GUEST DESIGNER Creative Craft Cottage

{Guest Designing - Creative Craft Cottage}

It is such an honour to have been invited by the lovely Claudia to take part as a guest designer for Creative Craft Cottage on 21 June 2016. The theme is 'Layer it Up' Please hop over and have a look at the talented design team's creations.

I received this beautiful image from Faery Ink to play with.  I popped the image onto a pre-coloured background and also digitally recoulored the image.  The sentiment are from Paulette from CREATE WITH TLC and has been coloured with dry chalks.  
The folded flower embellishments have been created with 4x4cm squares of which the corners were rounded first and then cut and folded. The crochet flowers created by a friend for me has been coloured with chalk inks.  The brads, buttons and designer papers (from Celebr8) are from my stash.  The flourishes has been stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps and fussy cut.

  36. How beautiful, Desiree! I love how you have the couple stand out in white, surrounded by the color of their friends and family. It's almost like the "spotlight" technique, but for an entire card, rather than just an image. Wonderful design!

    Thank-you for joining us at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge "Anything Goes". Please check back to see if you are a winner!
