Sorry I'm late posting my DT card, my dad was rushed into hospital this morning, and I'm running to and from the hospital and looking after my mum who has very bad MS. I've finally got a few minutes to myself so need to do something to take my mind off things. On to the Challenge at C.R.A.F.T. This week it's decoupage, something I think you either love or hate. I've used a download for my image, (found online, can't remember where from or whose image it is, so if anyone recognises it please tell me so I can credit the right person). I've coloured the image with pro-markers, and layered the dress, hair, wings, socks, some of the berries and a leaf. It's the first time I've used the combination of purple and green, and quite like it. The dp is HOTP and cs is Bazzill. I've added some Bazzill flowers and a Dovecraft brad, and also a butterfly charm. To finish, I adhered a strip of card to the side with some K & Co. gems. The prize this week is from Donna's Den of Crafts and it's some fab Dovecraft goodies. Please post new work only, by 8pm next Wednesday to be in with a chance of winning. Please take a look at the creations by the rest of the design team for some great inspiration.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
