Guest Designer at Quirky Crafts

Hi Crafters,

I was lucky enough to win a recent challenge at the Quirky Crafts challenge blog and I was asked to join in this week as Guest Designer - thank you Cazzy.

The challenge theme this fortnight is 'For The Quirky Girls' and as an added challenge you must only use two colours apart from skin and hair colour.

I hope I've met the requirements with this red and green card although I have some white in there too.

Meet 'Missy' she is a fabulous digital image from Jiggery Makery on Etsy.
She is coloured with my Letraset Pro/flexmarkers and I have added a sprinkling of glitter strands to the edges of her dress and hat.

I've used core'dinations card stock with a Sue Wilson embossing folder - Swirling Holly and a Cuttlebug folder for the dotty snow background.

My sentiments are Britannia Christmas Word Dies and Clearly Besotted 'Husband' word stamp and die from the 'My Hero' sets.

...and lastly a Tonic 'Festive Gift' die which I have backed with coloured card.

She's a bit saucy isn't she? but I love her.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Fab & Funky - #276 Sassy Ladies
Crafty Catz - #296 Embossing
Creative Fingers - #95 ATG
Not Just Cards - #25 ATG
Country View Crafts - Add Some Texture
The Ribbon Girl - Everything Goes with an Image
Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends - #19 ATG

Come and join in the fun with us, we'd love to see your cards featuring 'girls' this time.
There are three fabulous sponsors ...  

...each giving away super prizes.

Bye for now

She looks fabulous, lovely shading and a fun card. White never counts as a colour does it, it would be hard to cut it out of everything so I'm sure it fits. Grats on your guest spot I'm sure they were thrilled to have you :) xx
