More Projects:

I have wonderful projects to share with you from Andria over at: Iona-Rose Designs
She has done a lovely job putting these two project together for our Design Team at Scrappers Delight.

This is my second Design Team project for Scrappers Delight. Aprils Sponsors wer the wonderful Aifactory.
I took my inspiration for this card from the "Quote Garden" website with the following quote...

"Dancing is like dreaming with your feet"
I have distressed the edges of the papers and card to create a shabby chic feel and added pearls and roses. The mirry card I used to mount the image was purple, but I heat embossed the edges and it has blended the colour and created a holographic purple/pink feel.

I coloured the image with my promarkers and stickled part of her tutu and ribbons. I felt a sentiment on the front would be too much, so I've decorated the inside of the card and added it to the insert.
I've really enjoyed working with this image.


Card - White hammer, pink (papermill shop) and purple mirry card (create and craft).
Stamp - Aifactory (digi stamp).
Promarkers - pink carnation, blossom, dusky pink, satin, blush, cool grey1,2,3,4,5, black.
Extras - Roses (wild orchard), pearls (stash), Cotton candy stickles (Stash).
Design papers - My Minds Eye.

I am hoping my card covers the criteria for the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz Challenge #17 - Girly Card with flowers.
Quixotic Challenges # 23 - How Distressing (edges of papers and cards have been roughed up with scissors).

This is for our May DT projects for Scrappers Delight, using this adorable image from the Aifactory. I just looked at the image and thought it was crying out to be used on a "New Home" card.

I don't have any sentiment stamps that are suitable for new home cards, so I hand wrote this one, it reads "Home Tweet Home".

The image was colored with my trusty promarkers and I cut it out and attatched it to the card with foam pads, adding a swirly flourish of gems to the bottom corner.

I added an embossed panel using a paisley embossing folder, to represent bird feathers swirling in the breeze. I have also highlighted some of the edges of the lemon card with lemon glitter.


Card - Lemon, White (papermill shop).
Design Papers - Basic Grey.
Promarkers - Pastel pink, coral, blossom, pink carnation, vanilla, saffron, gold, sandstone, cinnamon, lime green, pear, cool grey 1, 4 & 5(Joanna Sheen).
