Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight is to make a card or in fact any project but it must include either the word ‘Friend’, ‘Friends’ or ‘Friendship’. We have two great sponsors as usual. Sir Stampalot who have provided us with two gorgeous sentiment stamp sheets (see the main blog for details) and also Saturated Canary who offer our winner two of their stunning digis.
I have used an image from our second Sponsor called ‘Springtime’, and coloured her with a combination of Copics and Promarkers.
What I LOVE above digital images is the ability to have them any size you like. This was particularly handy with this card as I wanted her to sit inside my new Marianne Oval Passe-Partout Die and the inside of that is only 78mmx58mm, so you can see that a normal stamp might have struggled to fit inside that small space. Of course, the disadvantage is that it’s more difficult to colour smaller areas. Thank heavens for the Promarker Fine Tips!
My lovely patterned paper arrived free with a craft magazine on Saturday! Fast work eh, lol…. The plainer lemon paper that the image has been cut from was also in the same free paper pack. The lovely Marianne Die has the gorgeous cut out area and also a larger plain die to cut an aperture into the paper, so it’s particularly effective for this card.
I created my sentiment on my pc and printed it onto safmat.
I think the paper is pretty enough and already has enough lovely flowers that I didn’t want to embellish it any further, so I ended up with a nice CAS card.
