Ahh le weekend! It's been super busy at work and I've been looking forward to some down time and time to craft. Had a few projects and challenges in mind which I've just not had time to do, but now I can craft my little heart out.
I really should check my lottery tickets, I have 3 unchecked lol, I could be a millionare, but ofc once you check them you aren't...and while they're unchecked I can still dream right? ;)
I chose the image (Best Day Ever from Sugar Nellie) with the challenge from Wild Orchid Crafts in mind, but as I've entered her in several challenges and they only allow 3 including theirs (oops my mistake), I will have to enter another one for that lol. She's a Sugar Nellie image I coloured up in work as usual in Copics. I've listed the colours below.
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 21, R20
Hair: E50, 51, 53, 29
Dress, Shoes, Flowers and Presents: R81, 83, 85, B000, 12, Y00, 02
Mouse: E53, 51, 50, R11, 20
I made a shaped card with my one and only set of Go Kreate dies, must get more of these, another thing on my ever growing wish list hehe.
I added several layers to the card which consist of a large doily, another layer of (gorgeous Maja) DP cut with the smaller Go Create die from the set, some cheesecloth and more DP cut with a punch, some beautiful lace on top of that and then the frame cut with a nestie. I fussy cut the image and mounted it with foam squares.
There's also a tag nestled between the yellow layer and the doily. I think I may have gone overboard on the layers now I'm typing them all out!
All the papers were distressed with Walnut Stain.
I added some flowers to match the colours I used, unusual for me to go for more than 2 colours but I'm entering a Fav Colour Combo challenge and I really couldn't decide lol. I added a small amount of Frantage in Shabby Pink on the edges of the frame and around the image.
The beautiful sparkly ribbon used for the bow isn't really done justice by the photos.
I've added some of the links to products used below, but I couldn't get Inlinkz to work with The Ribbon Girls or Wild Orchid Crafts. Ribbon and binding are from the former, flowers are from the latter.
I'm entering this card for the following challenges:
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday, I do have another card ready to share, so that will be later tonight or tomorrow morning depending on what time I have.
Thanks for visiting xx
