Hope you are all keeping well? If not, then I hope you get better very soon!!
Wish blogger would get better soon. Honestly, it's being a right pain in the rear end. I'm sure most of you are experiencing some probs. Mine are; having to sign in twice to get on the dashboard : not being able to comment at all (keep being directed to sign in page) : pics being rejected when uploading.
So I must apologise to everyone! I have been reading your blogs, and trying to leave comments when it works, but mostly it doesn't. Blooming frustrating or what!!!
Anyways, let's get onto my card today, which is my sample for the new Delicious Doodles Challenge. This week we are after your creations with 'Lovely Lace' as the theme.
I made a twisted easel card for this, (love doing these at the moment) and have used the Small Butterfly image from the Delicious Doodles Shop. This was coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, scanned to the compy and printed in two sizes, then fussy cut round.
I have cheated a bit with the lacey doily seen here. It isn't a real one!! I found a digi-version on Crafts-u-print and have used that placed on a pinky coloured digi-paper and then printed. I printed it a few times, cut one out for layering over the real lace trim, and used the third for the base part.
I was also a bit crafty with the base. As well as having the two smaller butterfly images (whose wings were curled over using my bone folder), I made a lace flower using three trims. One is a fancy trim, one is the same lace as the front panel, and in the centre is a smaller lace. I have also used inks to colour the lace, see below pic:
Righty then folks. Off to do some more doodling, oh, and I suppose I ought to do some of the dreaded HW. . . ugh! Catch ya later!!
