Yes I am using my laptop after sitting at my card making desk! (((YEAH))) Wondering why I am celebrating check out my “Why am I missing?” post.
It felt so good to be at my desk that I actually made 2 cards for the same challenge but using 2 different sketches. And along with the card crafting I actually felt like doing some colouring as well. But my foot is feeling a little sore now from being down for so long – well actually it hates being in the boot!!
Any-who onto the card!
This image Heart Melt is from Power Poppy and its part of the Va-Va Valentine Collection. Isn’t it great! I loved it as soon as I saw it I had to colour it up for the
Power Poppy & Page Maps Collaboration Challenge
So as you can see I used this Horizontal card map
Now that I have been introduced to this company I will be stopping by often to see the new “Maps” that they come up with. This is one of my favourite places to start when making a card project.
The image was coloured with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils, I love using this colouring medium.
(I hope to be able to take up colouring classes with Alyce from Kit and Clowder again one day so that I can improve even more. I can highly recommend any of the classes presented by Alyce. She is the BEST teacher on the internet by far!! What you pay is worth so much more than she charges.)
Since I made this card for my Hubby for Valentines Day I decided to use more masculine papers too make the actual card. So good to use up some stash papers.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. Before you leave as always I would like to leave you with this thought
In the last 6 months I have experienced all of this and it is through the love of my God plus my family and friends that I am able to keep moving forward. Even if at the moment it is at a slow pace.
Have a Happy Crafty Fun Filled kind of Day,
