The 3 element of this card Orange, I coloured the hat Orange, the leaves are on the vine coming through the fence and dots I have used twice, once on the paper piecing top & handbag and of course on the background, this paper is from the My Minds Eye Spots and Dots paper pad!!
The image is a La La Land digi stamp Travel Marci, she has been paper pieced, Yes you can paper piece with a digi image!!
I have made 2 cards for this the first one is SUPER simple but effective
I have used 2 embossing folders on this card the base was embossed with a Couture creations folder called Drifting Endless and the second one I embossed the butterflies with is a Cuttlebug folder D'Vine Swirl. The flower border punch is a Martha Stewart punch.
For this card I have used a Digi stamps from Whimsie Doodles this image was a free image that is juct so perfect for the Crafty Friends stamp set!! She is called Crafty Lizzy and I have coloured her using water coloured pencils
The background is made from scrap strips, the scalloped circle and circle are Mpress dies. The paper is Kaisercraft Candy Lane Collection paper pad
This weeks challenge at Hiding In My Craft Room is Limited Layers, That is 2 layers only!!! This was a hard one for me as I love to layer up my cards. I decided that the best idea is to try a guys card for this theme as they prefer card with limited fuss!!
This card came together so quickly when I worked out what I was doing. The hot air balloons are from Hampton Art, and the background paper is from My Minds Eye spots and dots.
