Hi everyone! Today I have a card to share with you all showcasing the gorgeous Ardella from Make it Crafty. How amazing is she?! If you haven't checked out their line of products, you need to head over there now and take a peek! The lovely Zoe even made sure I received my birthday pressies on time this week :)
I teamed Ardella with my new favourite papers...Kaisercraft These Days. So lush and vintage! I have also added some beautiful borders using my Martha Stewart Swirling Lace punch, some flowers from Wild Orchid and Prima, and some of the fabby chipboard from Make it Crafty. I know I waffled on about this earlier in the week but it does add a really nice touch and is so versatile! I inked my flourish up with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo, and used some loose glitter powder on the butterfly and corner embellishment.
I coloured up Ardella using copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:
Skin: E00, E50, E53, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress: YR000, YR02, YR20, YR61
Wings: YR000, YR02
3. What do you enjoy most about crafting? I love how crafting is a great way to explore my creative side; I enjoy experimenting and playing with new ideas, and I always find it very rewarding to see the finished product. I also love the variety of products that are available and the endless ways to use them. It is also great that the crafting community is so close knit and we have the opportunity to view and be inspired by such lovely creations on everyone's blogs!
4. What are your favourite products at Make it Crafty? I am in LOVE with the chipboard products. Can't stop using these! I have a bunch of new cards to put up with them coming too :) And I cant' go past the fairy images....these are just beyond amazing!
5. Why would you like to be on the Make it Crafty team? Apart from already having and loving a HEAP of the chipboard and digis, I think that Make it Crafty would be a good fit for me as I am always inspired by the design team's creations and love participating in the challenges. I really enjoy trying new techniques and I would have a heap of fun using all of the products on offer!
Here are a few of my favourite projects too:
I had a lot of fun colouring this up! Everything just seems to match so well and I had a bit of fun playing with new techniques of using my dies as stencils and inking up the background.
Love the tones in this card...it feels so whimsical and fun :) Plus I just ADORE this image - she was a heap of fun to colour up!
This was a fun card too. I love the vintage feel of the card and love the image - it is so versatile and can be used for anything!
I love how all of the embellishments have come together in this card and the tones. A lot of fun to colour up! :)
