DT call card

I've created this card for Bizzy Becs Creatalicious challenges DT call, La La land DT call, Copic Colour Challenges GDT call plus their challenge 24 this week :)

I shall start with Bizzy Becs Creatalicious challenge which is to create an item using their sketch below.


La La land is a new stamp company opening its doors on 12th August. You can find them here. Not sure anybody has seen their stamp range yet but hey with a name like la la land its bound to be fun!



Next up is Copic colour challenges GDT call plus their challenge 24 this week which is to use the colours BG02, RV02 & YG03 so I'd best show my card eh!



Background paper is by K&Co (sparkly sweet stack) Thought the green was a bit too plain so I cut out part of one of the other sheets which I thought too loud so together I was happy :) Couldnt for the life of me find the *right* paper to use as matting behind the main image so I made my own with adirondack shell pink and distress ink in shabby shutters overstamped with a leaf design using versamagic aloe vera.

Main image is a digital stamp by Victoria Case called Tara. I printed extra flowers out to use too. Also hiding amongst the flowers is Willy the worm also from VC stamps.

They are coloured with copics using RV02, RV21 & RV06 for the dress and flowers; B12 & B93 for the blue bits; V12 & V04 for the other flowers; YG03, YG63 and G07 for the leaves and green bits :D Hair is E51 & E33; Face is E00, E51, E21 & E02 for the cheeks.

I distressed the matting and the main image with a pair of scissors then rubbed adirondack shell pink using a piece of cut n dry foam into the image and around the edge.

Swirly bits are naked chipboard by maya road coloured with versamagic aloe vera and then added 3 blue jewel brads. Highlights and glitter wings are sakura stardust clear and souffle white.
