 Challenges wants us to Frame It - I hope this is "framed" enough.
I aged the lace, which is from my stash, with the ink and added some string pearls I've had in my stash for ages.
The swirl of gold flatback 'pearls' (from Bunny Zoe Crafts) took me ages; I'm sure there's a more efficient way to add them than how I did it, lol. There are four layers separated by foam dots on this card, getting those tiny pearls to sit on the edge of one layer was a trick I can tell ya! Moving Along With The Times wants to see Pearly, Swirly & Girly - tick, tick, tick, I'm in, Aud Sentiments has Feminine, I'm in there too and Digi Makeover hasLots of Layers so in there too.
I made the pin up using beads from my stash. Actually the coloured beads (which are so lovely and iridescent IRL) are from a necklace my Mum brought back from Malaysia; she knew I wouldn't get much use out of it as a necklace but MAN there were a lot of beads on it :-)) A Little Bit Crafty wants to see Sparkle and Shine so I'm entering there and Delightful Challenges has All That Glitters, so in there as well.
The flourish is Memory Box's Corner Bow Die cut in pieces - I forgot to distress it first, but it still looks okay I think. I made the sentiment on the computer, as usual you'll find it on my Freebies page if you're interested - I did get the idea from one of TLC's fabulous freebies, but wanted to use a more "girly" font, so thanks anyway Paulette :-)
The inside of the card was finished to compliment the front, more or less following the same layout, papers and embellies.
Bearly Mine Challenges, Whimsy Inspirations Challenge,Catch The Bug, Through the Craftroom Door, Papertake Weekly and Card Mania Challenges all have Anything Goes challenges so I'm entering them all.That's about it for today, pop over to the Di's Digis Challenge blog and check out the awesome makes by the rest of the DT. I hope you get a chance to enter the challenge too - there's a great prize from Digi Darla (and an extra draw if you use one of Di's fab digis), such an easy challenge...what are you waiting for? lol
I really will have to get some of the cards I've made out of my Drafts folder and on to my blog - it seems to get harder to find the time than ever!
I'll be back - hopefully in a few days; until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
