Digi Bells - Em Jay

Hi everyone,
I hope you have all had a good week.

Phil and I had a fab time in Jersey, although we were sadly let down by the weather. The day we landed it was pure blue skies and the temperature was just right  to go out and about exploring, but then it went downhill from there. It rained non stop for several days, until we arrived at the airport to fly home when the sun decided to show it's face again. We made the best of it, but there are only so many times you can get get soaked before feeling a bit fed up.  Now I am preparing to go off on my travels again this weekend to stay with my parents in Lincolnshire and meet up with a crafty friend in Whitby. Mum and I will be out and about doing some crafty shopping whilst I am there, what more can a girl ask for, maybe just a bit of sunshine?

Anyway on with the task in hand, I am super excited to share with you that I have been asked to be a GDT for the next 3 months for the Digi Bells.

This is my first card for them using the very cute Em Jay, isn't she sweet? She can be purchased here.

I have coloured her using Di reinkers and added a little white frantage around the outside of the image.

The papers are by Maja from the Summer Basic collection.

The heart and circle dies have been cut twice, once in cream card and once in the paper and then I painted some gesso around the outside of the paper.

In the centre of the butterfly I have stuck a Tim Holtz pen knib and added some gesso to it for a different effect. 

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress and Rose Braclet: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar
Shoes: Gathered twigs
Flowers and Bracelet: Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters

Well that's it from me, I will be taking a break from blogging whilst I am away.

Thank you for taking the time to pop in.
