Reader Denny + Karber Guest Designer!

Hi everyone! Guess what? The lovely Berenice from Karber contacted me this week about being their April guest designer! :D woohoo! Have you checked out their digi stamps yet? They are super duper cute and lots of fun to colour up. There is even a fun challenge blog where you can win some stamps!


For my card today I have used the stunning Reader Denny. I love her hair and her big pouty lips hehe. I teamed her with my new obsession - beautiful digi papers by Michele R for Whimsy. Aren't they amazing? I love how these come in a pack of 4x 6x6s so it takes all of the guesswork out of choosing papers!


I made some distressed seam binding using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Victorian Velvet and bunching it up to get it all crinkly. I added some wild orchid flowers, a big prima flower and button, and a chipboard corner from Make it Crafty. The beautiful flourish is one of my new cheery lynn dies! I am definitely loving my new die cutter :D



I coloured Denny up using Copics. Here are the colours that I used:
Skin: E50, E53, E11, E00, R11
Hair: E11, E13, E15
Jacket: E31, E31, E37
Trousers: BG01, BG05, BG09
Scarf/Book: R11, R20, R22



Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Fashionista Challenge - Anything Goes For Girls 
My Time Made Easy - Colour Challenge (Pink, Celery, Blue)
CR8FN - Colour Challenge (Pink, Peach, Light Blue)
