Pretty in Pink
Afternoon all, I know it's not often you see me other than a Sketch N Stash day but I thought I'd enter a couple of challenges with this card made for a family member's 13th birthday.
* Image - Mo Manning 'Rae with journal'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Serif CA2 and DaisyTrail digis
* Punch - Nestabilities Picot Edge Circles
* Everything else from my stash
I recently purchased Craft Artist 2 from DaisyTrail and have been playing with digital scrapbooking (I may share some pages in the next couple of days for your opinions but please be kind and remember I'm new to this)
Now, you need to understand that I decided to start scrapbooking about 7 odd years ago and purchased a number of beautiful K and Co scrapbooks in all sizes, lots of very pretty 12 x 12 papers and numerous matching embellishments.
All set to go then? No! I never got around to doing anything more than a 6 x 6 album for my Mum containing some vintage photos of her family.
So, I have decided I'm finally going to take the plunge and have so far, made 3 or 4 digital scrapbook pages. I'm really enjoying it and although I'm still doing very basic layouts, I'm fairly happy with the finished results so far.
In view of the fun I had messing about with the digis, I thought I'd try making a card and this is the result. Again, I'm quite pleased with it, although I can now see all the things I could have done better, still that's what learning is all about isn't it? Hopefully, my skills will improve with time and practice.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Give us a 'P'
Polka Doodles and Studio 12 Digi Choosday - Anything Goes
CutiePie Challenge - Cute and Tag-Tastic
