Crafty Calendar GDT

I was thrilled to bits when Georgia asked me to be Guest Designer at Crafty Calender this month and what a fabulous theme it is - The Great Outdoors. The DT's have come up with some amazing creations - just check them out.



I just loved doing this card - once I'd got my masking in the right order that is - using two images I don't have a problem - three and I always manage to get one the wrong way round. Poor Edwin was impaled on the fence at one point - I quickly rescued him and he's fortunately no worse for wear.


I coloured the images with distress inks and used Copics for the background shading fo a change - I usually do it the other way round. The background and Edwin are both Magnolia of course and the fence is WOJ.
The patterned bp is from my 'bit box' (I have some rather large pieces in my bit box) and the ribbon is pure silk tie-died and very touchy-feely. I used a MS punch for the large butterfly, the smaller one is a stamp (origin unknown) which I cut out and the pearls are Basic Grey.



 I'm going to enter this one into Just Magnolia's special monthly challenge which is 'It takes Two'

Right, back to painting radiators, much rather be painting images!!

Oh isn't this gorgeous! I haven't got my head around masking so I'm not sure how badly Edwin suffered here, but he's looking pretty well! I love the pp.
