This might just be a quickie to show the card I gave to my Mum for Mother's Day yesterday. My first shaped easel card - I love this, definitely going to try more of these:
The more I see this image, the more I fall in love with it - it is a digi from Cuddly Buddly called Daffadowndillies. It was perfect for my Mum's card as she loves daffodils. I coloured her with promarkers - I do find it difficult adding light and shade to something that has a lot of detail so I'm not over impressed with my colouring of her jacket or skirt.
I used my Nestabilities Labels 10 die for the shape. I didn't want to add too much so thought it would be good to emboss the orange pearlescent card, using a Cuttlebug folder called flower fantasy. And then I added Diamond Stickles around the image plate - I love how that adds a little something LOL!
There are two stamps used for the sentiment - the Lots of Love is from a Christmas set from Anita's stamps, and the Mum was in a free set with Crafts Beautiful magazine this month. Then just added the dew drops. I thought about adding flowers but decided I didn't want to overpower the lovely image.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - Emboss it
Polkadoodles - No printed backing papers
Make It Colourful - Use bright colours
AI Factory - Bright as day
Stamp Something - Use a digi
Well, maybe that wasn't as short as I anticipated. Thanks for looking, and see you soon.
Love, Andrea xx
