Sooooooo...... after a year and a half break from serious DT work I have decided that with only my youngest at home full time it might be time to throw my hat in the ring for a few DT calls. Although in saying that I am only going to try out for companies I love and that totally inspire me. One of those companies is Tiddly Inks, I have always loved Christy's illustrations and I thought I might as well have a go since the Tiddly Inks team are looking for a few new designers.
I have made a card using Happy Bee Day, she is so sweet and when you purchase her you get some very cool extras :)
I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers on Watercolour paper. If you follow my blog you will know that I am just switching to these markers, due to cost and availability, from copics. I noticed today that with the SN markers on watercolour paper you can't oversaturate like you can with copics. I was having trouble with the blending on the face so I went over a few times to get a better blend BUT the paper started to pill, just a warning for those of you out there starting out with these like me :) I managed to fix it without too much drama but the paper is definitely rough in that area. I used my FAVOURITE MME paper, Sweetest Thing Tangerine. I actually finished the 6x6 pad, BUT luckily I still have another 3 phew ;)
Here is a close up of the image....
I printed my sentiment in word and punched out with some oval punches. I finished off the card with some twine, liquid pearls and heart confetti punch outs.
I am so in love with this card and know exactly who i am going to send it off to.
Thanks loads for visiting and happy scrapping ( or cardmaking lol )
