Good morning dear friends. I hope you all had a fantastic Monday. Winter is definitely here – it was very chilly and it stayed really dark and dreary here all day – me not like!!
It’s time for a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge. The lovely Lisa has set the theme and she has chosen “white on white”. I really love the look of these type of cards but unfortunately they are a nightmare to photograph – and you know my photography skills are not the best anyway lol! Here is my card:
Sadly my husband’s auntie passed away last week so I made this card to send to his uncle and cousin. I know it is a bit girly but I thought it would be ok as his cousin (a woman) will be receiving it too but I chose the colour blue to add a bit of “maleness” to it! The image is from DigiStamp Boutique and is called “quirky flowers” but I don’t think it’s still available as I couldn’t find it in the shop. I coloured the image with promarkers and used 3 different embossing folders for the background. I went a bit mad with the stickles but I think it looks ok. I meant to add a few pearls but I forgot after waiting what seemed like ages for the stickles to dry!!
Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and Sally-Ann is offering our lucky winner the choice of 6 digi images from her store.
