I'm super excited to be Guest Designing for Arty Divas today! 

I took some time to consider what I enjoy most about this art we love, called card-making.  I whittled it down to 3 main aspects: A light 'shabby-chic' look; colouring, and flowers as embellishments.  

I've used an image from Sweet Escape Digis, called Winter Girl, and coloured her with markers, then cut her out with a blade.  I decided to oversize her on the card, to be able to do some detailed colouring.  She's been mounted onto the background with puffy pads.

My papers are from the Stamperia House of Roses paper pack.  I've distressed the edges.  I've added 3 plastic swirls by Anna Belle, and KaiserCraft pearls.  My flowers are all Prima.

I'd like to thank Zowie and the team from Arty Divas, for allowing me to design alongside them this week!

You can find my showcase on the Arty Divas blog here.

Thanks for popping in for a look today!
