Hope everyone has been enjoying the recent gorgeous weather! I've had a really busy week at the allotment and taking my littl'uns to a never ending stream of kids clubs, swimming and football lessons and other social events but I have managed to squeeze in some crafting time! I've got quite a few creations to show you over the next few days but this is for the new challenge over at Dream Valley. This time we'd like to see your monochrome creations!!!!
I always seem to do my girlie cards in pinks and purples but I've got some really pretty blue papers so I wanted to do a blue girlie card this time..... The image is of of Sugar Nellie's Manga Girls which I have not used nearly enough!
I've coloured her with my promarkers, cut her out and put her inside a nestie cut frame on foam pads to make her stand out a bit.... I took this photo at first but I'm struggling getting my piccies right at the moment....
so then I took this one.... The colours look better but then I've got all the shadows to deal with! I can't win!
I followed a lovely sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp although the deadline has now passed so I can't enter it.... :-( I've made my usual scrunchy flowers using scalloped circle layers that I've dampened and given a good scrunching before pinning together with brads.
I have used:
Image - Sugar Nellie
Papers - Forever Friends Pink Parfait (pale blue) and Papermania Henbury Lane (brighter glittery paper)
Round corner punch
Ribbon, gems and brads from stash
Whoopsi Daisy - Make your own embellies (scrunchy flowers)
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Handmade (flowers)
Stampin' for the weekend - What a cutie
Simon says stamp - Anything goes
Paperplay - White + 1 other colour
CES challenges - Totally gorjuss/pretty girls
The ABC Challenge - A for Anything goes
Right! I'm off to the allotment before we run out of sun :-) Have a fab weekend and hope you can join us at Dream Valley soon!!!!
Love 'n' hugs,
