Cardmaking and crafts

My main craft love is cardmaking however there will be bits and bobs scattered around that are non-cardmaking, maybe a bit of baking, embroidery, knitting - whatever takes my fancy on the day

Try Something New and Anything goes Challenges

This is my big sister's birthday card.  It was her birthday on Monday so it's safe to post pictures of it now.

I used a digital candyfloss image from Mo's Digital Pencil that I hadn't used before and coloured the image using using my new spectrum noir alchol pens from Crafters Companion and my some of my old trusty promarkers.  Its the first time Ive used my spectrum noirs and I've goto admit I'm really impressed with them, I've found them much easier to blend than my promarkers.  I think I can feel a need for some more colours :)

The papers I've used are from a fizzy moon paper set and I used the same papers to make the flowers to make the easel stand up.  The border in the middle is using one of my Mariane dies.  Pat said she liked it and hopefully you will agree with her.

I'm entring this into the DP2 Challenge for Try Someting New and also Paper crafting Journey's anything goes challenge.
