I'm a Guest Designer at Michelle Perkett Studios

Hi my friends, today is a special day for me as I am the Guest Designer at Michelle Perkett Studios. It is a bitter-sweet moment if truth be known, as I am their final GD as the challenge blog is closing down, and this week's challenge is their last.

I am really sad to see the end of the challenge blog, but so pleased that Michelle will be continuing to create her wonderful images and selling them in her Etsy shop.

I used the beautiful image called 'Air' one of the elements images to create two different cards...one using soft pastels and the other bold brights. Here they are:

Soft Pastels Card #1 - A Spring Card


I am entering THIS CARD (#1) into the following challenges:


Bold Brights Card #2 (a 6" scalloped square card)
 



My DPs are all freebies from magazines by Pink Petticoat and Kate Knight. I used Promarkers to colour both images, and everything else is from my stash.

This week's final challenge at MPS is 'Thank You' ... I do hope you will be able to join in and bid the mermaids a fond farewell.

I am going to enter THIS CARD (#2) into the following challenges:

Before I go, I'd like to say hello and give a big wave to my latest followers: Crafty Chris and Jemima's Gems (no link that I can find...) Thanks so much for joining me on my crafting journey.

Both of your cards are absolutely wonderful. Love the way you embossed and then distressed the red piece on the 2nd card. Thanks so much for playing in our JUST SOME LINES challenge this time:)

Two terrific cards! Totally different feel with the two very different color combos. (I like the bright bold one best!) Thanks for joining us at SRU!
