A spot of colour :)


Well,here is my second card as Guest Designer for Imagine That!Digis by Kris! at their Creative Playground Challenge.The theme this month is Spring and it runs from April 2nd – May 6th.Stop on by the blog to check out all the wonderful inspiration there!

I thought I’d go creative with the colours on this cutie from the Ladybugs set by Imagine That!Digis by Kris and make him really swing too!I made an aperture tent card and once I’d coloured the image with Copic Ciao Markers along with some white gel pen highlights I fussy cut it.There are also touches of  3D Crystal Lacquer on his eyes,nose and the ends of his antennae.The branch is cut freehand then the image is attached using jump rings to allow him to swing freely.The sentiment is from the same set and the colourful papers are Blossoms & Bugs Digi Papers which compliment the Ladybugs perfectly.A scattering of die cut flowers with micro bead centres and a couple of bows to finish everything off 🙂
