I tried something different,well for me anyway!I’ve coloured this adorable Little Sweeper from Digi Doodle Shop in sepia tones.I have to be honest and I chucked my first attempt in the bin!Oh the shame 😦 I pride myself on NOT throwing stuff away! I tried to colour her skin in just the lighter tones I’d used for her clothing but she ended up looking grey faced so I chose pinkier beige tones and I’m a lot happier with the result 😀 I used a mix of pretty floral paper with a newspaper print one.Altho’ it’s a little difficult to see the bottom strip as I suddenly decided to lay some raffia lace ribbon over it.I layered some die cut flowers and chopped ’em up so they’d add interest to the top of the card.I finished it with some Distress Inked vintage seam binding and another flower topped with a wooden button one,tied with some paper twine.Sadly this is my last post for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges.Not an easy decision but sometimes you have to make those kind of choices 😦 I started with the team back in October 2010 and I’d like to say thanks to Karen and Ruth for being great DT Leaders,to all the lovely crafters I’ve met through the team and of course Judy and her Mom for creating and providing the gorgeous images. Wishing you all the best for the future 🙂
