Flowers over at The Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! It's time for a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter today. I missed out on the last challenge so I feel more than ready for this one. It's hard when you body decides that you can't do what you really want to do. But for this challenge have I had plenty of time to finish of and I didn't have that much pain during the weekend the week before. So a card got done. You might want to know our theme this week? We are going for the theme of flowers. Nice and easy isn't?

For this card have I use the lovely image called Enchanting Butterflies. I have used my winsor/Newton former known as Letraset. I printed the image with my Epson 940 photo printer. It's a good printer as long as you use the original inks in it. It can't be too much alcohol in the ink when you colour with markers that has alcohol in them. They will smudge. Ok, got side tracked a bit here.

Back to the card, it's coloured with my markers as I said and I paired the image up with some designer papers from LOTV/NitWit collections. Up and away I think the pad is called. I tried to go with lots of light colours in pastels. Looks really nice and fresh if you ask me. I used a few of all the flowers that I have laying around in my stash. This time I went for the cherry blossoms. Nice and pastel coloured. I did use a few leafs that I painted with a white acrylic paint. And after a few minutes when it had dried for a little while did I spray them with a spring green mist from H.S. I think the colour is called sea foam or something like that. Doing this made them look a bit more pasellish. And the shines lovely. :)

I am happy about this card. Love how it turned out and the colours are really pretty. Well it's done now and my crafting goes on. At least that what I am hoping for as I have quite a lot of pain my my finger joints at the moment. I hope that you will come and join us over at the Shelter this week and have fun with our challenge. It's nice and easy as you only have to add some flowers to your creation. I really hope to see you there.

As always do we have a gift voucher worth $30 if you play with our brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance to win three digis of your choise. Really nice isn't it? It would be wonderful if you would play with any of our great images and they are great to colour and if you don't have any time to colour you can always use the pre coloured image. Nice and easy!

Take good car of yourself and please do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
