Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - Friday 26/3/10

I cannot believe that another two weeks has come and gone and it is time for yet another Crafty Ann's Challenge.  This fortnight the topic is to make something for someone special.  It is my Mum's birthday this coming Sunday so my Design Team card is for her.  

I have used one of Crafty Ann's new digital images of a lovely comfy chair which looks so inviting.  I decided I'd make a 9x8 inch card so made the chair quite large so it didn't feel lost on the card.  I then popped on one of  Karen's Doodles images of a cute little girl with her button teddy and also cropped the image so I could decoupage it up three layers.  The backing papers are from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop and are the Abstract 2 in lilac and pink and I have used my Martha Stewart lattice punch on most of the edges and then distressed with Tim Holtz's Dusty Concord Distress Ink pad and cut-and-dry foam.  I also printed off quite a number of sheets of Ann's various flower images and coloured them in with various shades of pinks and lilac/purple Promarkers and cut them out and placed them in different places on the card.  In the centres of the flowers I stuck some Papermanis glitter circles.  The card is finished off with a verse, sentiment off the computer and some gingham ribbon I've had for a year or more but couldn't bare to use!!!
