It’s called Roger That and I thought the specs makes it extra cute! My god-daughter actually has geeky frames like that so maybe I will send this card to her. For papers I used the new digi papers I bought from Pixels & Company, specifically the Scarlett-set.
Ta-dah! I used plaid and woodgrain patterns. The latter is just barely visible as the image frame. The plaid was printed in two different scales. The larger is actually printed directly on the 6×6 card base! I made a small mistake with the printing so I had to cut the margins off but the slightly smaller size is not really noticeable in real life.
Aaargh! I just noticed that I forgot to colour in the nose bridge!!! Other techniques used are doodle stitching, regular stitching and some inking on the edges.
So sweet, don’t you think?
Over all I’m very pleased with this card. You can take part in Craft Your Passion’s Totally Teal by clicking the hyperlink. There are prizes from Saturated Canary and The Robin’s Nest to be won! I’m also sharing my talent in following challenges:
It’s challenge time! I got very excited when I found out we’d be getting sponsor images from Sugar Kissed Cottage. They are a mother/daughter team whose blog Two Crazy Crafters I’ve been following for quite long and who design these cutest vintage inspired stamps. Here’s the one I used:
Puppy- Digital stamp by Sugar Kissed Cottage
Since I’ve been their fan for ever, I’d already designed several cards in my head using their images so putting this card together was quick. Since Valentine Day is coming around soon, I chose pink as my main colour. I have a feeling I need to send this card to a certain 4-year old, pink loving Parisian…
This is the week you definitely should take part in Craft Your Passion Challenge. The theme is Vintage/Shabby Chic and you can win FOUR images by Sugar Kissed Cottage. Since I like winning too, I’m also sharing this card in following challenges:
Yes, it’s time for the weekly challenge card! The theme is a recipe: 3 designer papers, ribbon or twine, something circle shaped and we were asked to use an image from Delicious Doodle.
I requested the Robin Redbreast (who is a distant relative of me, Niina Itchynipple) and had some (a lot) trouble with the colouring. As you have seen in the past, my colouring skills leave a lot to be desired. I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface on what I could do with my ProMarkers. However, this time I couldn’t even decide what colours to use! I tried realistic colours. Nope. I tried leaving the image black and white. No, that didn’t work out either. I was getting frustrated. I stared and stared at the image until I suddenly got a feeling of familiarity. I’ve seen something like this before!
See where I am going with this? After seeing the image, my card came together very quickly and here it is:
My patterned papers are: the one on the background, the black paper is actually brown chevron I stained black and the blue circles were white but I coloured them blue with my ProMarker True Blue. The heart on the ribbon (twill tape) is also drawn with a ProMarker, colour Poppy.
I love the graphic style of this card and it’s already on its way to someone. Don’t forget to take part in this week’s challenge on Craft Your Passion where you can win 4 digi’s by Delicious Doodles. I’m also sharing this card in following challenges:
I looked at the picture and thought hey, it’s an autumn rainbow. From rainbow I got hippies and from autumn I got the colours. Here’s my Autumn Hippie-card:
See the text on the lighter paper? Flower generation, love…That’s hippies, my friend. I bought these papers at Amalia and they are all from the same set.
The shapes were fussy cut from a patterned paper, the big flower in the center originally had some journaling space and I wrote a greeting on it. It turned out ugly so I covered it with the same paper I used on the background. When I eventually use this card, I’ll just add a number or a greeting, depending on the recipient.
Hearts! And glitter! So girly! So pretty!
I just love these papers. I might have to go back and buy the rest of them. You know, for hoarding. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to take part in the challenge! There are prizes! As always!
I nearly forgot to post this week’s DT-card. The theme is Witches and I used this adorable digi stamp by a Day For Daisies.
The spiderwebs are fussy cut from the same paper I used on the background and raised with some 3d-dots. The little witches are coloured with ProMarkers except the tights where I used orange gel pen. From Ikea! Did you know that they have a small selection of crafty goodies on their Family-collection? Even some scrapbook papers…
Here’s the link to this week’s challenge, you still have a day to participate!
