The last fortnight has disappeared rather rapidly again, and there's a new new challenge starting today at Lexi's Creations. Our challenge for you this time is For a Friend.
Our sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Lexi from Fairy Dust Crafts who is offering our lucky winner 5 digital images from her store (you should pop over there and see the other goodies she has and, if you spend over £10.00 she offers free postage and packing too!). Lexi has, as usual, given us our free choice of image for this challenge. Here is the card I've made:
My card recipe is as follows:
- Base Card - made from Centura Pearl in Dark Chocolate cut and folded to a 10.5cm square card.
- Backing Paper - is cream with a pearlised sheen to it. I got mine in a multi-pack of different papers and card.
- Image - This gorgeous scene is called Butterflies and it is one of the talented Lexi's (Fairy Dust Crafts) creations - pop over to Lexi's store by clicking on the link ... I can assure you that you won't be disappointed! After colouring in the image, I cut it into 9 inch squares, and then distressed the edges of these using brown chalk and a damp cotton bud. I deliberately keep my colour scheme muted and used my Spectrum Noir Pens in the following colours:
- Flower - GB3, GB4, GB5, CG4
- Butterflies - CR11, GB5, EB7
- Grass - CG1, CG2
- Sky - Light Blue Chalk
- Outline - BG1
- Sentiment Tickets - from The Crafty Pad Designs. You can get Fabulous Friend by clicking here. On the other ticket, I took the image into my word processing package. I then hid the original wording by covering it with a white text box and generated the Get Well Soon message myself. I hope Debbie doesn't mind that I tweaked one of her tickets!
Head on over to Lexi's Creations and see what my creative team-mates have created For a Friend and then come back and share your creation with us! You've got until Saturday 21st July 2012 to link your cards up.
