About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

I spent a day chilling today and after initially struggling with the design of this card a little expertise help from Rebekah at Berrylicious was greatly appreciated.

The image is called Troublemaker and she's from Kenny Kiernan.  To colour her in I used Spectrum Noir Pens from the Pastel set which I bought from JGD Crafts, Sutton-in-Ashfield. The colours are really subtle but I hope, effective.
The background paper was a pale turquoise spotty patterned paper I had in my stock from when I worked for Creative Memories (scrapbooking). I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 29 for the pink layers and used a linen effect card which I also bought from Janet at JGD Crafts. I used a small round doily so that the image stood out clearly. On the corners of the pink rectangle I used Pink Candi from Craftwork Cards out of the Chocolate & Marshmallow pack shown in the close-up below.

For the embellies I used a number of fabric hearts that I had in stock which I believe have picked up the colors used throughout. Really quite happy with this.

I will be entering her into the Divas by Design Challenge "Put on Some Pink".
Thanks for calling by
