Crafts and Me Challenge - 22 February 2012

Over at the Crafts and Me Challenge this week the topic is "shades of spring".  I went to Stamperama and got to meet the lovely Theresa and Tracy and got to have a look at some of the newly released stamps.  I bought two but then Tracy showed me some others on offer so another came home with me - naughty, naughty - but in my defence I thought they'd make nice cards to sell for charity.  I've coloured some of the images but not yet made them into cards yet so you'll have to wait on them but for my card I have used one of the Crafts and Me digital images called "Lady of Opal" by Sara Burrier.
For my card I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, adding some Sakura Stardust clear pen to her hair and wings.  I then used a Spellbinders die and cut out and then inked the edges with a chalk ink pad.  The papers are from Dovecraft and I thought they looked very spring-like.  The card has been finished off with some lace, Studio 112 corner and scroll stickers, bow, Craftwork Cards sentiment, crochet flower made by a friend and a resin flower added to the centre for some dimension.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I adore that paper back splash! I'm such a fool for beautiful papers (even tho I'm not a crafter I collect papers :P). I just love the colors with this image, makes it even softer, as I already found her quite soft. Wonderful job!!
