I set the challenge this time at Quirky Crafts, and I want to see projects featuring girls, or for girls and only using two main colours. You can use additional colours on your digital stamp or stamped image if you use one.
I used Cute Face 1 from Jiggery Makery who is a brand new sponsor to Quirky and has lots of girly images for sale in the Etsy store.
I haven't been near my craft stash or desk for weeks due to my husband being ill - I just couldn't get creative when I felt so sad. So I thought I would try and make myself go there today and start with the simplest image to colour. Even so this has taken a few hours to complete!
I coloured the face with Promarkers then die cut it with a Spellbinders card maker rectangle, adhered it to the yellow patterned paper, which is by DCWV from a spotty Mat Stack and was already cut in the shape you see, then added orange and yellow flowers to her head covering the edges of the rectangle. When I was looking at flowers for this project the jar with these was my inspiration to go for orange and yellow as my two colours, not my normal colour scheme! Maybe I need a little sunshine in my life right now!
The flowers, spotty bow and tiny buttons and the patterned paper at the back are all from Papermania Capsule collection. I also added some orange gems to the flowers on her head and as earrings.
Spotty brads and polka dot chiffon ribbon complete the look, and finally a sentiment die cut with a Tonic die, and mounted on a shape cut with a Spellbinders die and then glittered with Stickles.
We have two more wonderful sponsors at Quirky, and those are Sweet Pea Stamps and Digital Delights and I hope to make some examples by them soon.
