Good evening, it's turned into a scorcher again today and I was very happy to get home this evening, the journey on 2 buses really isn't pleasant when the weather is like this lol.
First up I have some news, I won another challenge! *Points excitedly to the new blinkie in the top left corner*. I won the beginner challenge at Marvellous Magnolia, I'm soo happy, it's been such a good week for me :)
Ok, on to the card I'm sharing. I was asked by a work colleague to make a card for a friend of hers who was leaving to go travelling.
I knew right away what image I wanted to use as I'd been eyeing up Pack Light for some time, I just had nothing that I'd use her on so this was perfect. I'd also seen just the papers I wanted to use, so this card almost made itself.
I coloured her with Copics and Promarkers, sorry but I forget to make a note of them.
I must admit is was pretty strange not using very much in the way of embellishments, no ribbon or lace or flowers. But really it was all about the image and the collage made from the designer papers from Teresa Collins, that carried the theme, I think anything more wouldn't have looked right.
I used a nesties die cut to cut out the map and a Doo-Hickey one for the tag.
The globe was a sample die cut that was sent through with an order from Dies to Die for, I love it that Tracey does that, it's such a nice touch and this one was perfect for this card, I think it's from a Whimsy die. I added some glamour dust to the image, but as usual the photo really doesn't do this stuff justice.
Other than that and a few black pearls and some small butterflies cut with an x-cut punch it was just elements hand cut from the designer papers.
I used more cut outs from the DP to decorate the inside of the card, and tops it with a scalloped oval (these are from X-Cut) and a little bit of liquid pearls.
I was really thrilled with the way this card turned out and my colleague loved it so that was win!
I hope you like it too, if you do, please leave me a comment :)
