Digital Delights’ Guest Designer

I was thrilled recently to win a challenge at Delightful Challenges and am honoured to have a guest designer spot for them this week.

I chose Splish Splash Suzie to work with, and thought I would do a ‘different’ take on a Valentine’s card.

DDLL Guest

This is for someone very special, but not in a romantic way, so red and roses were not really appropriate.

I paper pieced most of Suzie with the same papers I used in the main body of the card, which are all from Nitwits. The rest of suzie is coloured with copics. I also used glossy accents to make her umbrella wet looking and her welly boots too.

The diecut over the top of her is from Marianne designs, the clouds are from Memory Box, and the gorgeous flourish under the flowers is from Tattered Lace. I made the sentiment on my pc. The crochet flowers were in my stash, as were the two little charms and the ribbons they are hanging from. I didn’t have any green paper/card to match the patterned papers so I coloured some up with one of the colours I used in her coat.

I am entering this into the following:-
