The challenge over at colour create is to use red, chocolate and cream on your card. I don't have many backing papers in this colour so I created my own using a punch and some plain coloured papers and cardstock and some gems. I used the only gorjuss girl from set two ,who I hadn't inked up last week. I used copics and sakura stardust to colour in the image and water pencils to create the shadow behind her. I used some ribbon which is the optional extra for the challenge behind my sentiment and made a little bow to sit at the bottom of my framed image. My photography has let me down here but I struggled to get a good photo today. I always do with shimmery cards.
I made another card but I am not too sure I want to show it as it is just not quite there for me. My mojo is hiding and I can't seem to find it. I have a friend who is a songwriter and singer and he suggested I look under the sofa as that is where his often is. I looked but I don't think it is there. I am taking it easy with cards this month as I have a couple of other projects under way more news on that soon!
We have had a great day we went shopping in Lewisham (hi Joey) to spend the kids birthday vouchers and then had a picnic in Greenwich park. We went into the maritime museum and then came home. We are all coughing.... eek swine flu.... alert!!!!
