Some Exciting News

Hi everyone,

I hope your week is going well.

I have been absolutely dying to share this news with you,  I have been so excited, but I haven't been able to. Anyway I have been asked to be a DT for Dreamerland Crafts, you may remember that I shard a couple of cards with their images on recently. They will be setting up a challenge blog very soon.

So this is the first card I have officially made for them using this very cute image called 'Send Me Flowers', from their new spring collection which I have coloured with DI reinkers and a touch of Gansai Tambi paints.

I have sprinkled some white frantage around the outside of the image and painted some white gesso around the edges.

The two dies peeping out of the card are the newly released fantasy dies, and pearl twig (tucked underneath the flowers on the left hand side).

The butterfly is a Joy die and the trailing leaves tucked underneath the flowers on the right hand side is a Rosy Owl die.

The pearls and Ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage, Spun Sugar, Aged Mahogany, Pine Needles
Shoes: Spun Sugar, Aged Mahogany

Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Worn Lipstick
Hat: Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint
Trousers: Bundled Sage
Top: Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone
Grass: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters

The image above can be  bought from the following shops:


Well that's it from me today.

Thank you for popping in.
