Firstly, apologies! My post is a bit late this month - brain like a sieve!
As you probably already know, the challenge this month is Spring Is In The Air (or baby cards), and Crissy has the most adorable new spring-themed images available as digis through Whimsy Stamps. I've used two of the new images on my card today - MEADOW BACKGROUND and LILLY FILLY. Love how the images merge together and I had SO much fun colouring them in.
I used Crissy's card as a reference when I was considering how to colour Lilly Filly. I love Crissy's colouring, and studying her coloured images has been a big help over the past couple of years in developing my own skills! I also followed Annika's sky tutorial to create the sky.
I coloured the image with Copics. Papers are Echo Park Springtime 12x12. I coloured the ribbon using a Copic marker to match my coloured image and tied the bow with the Bow-Easy template. The gorgeous chipboard corners and butterfly are from the Make It Crafty Fine Swirls lasercut chipboard pack, and I painted them with Twinkling H20s.
OVER TO YOU! If you haven't joined in the challenge yet, I hope you will! All the challenge rules are over in the sidebar, and you can link up your project using Inlinkz on Sarah's post from earlier in the month.
Now it's your turn to show us your Spring/Baby cards! There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by Random.org at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.
