Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Crafty Boots - Flowers

Good morning!

Well today our new challenge launches over at the Crafty Boots Challenge blog and the theme this time is FLOWERS as chosen by the lovely Kerry.

For my DT project I chose to make a card using the very gorgeous Some Odd Girl stamp available to buy from Crafty Boots shop Fairy Wishes - 

As you can see I kept the background plain using some lovely Kraft graph type paper.

I coloured Fairy Wishes using bold strong colours in blues and pinks using Copics. I felt that she was perfect for the theme with her flowers in her hair but to be fair I would probably make her fit for any theme as she is just so fab to colour!

The flowers are from my ever growing stamp collection and they were coloured to match and stuck on slightly raised. 

Finally I added a dash of sparkle to the centres and also to the fairies wings and hair.

Well I'd love it if you would pop over and join in with our challenge, follow along and see what my fellow DT ladies have been making!

Take care Zo xx

Hi Zo!

I adore this card - such a cute image and the Kraft graph paper/card is fabulous! Think you so much for your lovely comment today - the reason I 'mix it up' is 'cos I just can't settle on one style or technique for long. Always something new to try out - must be my butterfly brain :(

Take care hun, lovely to see you hopping in now and then.

Big hugs, Di xx
