Was just going to tell you all my exciting news when I looked at my blogger dashboard and got some more!! I've just been given a place on the Creative Craft Challenges DT, I'm so excited and looking forward to getting going with it. Have a DT card due next week so that's my project for tonight. Thanks to all the girls on the DT for really warm welcome - I feel at home already - such a lovely friendly bunch and with a few of us new girls all starting together you've probably got your work cut out lol.
My second exciting news is I just found out I've got a top 3 card in the Sentimental Sundays challenge last week - thank you to the DT at Sentimental Sundays for that too - todays been a good day all round. I've even got a card made today as well so crafty things can't get much better.
I wanted to use another of my cute new Saturated Canary digis so chose this one called Dorothy -yes that's Wizard of Oz style Dorothy, I think you'll agree she's very cute. I decided to go all out pretty for this one - pink, ribbon, flowers, pearls and butterflies - thought I'd hold on the glitter - there's such a thing as too much ha ha.
|a close up of the detail|
What I did....
Stamp - Dorothy -Saturated Canary
Paper - New Arrival from Docrafts Forever Friends
Flowers - Wild Orcid crafts
Coloured with - copics and Prismacolor pencils
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Punches (corners and border,butterfly and leaves) - Martha Stewart
Pearls - Kaisercraft
Distress ink (around diecut for image) - Tim Holtz spun sugar
Pink card and seambinding ribbon - from my stash
I had a bit of a happy accident with the ribbon, I tied a double bow then cut through the wrong loop so ended up with a single bow with 3 lots of tails. At the same time my absolute favourite Martha Stewart butterfly border punch that I use to cut out all the little butterflies totally jammed up - I managed to get one butterfly! I'll have another go with it tomorrow and try to rescue it :(
