Secret Crafter DT Card - ICS/PTW


This weeks challenge at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has been set by my blogging buddie Donna, She has chosen the theme of "Pink & Turquoise with a Hint of Brown". Thought this was going to be an easy combo but looking threw my realms of papers had a hard job matching the turquoise so done the best I could and this is what I came up with. The image is from my new WOJ Summer Set. Coloured her with Promarkers and Prisma/Derwent Pencils. Used my stipple brush again around the image, love using this to shade the card and mixing colours is easy. Not sure what the papers are, got a draw labelled "Bits", but there are alot of bits in there, good to use up scraps instead of wasting. Used El-M and MS punches and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Ribbon, pearls and dragonfly from stash. 

I based this cards on the sketch from this weeks ICS. Next week I start my new DT post with the challenge blog and cant wait, some great sketches are on there way! And am also entering this into Papertake Weekly where they want you to use scraps on the card. 
Dont forget to take a look at what the other DT's have made, wonderful cards/projects as always. 
Enjoy what looks like a glorious weekend here in England and be back soon with another post
