Good Morning crafters!

Our April challenge is live on the blog and we're ready to see what you have on your craft desk this month!

I've used one of the images from the Flower Set Digi Stamp 2, and coloured the image with markers, using a technique from Kit & Clowder's Elements of Nature class. 

I really wanted the image to pop, so I've gone with a clean and simple card design (very unusual for me!).

I've used a Darice embossing folder for the background, a Couture Creations hotfoil stamp for the sentiment.  This is the first time I've successfully foiled something, after many frustrating practice runs.  I've used the Couture Creations Go Press & Foil machine for the job.

My image, sentiment and embossed page have been frames with plain red cardstock.

I've taken a 2nd pic of the sentiment, at an angle, to show the red foiling - it just doesn't show up on a straight-on photograph.

You can click our challenge banner at the top of the page to see what the rest of the team have created this month.  We also share our inspiration in our Facebook group, so to see more, join us there:
