This week at Digital Tuesday it's my turn to host the challenge and I chose "It's all about the girls".
If you follow my blog you will know that I am not very good at making male cards lol, so of course the challenge had to be something girly :
I was asked by someone at my girls school to make two cards, one for her Daughter who will be 5 on her birthday and the other for one of the other kids at school who will also be 5 on her birthday.
She had saw a card I made a few weeks ago which was a vintage style easel card with Tilda on it and she loved it so wanted me to do something similar but more suitable for a little girl, so here's what I came up with for one of the cards (the other I will show tomorrow).
It is an easel card, but the bottom bit has the little girls name etc on it and I didn't want to show that on my blog just incase she see's it on her before her birthday. The bottom is just the same papers and I used the same lace and added her name.
I did do a lot of distressing but I didn't want it to look too vintage as it is for a 5 year old, so I choose this cute Princess Anya image by the Greetings Farm to keep it more child friendly.
The papers are by K&Co, the larger roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the smaller ones are from Janlynn.com. Everything else is from my stash, and Anya is coloured with Promarkers.
Now the card is done, I can tell you some news!
First of all I have been asked to be on the Charisma Cardz design team and my first card for them will be tomorrow :)
Also my 2 oldest children Liam and Rhianna are proud dt members (or secret agents as they call themselves lol) of a brand new kids challenge blog called Messy's Mini Missions and the first challenge will be on the 1st of October.
So if you have any mini crafters in your life, let them know about the new challenges/missions so they can join in! There will be prizes to be won and there is even some candy up for grabs on the blog already before the first challenge starts, so why not pop over and check it out, and it would be great if you could spread the word about the new blog :)
That's it from me for today, but I will be back tomorrow with my first card for Charisma!
