I have a couple of new cards to blog today.
This first one is the one I sent to Alijj (cjcockroft on MSE) for the April card swap on Crafty Place, the theme of which was "green". Hopefully I haven't spoiled the surprise as she should have received it by now. I have covered the card blank with Core'dinations Whitewash card in yellow, cuttlebugged with Swiss Dots and sanded. A mat of green pearlescent card, overlaid with more Whitewash card but green this time, which I punched with my Fiskars leaf edge punch then put some ribbon on. The digi image is a freebie which I coloured with watercolour pencils but didn't use water, just coloured with the pencils, then chalked around the edges and matted on the same pearlescent green card. Finished off with green card candy.
This next card I made today and was inspired by a sketch I saw while browsing through a sketch challenge blog, it was an old challenge so I couldn't enter the card as it was some time ago. The papers are Zoe Pearn freebies "So Sweet". This is the first time I've printed off this paper and the colours are lovely. I've coloured the image with Promarkers, chalked the edge and matted onto blue Core'dinations Gemstones card. I've used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch and some blue spotty ribbon.
