 44, Dawn L.
Congratulations Dawn!
Right, our challenge for this week is the ever popular
 And as always our very generous sponsers are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering you a prize of $20. to spend on their website

but this is providing you have used one of their images or products on your card, but even if you havent they will still give you three images of your own choice.
 Well I can't wait to see what amazing creations you all
come up with this week.
Don't forget to drop by the Challenge Blog and check out
the Wonderful creations the Girls on the DT have
made to give you some awesome inspiration.

Now for my card I have used the Beautiful "A. Mucha Influence - Spring"
I saw this image when she was released, and have been wanting to make
a card with her! She is coloured with Copics. I used my YG11, & YG13 and
blender pen on her dress. E41,E42, E43 on her hair and branch.
Skin tones i used E50 & E51 & R20.
The papers I used are from Pion Design. I have loved these
from when I first saw them, and when I found out Mandy from
"Scrappy Go Lucky" was going to the Paperarts Show in Brisbane,
and she had just got them in....I kinda asked (well begged really!!)LOL
If she could take the to the show...WooooHoooo!!
They are just to die for! 
Ok now for the bit of woopsies...Errr i tried to make roses again...
They are suppose to be
I think i need Anita to give me more lessons.
I used my Cheery Lynn small, medium and large roses for the roses, but i 
just couldnt get the center to go right!
And do you like my new Border die! OMG it is gorgeous. It is
the "Tiffany Border". I liked it when i saw Donnas Tutorial with it, but 
when i got it i was a bit doubtful...UNTIL I cut it out. OMG
It is so beautiful! Oh and i just love the new Mini flourish.
It is just the perfect size for cards!!
(am i rambling...I think i am!! rofl)
And i am working on a tag to go in behind the image, when
i finish it i will post a new photo!
Ok thanks for dropping by
I hope you all have a great day

  3. Hi Tracey,
    it was lovely to meet you at the Brisbane show and well done on getting a card made so quickly with the pretty Pion Papers. It looks gorgeous! I love the digi stamp and will definitely be checking those out win I get back to Perth.

    The copic colours you have chosen compliment the papers perfectly. As for the flowers, they look good as they are. One way to make them look more rose like is to spray them with a little glimmer mist, pearl mist or even water. Then scrunch them up and push all the petals upwards towards the centre. Let them dry like that. Use a heat tool if in a hurry. They will then be more closed, like the centre of a rose.

  4. Tracey, your sweet harpist image looks lovely on this softly colored card. So glad to see your entry at the Crafts and Me Stamps' digi team's Pearls and Roses challenge. Hugz, ~ Rose
