Wow what a cracking challenge Nicola has set us this week! First of all here is what she said
I actually make cards without patterned papers quite often but I fancied doing something different for this one. I drew the background and coloured it in a water colour style with my Copics. I didn't have the time or the patience to cut Holly out so I scanned my background, added some black lines on Photoshop layered the digi image of Holly onto it then printed out. Once printed I coloured Holly with my Copics. The rest is self explanatory and very simple but simple is all I've had time for this week.
I want to see completely hand made cards, no bought backing papers or embellishments, the odd ribbon is fine though, but if you're gonna use backing papers I want you to have made it, if you use embellishments I want you to have made it,not just bought and stuck on and of course a Charmed Card and Crafts Download...................................................
Did you read that bit about the odd ribbon? Yep I'm afraid that's my fault! LOL I was so caught up in the handmade aspect I forgot about the embellishment specification! Sorry Nicola, mmmmwahhh.
I hope you like it. Pop over to Dottie's World to see what the rest of the team came up with and to join in!
