Well, I don’t know if Spring is finally here to stay but we are all about the ‘Spring Shades’ over at Totally Gorjuss this week. The new Spring Basics collection from Maja Designs (available from Live and Love Crafts) is perfect for this theme and I had to buy pretty much every design in the collection as they were all just so beautiful!
I used several layers of pretty papers (I had so many to choose from!) all matted onto Kraft, then stitched and inked around the edges. Here you can see the layers and the little ribbon loop under the button;
I also decided to add to my collection of Saturated Canary images as I have loved these awesome digistamps by Krista for a long time but only have a couple. I thought Ava with her balloon was a great match for the spring papers and I have coloured her with my Copics – I think I am slowly getting the hang of them but still have lots to learn.
It’s Saturday again and that means a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and the theme this week, as you may already have guessed, is ‘Something Blue.’ We have TWO fabulous sponsors this week in the shape of Bugaboo and Quixotic Paperie so two good reasons to join in with our challenge and maybe win some goodies!
I have used a LOTV stamp…yes, another one, but you can never have too many I think 😉
You will have noticed that it is for a bloke so of course, that meant keeping embellishments to a minimum – always tricky! Instead I went for lots of layers and a cute flag banner with the recipient’s name on it, which was all cut by hand. Hmm, I’m sure I could find a die for that…
I coloured the image with ProMarkers as I did this before my recent conversion to Copics and just look at those cute mice baking away…
