Here comes the weekend … it’s Saturday so it's time for another weekly Allsorts Challenge. This week Mervi has chosen the theme and it is
A nice easy theme with many possibilities - pretty colours, flowers, cute images ... and of course if you need to make a Mother's Day card this could be the time!
This week we have the following fab prizes on offer for 3 lucky winners:
Craft Stash has kindly donated a pretty Crafters Companion die set
and this gorgeous tonic studio edge die
Also, Ruth Hamilton Design is kindly offering another winner 3 digi images of their choice from her online shop.
Here's my card for this week, using Ruth Hamilton Design - Peony Posy.
I printed this lovely image, then coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I tried to create a bit of interest by colouring around the flowers with a soft blue grey Flexmarker and then creating a mottled effect using rubbing alcohol dabbed on with a cotton bud - this is a technique I learned in a Kit & Clowder colouring class. I cut out my coloured image using a stitched rectangle die then stamped my sentiment, which was part of a bargain set I recently picked up at the Crafter’s Companion shop … I have been looking to expand my range of sentiment stamps and these are really fun. I sponged the edges of the stitched rectangle with Distress oxide ink and mounted the panel onto background paper, then finis off by decorating it with sparkly die cut butterflies and a leafy swirl, and iridescent gems.
Stamps: Ruth Hamilton Design - Peony Posy (digi); sentiment - Crafter's Companion Positive Thoughts;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink (Kitsch Flamingo);
