Pretty in pink…and blue

This weeks challenge at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is Blue and Pink.For full details on how to play and be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop please visit the challenge blog.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s beautiful work.

I’ve used the  pretty Hydrangea image from Digi Doodle Shop for my card. Printed onto water colour paper and coloured using Distress Inks.I’ve also used a little Distress Ink applied with Cut ‘n’ Dry Foam on the edges of the image and card base.The Prima Hydrangeas were white but they’ve been dyed with Distress Inks to match.Rather than a brad or gem I decided to use a recent purchase of stamens to fill the middles.Once the wires were trimmed at the back I applied some Pinflair Glue Gel to keep them in place.This also adhered them to the card.

A ‘mice’ cup of tea

There is a sketch to follow at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best this week.Play along to be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop!You could even be in the running to join us as GDT for a month.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s gorgeous work while you’re there.

Don’t forget there are new specials instore for the month of May!Check out my sidebar and click on through to take you there.

For my card I’ve used the totally adorable Mouse In Tea Cup (Cecil) and coloured him with ProMarkers with added white gel pen highlights.To add a little shading under and on the cup I used the Tea Green ProMarker and Blender.I find this gives a softer more subtle colour than using a grey. For a little extra shine I went over the tea cup with a glaze pen.Here’s a close up to show the detail :

I actually tuned the sketch on it’s side so I could incorperate the eyelets onto the edge of the image piece.I chose a gingham background and lacy edged dies to got with the country feel of the image.

Here are the new release  Mother’s Day special images :

For my card I’ve used the rather adorableMother’s Day Special Boy in the Pot from Ai Factory.But any of the images would look fabulous.I’ve coloured him with Promarkers and added Glamour Dust to the flowers.The two die cut circles have also been edged with it and I’ve dotted the middle of the flower brad too.I picked up these gorgeous Ooh La La For Her papers from my local craft warehouse for the bargain price of £3.99!They’re double sided and come with a coordinating accessory sheet.I tried to show this by turnng back one corner and pining it in place with a brad.This is also my first attempt at doing one of these bows with the twirly tails.
