So let's begin!!!
Firstly a reminder that The Tartan Blog Hop starts on Wednesday (9.30am UK time) HERE at Gill's Blog!! There may be prizes along the way so join in the fun!!!
Also I am excited to tell you that I won first prize over at Polka Doodles Challenge Blog and won Public Vote at Quirky Crafts! I also got top three at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings!! This was all for my first ever corner bookmark which you can see a couple of posts below!!
As a result of winning public vote at Quirky crafts, I have been invited to be a Guest designer for their next challenge so I am super excited about that!! I only hope that I can make a card worthy of the position!! I'm sure that I can though especially after making this card:
This would have to be one of my favourite cards so far!! I feel like I have stepped it up to another level with my creativity!! After seeing my friend Sam's card where she used her chalks to create a sky on one of her recent cards, I decided to have a go at creating a sky using a punched out scallop circle and my chalks!! I also used chalk to create some grass but you can't see it behind the picket fence!! When I originally put this card together I didn't have the houses behind the fence but I felt the card was missing something so I coloured them up and added them and pop! they just made the card!! I then stuck Tilda on and added the flowers! That is where I left it but the next morning when I looked at it I felt it needed something to fill the gap between the houses and Tilda so I added the butterflies!! I coloured Tilda and the houses in with my Tria Markers, copics and H20's. (if you would like to know what colours I used please feel free to contact me!!) I've added kindyglitz to the flower tilda is holding and on the butterflies!!.
