Last night I went to my gorgeous friend Kirsty's house for a bit of a card making, which always ends up more in talking and colouring some images than anything else, and it was so nice to catch up with her. I will have a few cards coming over the next couple of days to show you using the images I coloured.
While I was there I picked up my new coriander fairy by Sweet November Stamps. As it is cold wet and rainy outside and I am up-to-date with my washing and housework I thought I would sit down with a cuppa and play with my new stamp. The card I ended up making is based on the sketch at Papertake Weekly this week. As you all know I am a huge fan of Dawny's sketches they always seem to inspire me.
Today I took on some advise from Kellie ( she got from Kristy Young) which is to make your card first before adding the image. This is the second time I have done it and the cards have comes together so much quicker, I have found that I am not so tormented.
While I am reasonably happy with my card I am not sure if it is missing something. I have coloured the image using my watercolour pencils, added kaisercraft flowers and rhinestones, lace and ribbon, October Afternoon paper, glitter to the wings and smudged edges with brown ink.
I am also entering this card into:
- Oh Alice - What's Your Muchness - faux stitching and ribbons/lace
-Cupcake Craft challenges - Dazzle Us - glitter on Wings
Tomorrow afternoon is our first Lil Lolita Boutique challenge, be sure to tune in to see what we all come up with I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.
Until next time xoxo
