So now I'm back trying to catch up on a lot of admin and with several posts to catch up on too... let's get to it :)
I was so honoured when Dawny P from Papertake Weekly contacted me a while ago and asked if I would be a guest designer for one of their challenges - it's such a fabulous blog and they've recently started a guest design spot featuring a stamper chosen by one of their design team. I was so flattered that the lovely Mandy, who's work I've long admired, recommended me!
This week's challenge (ends tomorrow) on Papertake Weekly is simply called 'Angels and Fairies' - we were given these fabulous images from TAC to use - I LOVE them! (Check out the PTW blog for more info)
I chose to make a stand up card (instruction here) - I love this fold, I think it makes for a really special card.
This super-funky angel was coloured with Copics to make the Early Bird papers from my favourite paper company (Cosmo Cricket if you've missed my eulogies!).
Here's the card folded flat:
And a side view:
Stamps - TAC
Card - Kraft/Pure Poppy/Stamper's Select White (All Papertrey Ink)
Paper - Early Bird (Cosmo Cricket)
Other - Marth Stewart border punch/buttons (Papertrey Ink)/Pure Poppy ribbon (Papertrey Ink)/sewing machine/Copic markers
Thank you so much to Dawn and Mandy for giving me the chance to join the PTW team - head on over to the PTW blog to see the other DT creations!
We've also just posted a new challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey - this time we want you to make a card using your favourite colour, there will be no surprises I'm sure that I headed straight for my stack of Aqua Mist card, ink and ribbon!
Aqua or any shade of turquoise is a head-turning colour for me - every time I see anything in it I do a double take - be it clothes (look no further than my wardrobe, not many other colours in there lol!) , jewellery, cars or even houses - I saw a few adorable aqua mist coloured houses in South Devon last week! Visit the blog for more details on entering the challenge.
Thanks for visiting - I have several posts to catch up on over the next few days so hope to see you again :)
