A Tribute to Hanna

EDITED - Hanna now has four sketches so it's one down three to go. SLOW DOWN Hanna - I can't keep up with you - you're teasing me again.

I made this card as a tribute to Hanna - my Swedish blogging friend. She designs sketches and posts them on her blog. I promised to try them, but this is the first one so far (two to go) and I have to say I followed it without any deviation (the sign of a really good sketch) and it was a sheer delight to work with.

Hanna is 13yrs old and has been chosen as a Design Team member for Magnolia which is an honour in itself and shows what a talented young lady she is. If you have never visited Hanna I urge you to do so - you will be astounded by her amazing creativity.

I used 'Tilda with Loll' as my image and coloured her with distress inks. The papers are from  kit by designs by Krista . There was a flower in this kit which I decided to use (never tried this before), I first had to alter the colour (turquoise) - I then printed out two large and two small for each flower, sprayed them with glimmer mist  (the cat as well - he always seems to appear when I'm glittering or glimmer misting lol). Once they had dried off a little I scrunched them up, waited for them to dry and assembled them . I'm pleased with the results and will certainly be doing this again.
After finished the card I hunted around and found that Magnolia Down Under wanted buttons - so a couple of little buttons anchoring the sentiment and a challenge card was 'born'.

I just hope Hanna feels I've done her sketch justice.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING ! I love the colours and paers that you've used and those flowers are scrummy.

I'm off to follow Hanna's blog. What a talented young lady she is.

Oh My, Heather, I don't know what to say...!
Of course I like it - "like" isn't the word - I totally love it!
It's so really beautiful, I just can't stop look at it!

I'm so very glad that you liked my sketch, your cards are all stunning and it's an honour to me that you've used the sketch.

Is it ok if I put the photo of your card together with the sketch in my sidebar???

Also a big thank you for your sweet words!

Have a nice day!
Hugs from Hanna

This is a stunning card. I love the colours - which was the original theme along with buttons. Great work. Thanks for joining us at MDUC.

Ann said...

Totally stunning Heather and I am going to pop over and check Hannah out.

Thanks for your lovely comments about my scruffy rabbits - I do love them, but the reason for the abundance is that I have been doing samples for Joanna Sheen so sadly I'm not ahead with my Christmas cards as Joanna has them all. Sheesh do you think she might give me them back in December?
