Thrilled and Excited

I certainly was, thrilled and excited when I was contacted to be told my application to join the DT at Crafty Carmaker's was successful.This week is the first time that the Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge Blog and the
Crafty Cardmaker's Spotlight Challenges Blog have become two blogs. Please pop over to either to find out a lot more interesting information.This is my first D.T.offering of Crafty Cardmaker's, which is for the Spotlight Challenge of -- Design your own paper. (DP) I made my background design paper to blend with my main stamped image. I created the DP using an A4 sheet of white card, using TH Distress inks and a piece of Cut & Dry foam I added random splodges of colour to cover the card, using Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw Bundled Sage, Antique Linen and Weathered Wood. I then randomly stamped all over the A4 sheet with Flora and
Fauna stamps. The first 3 of the above mentioned inks were used to colour the main image where I used a brush to apply the inks, before I stamped with the Sanctuary stamp from the Paperartsy set HP1006. I then added a piece of DP to a yellow card, stamped the dragonfly from a Debbie Moore set Butterflies and Dragonflies coloured with above colours, added small jewels to the card.
