By The Cute and Girly- Things With Wings

As promised, here’s my DT card that I made for By The Cute and Girly where the theme this month is “Things With Wings”.

One of our sponsors this month is Digital Delights who also gave the design team some images to use. I  have used Bizzy Bear for my card and coloured him with the usual Promarkers (colours listed at the end) and I added a pile of Dazzling Diamonds glitter Smile
The papers are all K&Co from the Hopscotch pad, matted with some shimmery yellow paper that I had in my stash. Not my kind of usual colours, but it’s a nice change I suppose lol.
I used some raffia that I got at my local craft shop Holburn crafts in Aberdeen, and just wrote No 1 DAD on the same yellow paper and cut them out….something I have never done before, but this card was for Fathers Day and the kids helped with it, so I thought it was quite fitting for this card (because it looks like a kid has done it!! lol)

Promarker colours used.
Skin……oops I mean fur! lol I’m too used to writing skin lol
Fur: cinnamon, raw sienna, burnt sienna (cheeks baby pink)
Bee and Bears stripes: tulip yellow, pastel yellow, canary and saffron (I think…really I just used nearly all the yellows! lol) cool grey 2, 3 and 4
Grass: leaf green, meadow green

Our other sponsors this month are our 2 regular sponsors, the wonderful Simon Says Stamp and the equally wonderful Joanna Sheen who are offering $20 and £10 gift certificates!! Also we have some guest designer spots for the September challenge if anyone fancies joining us for that. Designers will be announced with our July winners on the 1st of August and you would have a whole month to make your projects (minimum of 2 projects which can be anything you like as the challenge blog is for ALL crafts).
Hope to see lots of you joining in this month!

Hugs Lora x
