Another 3 challenges with 1 card?
I can't believe that I've actually achieved this for the second time, I'm usually absolutely useless at making my cards do more than one challenge at a time!
The first challenge is Cute Card Thursday where I've just scraped in by the skin of my teeth with their challenge of 'Getting Edgy', I sanded the edges of my card and also added some doodles for good measure.
Second challenge coming up, Papertake Weekly who asked us to use 'Spots and Stripes', well I've used the spots and I'm hoping that the blocks of colour on this paper together with the edging I doodled will count as the stripes (not 100% sure about that, so fingers crossed)
The final one today is for My Time to Craft and their theme this week of 'Black and White plus one'. For some strange reason I always use red in these challenges and I vowed not to this time, but c'est la vie, I used red again!
* Image - Tilda with Ladybird
* Colouring medium - Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils
* Papers - Mmmm not sure, I think Papermania
* Embellishments - from my stash
I hadn't used this sweet Tilda before and unfortunately, she's not looking her best as I messed up with the pencils and water pen. I'm so used to using promarkers for colouring now that I found this really difficult, but I'm thinking - ladybird...summer...bit of sunburn - what do you think, does it work? LOL!
This is also the first time that I've given an image black hair and trust me, it's not easy getting that right either, so all in all a bit of a disaster. I've just realised that my scanner has made the colours look a bit blurry, so she looks even worse here than in real life now. Just don't look too closely!!!
