My Fab Followers and Blogging Friends

Tuesday, 3 April 2012


Hi again, it's Tuesday, and that means it's DAY 3 of our New Release Bonanza at The Crafty Pad. Today, we have another faberooney image, called 'Lulu With Brolly.'

Gorgeous right? Well, yes, of course she is, and today sees yet more great work over on the challenge blog from the DT...please go and take a look! I was lucky enough to be given this image to work with, and here's my card:

 I used a white 6x6 card base, then everything else is layered onto Kraft card and a lovely orange card too. I decided to paper-piece her umbrella in matching DPs, the rest of the image is coloured with Promarkers. The raindrops are blue gems (round as I didn't have any teardrop shaped ones.)

My DPs are an eclectic mix, including some by Summer Driggs and are called 'A Little Spring in Your Step.' The sentiment says 'Showers of Warm Wishes.'

I added a fancy border to the edge of my card, and inked the edges of everything, to soften them. The ribbon,  gems, punched borders, flowers etc are either fromor made from my stash of goodies.

You probably know the drill by now, but just in case not, here's a reminder...
