Emma's Hat

Good morning all, hope you enjoyed your bank holiday at the weekend although I see the weather was true to form on Monday.  At least it was in the West Midlands, raining all afternoon but it was that nice straight rain so I had my window open in my craft room and thoroughly enjoyed my crafting afternoon listening to classic fm. 

We have a new challenge starting today at Creative-Ladybirds.

Our sponsor for this challenge is: -

I have used a lovely digi image from our sponsor called 'Emma's Hat'.

After printing out my image I coloured her in using a mixture of Copic sketch and Graphtec marker pens.

The dies I have used are Sue Wilson double pierced rectangles and ovals.

The stamps for the flowers and swirls are a lovely set from Honey Doo Crafts, embossed using cosmic shimmer detail white onto vellum for the flowers and WOW Sparkling Spruce onto heat resistant acetate for the swirls.

The embossing folder is an 8x8 from Tattered Lace and I have finished off using Nuvo pearl drops - bottle green.

If you want to enter our challenge and see more ideas from our design team follow the link HERE to our challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting today and I do hope to see you again soon.

Take care.
