My old mucker Sheilakins has chosen the theme of 'Punch it out' over at Crafts & Me this week! She's also leaving us for a little while but will be coming back yay!
For this I used a digi by Sara Burrier called Natalie and she's available at Crafts & Me here.
I kept this one very plain with no DP's and just used my martha punch on the edge and used a lot of tiny details to make up for the lack of dp's and fussy stuff! If you look closely there are the teeniest gems as an earring, these are nail art gems you can get in a set at poundland and they are absolutely tiny! There are gems on the mask, flowers and butterflies and a gem brad. The punched butterflies are 3 punches with a dark blue one at the bottom then 3d' with one punched from a DP with a tiny one on top so 3 layers.
The actual digi comes with a plain dress below the loops so I added in some pleats with promarkers and jazzed the loops up with a sparkly sakura stardust pen. Had a lot of fun colouring this one as I love doing skin tone and she's plenty of that! (Promarker list at foot of page)
The big ribbon flower is easy to make; Cut a circle of card, add glue dots then cut 8 strips of ribbon long enough to be folded over. Stick one end of the robbon down, make a loop then secure other end. Repeat to make a cross shape and add more glue dots then do the x shape to get all 8 strips on. Add something interesting to the centre and thats it! If you use a button as the centre you'll hit several challenges as buttons and bows comes up quite a lot ;)
