At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Vintage.We have the super LEJ Designs as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Nonni’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

Sadly this is Nonni’s last challenge with us 😦 Going to miss you and your beautiful creations.

For my card I’ve used the beautiful Fair Maiden  by LEJ Designs and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.I wanted to go for a more sepia type colouring but kept her skin in more pinky tones (I’ve tried before with sepia toned skin and hated it so much it ended up in the bin!).I added some pink to her cheeks,lips and the rose she is holding.I teamed her with some pretty Papermania Vintage Notes papers.All edges have been distressed with both inks and a tool.The lace I picked up in The Works for a very reasonable price and it was nice to see some more crafty bargains making their way back onto their shelves 🙂 I had a play with some Fran-tage Embossing Enamel for the first time.It was fun but sooo messy,or maybe that was just me XD .I made some rolled roses and a bigger one using a flower die which I cut,stuck and layered up.The metal frame,also a new addition in The Works and originally silver,got the Fran-tage treatment too.The sentiment behind it was from a freebie stamp set that came with September’s issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.The frame is held in place with a couple of pearl brads.

With regret I have to tell you that this will also be my last challenge for Digi Sketch Challenge 😦

I’ve had a blast meeting some lovely,talented people and watching the challenge grow.May it continue successfully in the future.Thanks Kelly for being such a great leader.

Ava Flowery Summer

cypdt19thaug

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Summer Flowers.We have the fabulous Digital Paper Craft as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used the sweet,sweet Ava Girl by Digital Paper Craft and coloured her with a mix of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.The FlexMarkers were used alone on her skin,hair and shoes.I introduced a couple of ProMarker colours on her dress to get the shading and hues I wanted.The papers were a freebie with Quick Cards Made Easy.It also came with a CD-rom full of coordinating elements.I resized and punched out the sentiment then coated it in 3D Crystal Lacquer.Once this was dry I mounted it onto a tag,threaded with paper twine,from the same CD-rom.This was then bordered with some punched flowers shaped with a ball tool.I like to make leaves to match with the same punch by trimming them down and adding the vein detail with a very fine ball tool.As the image is quite large with a lot of white space I decided to punch the floral border in white to keep in with this and to give an extra lift to the whole card.I dotted some Liquid Pearls into the center of the flowers on the border and the red ones too.Some flat backed pearls were used to embellish the cut out corners.I did also apply some gloss to her shoes too but it doesn’t really show in the main pic so here’s a closer view 🙂
