Alicia and Aliana: Crafts and Me DT!!

19:00:00

Hi everyone! I have more exciting news today...I am so happy to announce that I am the newest design team member over at Crafts and Me!! WOOHOO! Have you checked out their images yet? If you haven't you are seriously missing out! They have beautiful images...lots of fairies too which I LOVE! They also have a neat weekly challenge blog with fab giveaways and you can use any image you like for the challenges!


There is also a fantastic giveaway this week where you can win the complete next release set of rubber stamps from one of their artists!! Head over here for details.


For my card this week I have used the brand new digi Alicia and Aliana. How amazing is this! But let me tell you it was a little mission to colour but so worth it in the end :) This is my first time colouring scenery so please be gentle :)






 I have used some gorgeous Kaisercraft paper, some cheesecloth, some Wild Orchid flowers and some Make it Crafty flourish chippies. This was a hard card to do up as I didn't want to take away from the image. I coloured the image with copic and here are the colours that I used:


Skin: E50, E00, E53, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress: R81, R85
Dragon: G000, G00, BG13, BG34
Grass: G82, G85, YG03, E43
Cliffs: E41, E35, E37, E15, E21, 0
Water: BG000, BG01, 0




Phew! My copic pile was massive for this one! The image turned out really nice and bright though I think if I was colouring it again I would try and tone it down a little. Anyway, hope you all like it! :D


Challenges I am entering with this card:


4 Crafty Chicks - Material (I have used Cheesecloth :)
Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards - Lace and Pearls
Crafty Catz - Animals
Crafty Ribbons - Things with Wings
Cute Card Thursday - Spring Flowers
Paper Play Challenges - Things with Wings
Just Inspirational - Inspiration Picture (I have used the colours and was inspired by the butterfly wings :)




Also, don't forget to pop back later this week as I have some more exciting news and a little suprise for you all!
