Hello, I’m back to let you know that there is a new challenge starting today over on the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards challenge blog. And I’m letting you know because I was asked to become a DT member. Yipeee!
Lovely boss lady Joanne emailed me and I did not hesitate to say yes. What an awesome privilege to be part of another talented team. Wow, how lucky am I! Someone pinch me! (Not hard though please, I bruise easily!)
My fellow teamie Sam (check out her amazing creations here, she is a colourist supreme) recommended me, thank you lovey you are a star, and I have been grinning ever since!
So enough waffle from me what did I make for my first DT post?
Well this is a sketch challenge and here it is.
A fab layout don’t you think, no matter what your style is.
Well we had some beautiful images from our sponsor Whoopsi Daisy to work with and I used this gorgeous lady on a garden swing. See her here in their shop.
I printed my image onto Neenah Solar card and coloured her with my Pro & Flexmarkers (not very well I have to say (Sam, I need help!), adding Flowersoft to the tree for a ‘blossom’ look.
The papers are LOTV Country Lady, rather appropriate I thought, and I matted with brown card and distressed to give a vintage feel.
I followed the sketch to the letter and did not add much embellishment apart from the crochet lace ribbon and some pearls.
I have a couple of occasions coming up that this would be appropriate for so I will add my sentiment when I’ve decided.
I hope you will join us at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards. It’s a great sketch and so easy to follow. Check out the blog for all the wonderful DT inspiration and play along!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
