Hi Susan here.
I have been very proud this week to be the Guest Designer at Lexi's Creations.
The challenge started today and is sponsored by Fairy Dust Craft, and the brilliant theme is paper piecing!! Full details can be found on the challenge blog, please go over and join in the fun with us all, the challenge closes on Sunday 8th August and the winner is announced on Monday 9th August. Lexi's Creations is all about the love of crafting and this is evident in the cards that are created by her wonderful DT team!!
Now to my card.. I used a great sketch from Paperplay even though I couldn't join in the challenge!!
My backing papers are from a CD rom of Joanna Sheen's called Eastern Treasures. Fabulous backing papers on this CD I love using them. I have distressed all the edges and all the patterned papers have been layered onto black for definition.
This is the beautiful digi image I was lucky to use this week, it is available from HERE. Her name is Okichi. I loved using this stamp with the technique of paper piecing.
I used Pro-Markers to colour the rest of the image in and then I inked the background before distressing the edges of the topper and layering it on red card.
This is one of the gorgeous tassels from Joanna Sheen.... The vintage brads are from our stash.
These little metal charms were from a gift I received one Christmas and saved just in case they could be used on something.... The ribbon as usual came from our local market.
This fan is one of the many toppers from the CD rom. I cut it out from the topper and glued it in place on my card, by the way the main backing paper is the muted picture of this fan!! Clever girl Joanna Sheen!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges...
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
