challenges that is :D I used my pretty lady from below to make a card that fits with The Daring Cardmakers Challenge which is ' Ice and Snow' and The Shabby Tea Room Challenge using 'stripes'. I'm also joining in with Gingersnap Creations Challenge for the first time with their 'Shades of Blue'.
I made a round card for a change which reminds me of a snowball...lol but also used cold colours to fit in with DCM theme. There are lots of hand drawn stripes for TSTR theme... I am so into sketching and colouring right now so this was fun.
I drew lots of funny shaped flowers and leaves and coloured those and the striped border with my blue Sakura Glaze pen. I love these pens because they give a gorgeous shiny embossed look.
Unfortunately this wasn't really picked up well with my photos but I can assure you that the blue bits really shine and glisten. I used 3d pads under my flowers and the main image cos I love things to be 3d. It's a long time since I spent this long on a card but it was really therapeutic. Think I need to be sketching and colouring a lot more :D
Thanks for looking and don't forget you can get your own glam girlie free from the post below.
