DT call over at The East Wind

Hello, My name is Rachel, and I am 26.. I have been crafting for slightly under a year but am completely passionate about what I do, and I love colouring images the most!
I would like to show you the card I made today for you using this months freebie, which is absolutely gorgeous! I spent a while deciding what would do it justice, and came up with this scrap booking inspired 8x8 Card

I used some 12x12 papers from my stash, and also half of a spotty 6x6 paper from dovecraft , and the purple cardstock is Bazzill basics, textured cardstock. I also used tattered lace die cut corners, a marianne butterfly (doubled) ,a  papermania button, and some inspirational word strips from a scrapbooking bundle I was sent.
The beautiful image is coloured with my promarkers , and the eyes have a layer of glossy accents on them to really make them shine!
I have layered up bigtime on this card, and being brutally honest I have not loved a card I have made so much in a fair while!

I also design for Just for Fun Challenge Blog , Left of Center ChallengesSamaflora Flowers, and PunkYouGirl challenge blog

here are a couple of other examples of work for these blogs (although unfortunately, I cannot show anything for PunkYouGirl yet, as my first Piece for them has not gone live :(

                                               This Piece was for the Just for Fun Blog, using Saturated Canary's 'Butterflies'  (you may notice an offcut of this paper in the piece I just made for you)
from this blog post :Just for Fun midway reminder

This Piece was for L.O.C using a Stamping Chef image called 'Bite me'
from this blog post :L.O.C -Die cuts

                         and Finally, a Mother's day card using Samaflora flowers (which has not been blogged but went straight on the Samaflora Facebook page)

If you do feel like having a nose around my Blog, I have more info about myself on the 'about me' page (although I HATE talking about myself!)

  1. Rachel this card is wonderful. The image is lovely and with the hair colour, looks a little bit hippyish. I think the scrappy collage background works really well with the feel of the image.

    Will keep my fingers crossed for you
