Here is me all refreshed in body mind and soul after disappearing for the weekend all on my own in my caravan. Went to a lovely site in Kirkudbright where I lived for a while and walked all day by the sea taking photos, crafted all night, ate when I wanted, slept when I felt like it and enjoyed not having to 'fix' anybody or anything - What Bliss!!
Because of that I didn't get this posted (a good excuse I think) so here it is, my first ever card as part of a design team, for the first ever challenge on DU2DS. The challenge is to use any digi stamp on your creation with downloaded papers if you've got any and this week the challenge is a sketch. You've just time to get a smashin entry in and this week there is a brilliant prize, pro markers and loads of other crafting stash. If you havn't any digi stamps you can get hold of some great images from Sandra or Chris the DU2DS founders and ace artists!!
This card was made from an image from Sandra coloured with prismacolors, the background scene was created with Adirondak inks brayered on using a torn paper stencil to create the hills. The paper was a download from one of the sites offering free scrapbooking paper to download (do a search there's loads out there) the blackberries are a dimension fourth stamp coloured and covered with glossy accents and heaven knows where I aquired the leaf stamp!
Now I've only 2 days left to do the next card for fridays challenge. Where does the time go??
See u soon
Oh I forgot! I've had some really good news!
My crafty pal Janet texted me the other day to say "MICHELLE YOU'VE WON THE ATC CHALLENGE IN CRAFT STAMPER" Didn't really believe it till I bought a copy today and I've had time to look a few times and take it in. It seems so long since I entered, I'd almost forgotten about it but it's there alright! Not only that but I've won the Millie set from Tinker and Co for my Bunny Cards. Thanks to Katy Fox for selecting my entry and to Jo for her lovely comments about my work. I'm cited (excited as my son used to say it as a babe)
Smile for me!!
