Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Bloggers, first of all I would like to thank you all for joining me throughout last year, and wish you a very 'Happy and Prosperous 2016'. May all your hopes and dreams come true!! I feel this is going to be a very good year for us all!!! :)
So on to why I'm here, I'm sharing with you my DT project for the first challenge of the New Year for the Crafty Addicts. Our theme for this fortnight is Celebrations and/or Anything Goes. Our sponsors are Lacy Sunshine, and Morgan's Artworld. I chose the latter, and their image I've used is the fab Goth Fairy 2. I actually made this with my Mother-in-law in mind (her favourite colours and with flowers) as it was her birthday a couple of days ago, and I can say that she was so delighted with it!!
Morgan's Artworld - Image Goth Fairy 2
Promarkers - Almond, Blush, Sandstone, Pastel Blue, Grey Green, Tea Green Antique Pink and Cerise
Derwent Coloursoft Pencils - Blue and Dove Grey
Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - Clear Star
Spellbinders - Grand Decorative Oval Dies
Joycraft - Decorative Stand Die
Tonic - Latice Arch Die
Joanna Sheen 'Signature'- Ivy Flourish Die
Bazzil Basics - Blue Backing Card
Creata - Black Mirror card
Docrafts - Country Companions Backing Paper
Flowers, Resin Flowers, Brad and Pearl Gems from my stash
I, first of all, cut out the card's main shape using Creata mirror card; I then layered together with the Country Companions backing paper. To add strength to the card, I added a piece of oval card at the back. I then cut out the stand using the same mirror card, and added the die cut lattice arch. After printing, colouring, and cutting out the image, I positioned this half onto to the arch. I finished off by adding the die cut flourishes, flowers, brad, and pearl gems. Here are some close ups ..
Hoping that this has given you all some inspiration to come and join us this fortnight; we look forward to seeing all your fabulous makes!!
I am entering this into the following challenges:-
