I’ve don’t think I’ve ever used a Chi Chi Memories image before; difficult to believe as they are sooo cute! I have used Summer Fun Girl for my DT make, pairing it with a branch from Tiddly Inks For The Birds. With a little playing around, I was able to merge the two images in the Silhouette software, then cut the shape out as a whole. I used ProMarkers to colour the image, with a Sakura Jelly Roll for the polka dots.
For the background, I just added some clouds that I had left over from my hot air balloon box card, to a piece of sky blue AC cardstock (which has a lovely texture to it). I added a little shape to the clouds by popping some shadow to the edges and blending out; they are cut from a lovely piece of hammer embossed cardstock, so they have some good cloud texture too. I attached the sky behind another piece of the hammer embossed card using 3D pads to give some depth and then added my image to the front of the circle aperture. A little pink and white twine, with a pink and white polka button and pink seed beads finished it off!
It looks like it’s a week of firsts for me….my first Chi Chi Memories image and now, my first entry into the Muse Challenge. Marion Vagg’s adorable owl makes good use of his branch (see below), as does the little girl in my image! My white layer creates a frame around the image, and I have also echoed the blue frame in Marion’s card by bringing my background through to to edges of my card.
Head over to Crafting From The Heart to see what the rest of the DT have made to inspire you this week!
