Creatalicious Challenge #3

Yay - I finally found some ME time today and disappeared into my crafting corner to play along with this month's Creatalicious Challenge. The rules are

* Use only scrap/used sheets of DP
* You can use new cardstock
* Add flowers handmade by you

Well I think I managed to fill all the criteria!! This is another Mo Manning illustration from Digital Pencil Too and this card came together pretty quickly as I already had these lovely gals coloured up ready to go - they are perfect for teenagers! The DP is from Stampin' Up and the flower is made from both sides of the same DP. The tutorial for the flower by Michele Roos is HERE. I've made this one before and I'm sure I'll be making it again - I think they are FABULOUS.

I've also "made my own" DP by stamping my SU Gratuitous Graffiti background stamp on it in the same colour ink as the CS - Pumpkin Pie. The Night of Navy CS has been "thumped" with the matching ink to add more texture. And YES - I used my distressing tool again seeing it was sitting on the desk waiting to be shown some more love - LOL

Debbie, gorgoeus card. Wonderful image of Mo's. (I've been neglecting my Mo's images--I should do something about that!) Awesome colouring job as always. Re the distressing, maybe it's suppose to grow on you. The more you do it, the more you'll like it..LOL.

Hugs.

Again, such a beautiful card! and I can see why you love those flowers - they are georgous!

I have 'scrolled' through your bolg and can't believe how much I have missed!!! Including the blog candy! serves me right for being away so long LOL And I think I have found my Chrissy card idea for my work collegues, thanks to you :)

Always love your work - Have you really only been doing it for a year?

Debbie M said...

Ps: sometimes I feel like you are a long lost sister as I feel we have so much in common (just wish I was as talented LOL but lets not go there)And now I see you also do embroidery sewing! I too have that candy cane holder design among others but I have yet to try it out.
