I have been eager to share this news with you, however I have had to keep it under my hat for a while..... I was asked in December, to be a guest Designer for the brilliant 'Left Of Centre' Challenge Blog, to which I said YES YES YES straight away!
I then had the best start ever to a new year and was asked to join the Left Of Centre Challenge Blog Design Team as a permanent member....wooohoooo and happy new year!!!!!
The challenge is the First challenge on 2014 which is:
Challenge 22: Sponsored by Delicious Doodles - NEW BEGUINNINGS
Here is what I made
I was given the most gorgeous Delicious Doodles Image to work with and coloured this with my Water Colour Pencils. The image was brilliant to colour as you could make it as basic or intricate as you desire.
I found as many different shaded/patterned purple papers and matched them up with the colouring in the image.
I added some black lace tape as well as actual purple lace, with a ribbon runner.
Finished off with a lovely sentiment and lots of different shaped and colour flat backed gems.
This card was so far out of my comfort zone as I thought it has to be very 'alternative', however I think I found a level that I was comfortable with.
Yes I am known for making cute/girly/colourful cards, but that isn't all I am about. I am looking forward to exploring this side of my crafting, and seeing where I can take it.
I hope this make has inspired you to pop over and see my new fellow Design Teams projects, and join in with the challenge. Please don't think that you have to be a specific type of crafter to join this challenge....you don't!
Thank you for your visits and your wonderful words.
