Yeah, time for another fantastic recipe challenge at Craft 4 Eternity. This week, as usual, we want you to use Michele's great sketch, but the added ingredients are to use the colours black & purple & to incorporate some kind of embossing into your layout. Don't forget there is also another fab, cardmaking goody bag, kindly provided by Michele, up for grabs too!
I have to confess, my layout did not quite go to plan. I could not get a neat scalloped effect at the corners, so I just did the top & bottom, rather than all 4 sides. Rather stupidly, I also coloured my image on a piece of paper that was too small to cut into a circle, hence the oval shape instead! You'll have to pop over to the C4E blog to see what I am talking about & while you are there check out the fabulous work of my DT colleagues. Michele has also put together a totally yummy card/scrapbooking kit for October in her store, it is so lush! See it here.
Not much to say about my image. As you can probably tell, I've been playing with my Promarkers again! I added glaze to her wand & used a glitter pen in an attempt to give it a magical fairy sparkle. You can't really see that in the photos though. I think this fairy Manga is so versatile. It's from the Christmas set at Sugar Nellie, but as you can see, it does not have to be Xmassy. Why though, I'm not using every opportunity at this stage to make Xmas cards, is beyond me, LOL!
Well I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Thanks so much for visiting.
