I’m here today with my very first Design Team post for Paper Crafting Journey Challenges http://paper-craftingjourney.blogspot.co.uk/.
I let out one almighty squeal when I found out I had made the DT and then when I found out who our first sponsor was I let out a louder squeal!!!
Our sponsor this month is the lovely Krista! Yep the very talented Krista, of http://saturated-canary.myshopify.com/ ! And I got to pick the image I wanted to colour!
Wowee I was so excited – I set Eddy off on a yappy session and DH was like ‘what’s up, what’s going on, you okay’ lol!
I spent an hour and a half looking at all the beautiful digital images. In the end I chose Krafty Kate, http://saturated-canary.myshopify.com/products/krafty-kate. She is a real pleasure to colour and I have no doubt whatsoever you will be seeing her again soon and often! After all I have to ‘practise’ as much as possible lol. Anyways I did print this image out several times and this was the coloured image that I am the happiest with – I hope my colouring is up to standard.
Anyways enough of my waffle here she is …
|This card is approximately 165mm square|
|It does flatten down considerably for posting and this is how it looks when it's taken out of an envelope.|
|The little Candi heart that is hidden behind the image|
|The front panel when laid flat|
|Close up of the stamped and coloured image|
|Wild Orchid flowers|
|The back panel|
|I think this stamp is going to be used quite a lot lol!|
I can use some of my Candi stash up too!
|A final look!|
Because our theme is ‘love’ I decided to stamp a heart background for my card. I decided to make a lilac/lavender card because it was the best coloured image and because I had lavender and purple card scraps to use up too. I used a cross stitch heart stamp and a small heart fleur-de-lis from one of my new Papermania Christmas stamp sets – those stamps will cover more than ‘just Christmas’.
