It’s New Challenge Time For Crafty Girls

Morning everyone!  It’s time for a brand new challenge over at Crafty Girls!  Our sponsors for this fortnight are Dilly Beans and Di’s Digi Downloads.

My card for this challenge features Amalia’s Heart by Dilly Beans.  I hadn’t used any Dilly Beans images until Christmas, but I am firmly hooked!  I love the simple style of the images, and I like to present them on an uncluttered card!  So, with this in mind, here’s my card for this challenge:

I coloured the image using Pro-Markers, adding the flower pattern to Amalia’s dress by adding dots in a slightly darker shade once the initial colour layer had dried.  The white centres were added using a white Sakura Jelly Roll pen.  The strip heart paper was a freebie from a magazine.  For the mat beneath the image, I coloured a scrap piece of linen marked paper with Fired Brick Distress Ink and was delighted when it turned out to be pretty much the same colour as the hearts on the patterned paper!! The little sentiment arrow is from the Silhouette Store – I got a set of three different sentiments, and love them so much that I’m almost certain you’ll be seeing the very soon….  Finally, I embossed the card base using an Embossalicious chevron folder.

  1. This card is great. The way you patterned her dress yourself…cute, unique and shows you love the craft. I love how you “made” so much of this card yourself..inking the paper to match and even embossing the white. This is a CAS card but my thought is CAS is Clean and Sweet for yours. You spent time on this creation and it shows. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Shelter challenge and hope you’ll join us again. Your art work is really nice. Hugs, Gail
