Miss Holly

Good morning folks.  Hope you are all okay and enjoying your bank holiday Monday if you are in England, otherwise hope you are having a good Monday.

Today starts a new challenge at Crafting from the Heart with our usual theme of 'Anything Goes'.

My shopping list

20cm x 20cm cream card blank
cream, red and green card
sue wilson dies - flower and leaf dies
copic x-presss it smooth blending card
8x8 embossing folder
chameleon pens
copic markers
spectrum pencils
tonic nuvo pearl drops
  1. I began by printing out my digi images onto copic x-press smooth card and colouring them in.
  2. I then set up a template on my scn, a square (19cm by 19cm) with a circle in the middle in red (the circle needs to be big enough to fit Miss Holly inside.
  3. Cur another in cream  with a smaller outer edge (18cm x 18cm) and larger circle,
  4. I then ran the cream mat through an embossing folder and placed both onto a 20cm x 20cm cream card base.
  5. I used my snc to fussy cut my images out placing a 1mm seam allowance and placed them onto my card.
  6. Finally I die cut my flowers in red and cream plus two leaves in green using a sue wilsons die 
  7. I finished by putting a 'blob' of pearl drops in the centre.
