Well, long time no see lol! I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged for so long (again) but it’s been really hectic and I’ve seem to be chasing my tail and playing catch up for the last few weeks. Hopefully once I’ve blogged this week’s DT cards I can get back to normal, well that’s the plan anyway.
I would normally blog my cards in order of the challenges but I’m going to share my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge first as I want to enter it into the sugar bowl challenge before it ends haha!
This week’s challenge has been set by Maya and she has chosen “grey & purple”. These have to be your dominant colours (but hair, skin and fur are allowed). Here is my card:
I’ve used an image from Sugar Nellie stamps called ‘domestic goddess’ and coloured it with promarkers and flex markers. The embossed cardstock is actually a light grey but some reason it looks beige in the picks – my usual photography skills at work lol! The doily started life as a large square but I cut it down on the side and stuck it back together to make a frame for the image – I think it looks quite pretty.
Our sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy stamps and one lucky winner will receive a stamp of their choice.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples so please pop over and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
The sugar bowl challenge – sketch
Papertake challenge – anything goes
Crafts and me challenge – use a new image
Frosted designs challenge – ribbon and/or twine
Fussy ‘n’ fancy challenge – polka dots (ribbon)
Stamping for the weekend challenge – embossing
Allsorts challenge – free and easy
Drunken stampers challenge – something new (stamp)
Crafter’s companion challenge – anything goes
Paper pretties challenge – add texture (embossing)
I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create. I would like to welcome my newest followers - Sarah Davey and Donna Angliss *waves hello"* – I hope you enjoy your visits to my little part of blogland.
I’ll be back later with another catch up post but until then thanks so much for stopping by.
