Love To Paint

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, followers and Visitors

Welcome to today's  challenge #  78 
( This will be our last one this year) over at 

 and the theme is


Our sponsors for this challenge are :-

A Day For Daisies

Prize $12 Gift Certificate

Prize 3 Digi Stamps 

Prize 7 Digi images of winners choice

My card has been made using the image Finger Paint from
A Day For Daisies and if you would like to purchase, then
please click on the link HERE.

1. Using a 7 x 7 card I first matted it with kraft card.
Next layer is paper from my stash and I  then
inked around the edges.

2. Cut another square of kraft card and to this
I have adhered a piece of marble paper from
Craftwork cards paper pack Marble. I die
   cut it using Spellbinder Grand Scalloped Squares.
Mounted onto card with foam tape. Again inked
around the edges

3. Took a circle die and again the marble paper
and die cut it. Attached this to a circle of kraft
card and again adhered to card. Same as the
other die, inked the edges.

4. The image was printed onto water colour card
and I coloured it using Derwent Inktense Pencils
( Only the second time of using but I have done 
my best). This was then die cut with a circular
die mounted onto a circular kraft card. I then
used distress ink to cover the frame as I did
not want to leave it white.

To complete I have added Nuvo Jewel Drops
(these are awesome) around the image and
in the top and bottom left hand corner.

All that remains is for me to wish you 


See you again in  2017 ( I hope)

Until Next Time
Take Care and Happy Crafting

  12. Oh dear, this little lady has got herself in a bit of a mess...not like me at all when I'm crafting as I am very untidy but hate to be messy...can't stand ink/paint/glitter all over my hands - lol!
    The pretty layering with different shapes of DP onto the scalloped base looks really lovely and the muted colours really suit the image, giving it a fab vintage/retro feel :-)
    Big hugs, Kat xx
