Hope you're all ok and keeping well and safe? Sorry I've been a bit quiet on here but we (me and Heather) have been so busy lately and I've been making projects that I'm not able to post just yet. You'll be seeing them in the coming days, though, so watch this space!
Also, I'd like to say welcome to all my new followers and thank you to my regulars. Sorry I'm not managing to keep up with everyone's blogs but I'm trying hard to comment as much as I possibly can. So many people are blogging several times a day which does make it impossible to comment as much as I'd like, so please forgive me. Shall comment as much as I can but I won't be able to comment on every blog entry you make or I'd never get my own crafting done. I'm sure you'll understand.
Today's card is a real little cutie made using Heather's fabulous Maddie - Hobo Clown digi which is only available from Lacy Sunshine. Anyone else selling Heather's digis is doing so illegally. They are a disgrace and are breaking the law and all demands to take them down from their site. They are selling digis to people who are also, unknowingly, breaking the law by buying them. So not only are they stealing from Heather but also turning decent, innocent people into handlers of stolen goods! Shame on them! I don't know how they can live with themselves to be honest.
Anyway...here is today's card:
How cute and simple is this?
I have coloured the digi image with my Promarkers (and a few Copics) using the following colours:
Skin: Copic E00, E11 and E21
Lips and Pink: Antique Pink and Baby Pink.
Hair: Walnut, Cocoa and Cinnamon.
Eyes: Marine, Turquoise and Cool Aqua.
Purple areas: Purple, Amethyst and Orchid.
Green: Bright Green and Lime Green.
The dies I have used come from the Cheery Lynn Reflection Boutique Mega Doily Mini Pearl Squares die. As these dies come in half squares (you need to cut twice for a square) it's easy to make rectangles with them as well, so they are extremely versatile and create such pretty edges. Even the tiny rectangle for the sentiment was created using the square set!
I've allowed the dies to dictate the size of the card as I obviously couldn't adjust them as much as I could the basic card, so it's not the biggest of cards, though could be bigger if required.
So it's just a square piece of white cardstock folded in half to form the base, and then matting and layering (inside as well) for the background. And I've used a patchwork paper from Bearly Mine (link over in right sidebar).
The pink card is Papermania Textured cardstock and I've used that for the matting and for the flower, which was cut using the Cheery Lynn large rose die set. The layers were fitted together with a purple brad from my stash.
The sentiment is just one of the silver foiled shop bought ones from my stash, as were the bright pink faux gems.
So, a nice simple and clean little card but, I think, really cute and pretty too. Hope you like it!
