DT Cards for Hodge Podge Shop

Hi girls
A lot has happened since my last post... no I didn't win the lottery. But I did win a family ticket to Broxbourne Safari Park on the radio and I have been given a post as a DT (Design Team) member on the Hodge Podge Shop Challenge Blog for six months.  Here are the first cards I have made using their images.

Card Number 1: I made up a basic easel card and printed off HPS (Hodge Podge Shop) image (Genie Oil Lantern), which I coloured with ProMarkers Pastel Yellow and Canary. I highlighted certain parts of the image with a gold Sakura Gelly Roll Pen and added adhesive 1mm gemstones and 2mm pearls.

I mounted the image onto two different DP (designer paper) from the MME Bright Dots Stack. And then added some Petaloo flowers and some roses (from stash). The 'wishes' sentiment, comes from Craftwork Cards.

Card Number 2:  Is your basic A5 card (A4 folded in half). I cut some DP, that I thought would match my colours and stuck it to the base and printed off the second of my HPS images (Halloween Owl) and coloured it using ProMarkers; Indigo Blue, Canary, Pumpkin, Honeycomb, Cocoa, Terracotta and Cinnamon.

I cut a piece of white card and edged it with the Indigo Blue PM so that it would match the blue used behind the moon and mounted the image to that with DSST (double sided sticky tape) and then added a coordinating ribbon.

The digital images used in both of these cards are available here if you are interested.

Hope you like my cards, my first effort as a DT member for Hodge Podge Shop? And I hope that I have offered you a little bit of inspiration to go and make your own. Happy crafting.

Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Fae xxx
