Well, I've been playing with some of my new stash this morning. I've made a card using my very first Saturated Canary image, Springtime, which I downloaded from KristySmith's new site. I've printed her on Neenah cardstock and coloured her with copics. The Neenah card is actually pretty good and I will probably buy it from now on. The copics blended nicely with no bleeding. I used Spellbinder dies to cut the image out and inked the outside with Tumbled Glass DI with the die still in place. I've also used Little Claire's bunting stamps for the happy birthday bunting stamped on a variety of core'dinations cardstock. The papers are Papermania Lucy Cromwell. I made the little lace flower by cutting a length of guipure lace (Wild Orchid) and putting a running stitch through it and gathering it up to form the flower, I really like how this turned out. The little flower in the middle is Wild Orchid with a little crystal stickles. Simple, but effective. I also used my new Memory Box Elegant Scollwork die, but I cut it up a little to suit my needs.
I'm hoping to enter my card into the following challenges:
