GD at My Besties Friendship Challenge Blog


Hi there!


Today I am a Guest Designer over at My Besties Friendship challenge blog. My “Girl with a hat”, that I entered into the September challenge, won me this GD s pot.
For my GD project I’ve used Sherri Ann Baldy IMG310. You can find it by clicking the image title.

This is a really cute image from Sherri Ann Baldy. This girl is so adorable and I loved colouring her. The transparent skirt was a challenge, but I’m quite happy with the result. If you know of a little girl dancing, I’m sure she’d love to get a card with this image.

I had much fun colouring her, and I used the following Copic markers for the project:

Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Eyes: B28, B24 and B12
Hair: E15, E13 and Y21
Skirt: RV63 and RV10
Bows and shoes: RV55, RV63 and RV10
Dots on blouse: RV55
Blouse and bow on her arm: YG03 and YG00
Rose: R27 and R10
Leaves: YG63 and YG03

What I always find difficult is to put the image on a card. Do I put too little or too much embellishment on? It’s always my fear that my cards are too simple, because I like that there’s not too much on to take the attention away from the image itself. And I’m not too good to layering, I think, but I hope I pulled it off this time.

As background I’ve used a pink die cut from a Marianne die as well as light green and dark green card stock. I have used two different kinds of pink flowers – I’ve been told by a friend that I should always put them on in uneven numbers – so there’s one big and two small flowers on opposite corners of the card. To balance them, I’ve put one big and two smaller pearls on the other opposite corners.

I hope you like my card. Feel free to leave a message to let me know. Please join my blog if you would like to see my projects on a regular basis.

Be Happy Crafting!

I will put her into the following challenges:
