Yeah, wierd title huh? That's because today I have been a naughty girl and combined two DT pieces into one card - me bad!! Tee-hee!!
So, at The Creative Cottage this week we want to see 'Loads of bling', and at The Sisterhood of Crafters we'd like to see 'More than one flower', a nice easy embellishment challenge. Not too easy then peeps, which is why I managed to combine the two. I have used a sketch from Midnight Madness for my card layout:
And here is my card:
My papers are from The Creative Cottage Shop - 'Trick or Treat' kit. I have used these papers to make all the 'flowers' on this card. I cut out the little cobweb shapes on the different coloured sheets, and then shaded the edges with ink. I then popped a black glittery brad in the centres, scrunched them up and unfolded a bit, finally adding some purple stickles at the edges. Here is a wee close-up piccie:
I have liberally smothered the cobwebby backing paper in some clear stickles too. The corner bits on the image frame are made with a shapeabilities 'fleur-de-lys' die, trimmed to size, and again smothered in yellow stickles this time. Hope it's 'blingy' enough for you girls!
My image is a new one of my own 'Cloaked Lady', available in my Delicious Doodles Shop. I coloured her with the usual watercolour pencils (sorry, that's all I own for colouring!) before scanning into the compy and printing out for layering. I hope I have managed to get the feeling of depth I was after. Do you think she's on her way to meet with the coven? LOL
This fits a couple of other challenges too funnily enough! At Haunted Design House and at Totally Papercrafts the theme is 'Magic', and at Delightful Challenges the theme is 'Sparkle'.
Righty then folks, need to brave the elements and visit the garden centre now. Trying to source some decent fruit bushes for my 'new style' edible garden. Attempting to have a comby of stuff that looks good and is also edible, but I also want to have butterflies and bees, so I need normal flowers and bushes too.
Also still trying to finish me painting, tidying up after the sproggs ready for MIL's arrival, and still got a door to make, along with a frame. Plus I have to finish up some new images and sort out me Delicious Doodles Blog ready for the new DT announcement on Friday.
Oh, my head hurts!!
