Good evening (insert correct greeting for time zone here), it's time for a new challenge over at
and for this fortnight the theme is
You can use any image (or no image at all) but it must be a card and it must be shaped (so no squares or rectangles and yes I know they're a shape but we're looking for a shape that's different from the standard).
Now anyone who has been following me for a while will know that this is not a hard theme for me. I do love a shaped card, in fact I think I must make shaped cards more than square even. So to give myself a bit of an extra challenge, I decided to make another easel card. My friend and team mate Jenny makes the most amazing easel cards as does another friend from another DT Gina , but they are not something I make a lot of, partly because of the extra time involved, but I do love them.
I decided to colour up Zoe, from Saturated Canary, with distress inks to match these gorgeous papers that came in my Dies to Die for DT pack. I have had to restrain myself from buying a pad of these simply because I have so much paper and so little space lol, but honestly I'm not sure how long I'll be able to resist, they are sooooo pretty and so versatile!
Zoe is such a gorgeous image, this digi cames in a pack of 5 and they are all gorgeous! I blew her up reasonably large and cropped her, then once she was coloured in I fussy cut her and placed her so she looks like she is about to step out of a photo. The polaroid die and all the accessory dies came from the .....La-La Land Club Kit. It's no longer available but this set of dies from the November 2014 kit, should be released sometime after November 2015, so look out for them! The love die is also from La-La Land but not part of a club kit, so you can get that now, it come as part of a set with the Hanging Hearts Dies.
This is a view of what the card looks like when it's closed.
