When friends meet... My Papertake Weekly Challenge entry
This week at Papertake we have the following sketch to follow, and the Design Team, including wonderfully talented Katharina herself( who designed this sketch), gave us lovely projects to inspire us. The WoJ stamp being given to the winner makes you want to try your best.. so let's see!!
Yesterday I was really tired, and having come back from the pool with the kids, and made the loads of clothes etc.. I thought I was ready for a quick blog hop, and off to bed! But when I start with papers.. and ribbons.. and colouring.. then I forget about being tired! I loved working with this image, again it's a swap image I received from Maxine. The fact that it's not an image you usually use, it's more fun still! :)
Also purple is my favourite colour.. and the light pastels in this DP is very versatile in itself.The picture here is just not right.. the colours in real life are lovely. Scan colours are boring!
I paper pierced both the image and the sentiment for more effect. Image is coloured with water- colours, then added some depth with colour picked from shimmery gel pens, and tried to add some glaze with the pen.. but it decided it wanted a day off! Cake is shaded to give an impression of being very chocolatey :)
List of stash I used is not so specific, as DP and image have come from swap and BRAK, white light blue and purple cardstock bits from stash fibres I recently bought from the Pound Shop Papermania brads White Ribbon when friends meet.. sentiment is computer generated Happy Birthday sentiment is hand- doodled.
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
