I made this card last night but had trouble getting onto Blogger and gave up in the end & went off to watch some TV. But I am here now. I used the lovely sketch from Wild Orchid Craft challenge but missed the boat with posting on that one. But all is not lost as I am still in time for the Lili of the Valley challenge AND I have another of my June requirements made :0)
Errrr.......OK.......I think Mr Blogger is still being stroppy as I can't move my pic down to below the text as I would usually do and I'm getting big gaps?!?
DP's - My Mind's Eye
Coloured with Promarkers & pearlescent water colour paints
Stickles 'Star Dust'
White seam binding also coloured with Promarkers.
OK ....lets see if the post works..............

Ooops I took the pic in too strong a sunlight so the colours look just a darker & bolder IRL.

So, another card from me today. I would have posted it tomorrow but it was made with a couple of challenges in mind and the Less is More challenge ends today. So without further ado here's my card......
The oh so cute image is by Penny Black and is one of my many favorites. I have followed the sketch from this weeks Less is More challenge and picked the centre square to play with. I did have several attempts with some of the other square but just couldn't make it work.
The image is coloured with Promarkers and simply layered onto some bright card scraps from my ever growing collection. My favorite Stickles 'Star Dust' on the little mouses hat and that's about it.
Less is More ~ Pick a square
PB Allsorts ~ Favorite stamp
Jules' snippets challenge ~ To use up those little leftover bits!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog.
Have a fabby weekend!
I have used a layout from my mag and just gone with the flow for the rest. Obviously in a blue mood today. Raided my snippets box for papers & bazzill bits and paper pierced the gift boxes to match. Ted & the larger flower are coloured with Promarkers. The white flower has been sprayed with Crafters Companion Iridescent Spray & Sparkle. Text done on the PC. A generous dash of Stickles 'Star Dust' around the edge of the image and text to finish and voila!
I love Promarkers ~ Sparkly bling. Colours used: Cool grey 1, 2, 3 & 4; Duck Egg on the flower & Pastel blue on the envelope.
Pollycraft ~ Teddy bears.
Jules' Sunday Snippets ~ Use up your snippets
Hope you all have a fab weekend!
