Well the Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog Design Team have now had a little break and it's time to get down to challenges again. This fortnight we have been given the challenge "Let's think hot!" ie hot colours or summery images.
For both cards I have used one of Crafty Ann's newer digital images of the barge and canal. I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers. It took a while and I managed to use 9 different shades of green and 6 different shades of brown!!! I have then used my X-cut tearing ruler around the edges and highlighted this with a chalk ink pad. The backing papers in both cards are the red/orange Funky Paper Collection, green Polished Stone and brown Polished Stone. The flowers I have made using a new Marianne's Designs die which has a large circle but inside it has various flower sizes. The paper is the red/orange used as the backing paper and I have distressed the edges with a chalk ink pad along with all the backing papers as I HATE seeing white edges. The flowers are finished off with brads to hold them together. The extras added to the card are inserts, ribbon and sentiments off the computer.
I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox - Something new - new die and new outing for this digital image for me
Robyn's Fetish - Anything goes
