A while ago I won a guest DT spot at Crafty Boots and today is the day it as gone live :) Now some of the girls there were surprised to find I'm such a "young" crafter (not in years but in time I've been doing this). I've only been really blogging and making cards properly since August 2014.
The theme is an Easter one and I debated for a while which image to use. I finally decided on Easter Basket Image 35 from Oddball Art.
I've coloured the image with ProMarkers in pastels, cut it out with a Spellbinders Die and edged it with distress ink to make it stand out from the backing paper.
Design papers (which have all been edged with distress ink to make the layers stand out) are from Lili of the Valley. The sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley from one of their stamp sets.
I wanted a spring flower cascading border effect to top left corner around the sentiment. To do this I've used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I've also added flowers to the bottom left and to the left of the basket.
To finish off the card I'e used some tiny brass butterflies charms to add to the spring feel and some pearlised self adhesive gems.
I hope you all like my guest DT card for Crafty Boots and have given you some inspiration
