Lexi’s Creations #53 No Straight Edges

Today at Lexi’s Creations we would like to see your projects with NO straight edges.

We are sponsored by Letraset image who have a five pack of promarkers up for grabs.

Lexi 53

I made a card base by cutting out two Marianne decorative circles, the second one of which I folded in half and glued in place to form an upside down V so the card could stand. I have edged both it and the inner circle – also a Marianne die – with DI in Dried Marigold.

The image is Georgina Giraffe from Lexi at Fairy Dust Crafts, and I coloured her in with prismas and OMS. The flourishes are from Die Namics, my new favourite ones! The little charm I had in my stash. You can’t see too well here but I coloured the charm with a combination of orange and brown promarkers as it was too silver for the soft oranges of the card.

I’m entering this into the following challenges:-
