LOTV DT Card and a few challenges

This week over at LOTV we have a fantastic sketch for you to work with. I had so much fun making this card and managed to get my nesties out for a change. This is another sneak peak of one of the many new releases on the 25th January. A pleasure to colour and so cute!
The papers are the new BG Origin and thought the colours were perfect for this card. Coloured with Copics and a MS punched Butterfly. My MM Slice decided not to play ball and I didnt want a wonky tag so I made this myself using the MS corner punch I took delivery of yesterday. Told myself I was on a ban. Well, 3 weeks wasn't bad. The sentiment is an old stamp I found in a draw while looking for something else, always the way but I do like this, think its only been inked the once.

Anyway, do take a look at what crackers the rest of the DT have come up with this week, I bet you'll love this sketch as much as I did.

As usual, this card fits in with a few other challenges, so another deep breathe!

Quixotic - Ink Up an Old Stamp
Simon Says - Punch it
Incy Wincy - Favourite Medium
Charisma- Fruity Colours
One Stop Craft Challenge - Fancy Edges/Corners
Crafty Catz - Birthday

Thanks for looking and do hope you can join in with the new challenge. Its open for 2 weeks and remember to pencil in the release date of the New LOTV Stamps - 25th January.

Thanks for looking and back soon with another card!



I'm not able to post cards at times as the pixels are too high and would really like to know how to sort this probem so I can add to forums etc. Resizing doesn't seem to make any difference!
Infact, if you have any tutorials for anything Mac related pass them here.
I'm Useless - Doh!!!!!!

strawberry fields said...

Oh Claire this is gorgeous hun! Love the image....keep seeing it on people's blog....must get it!
I've got a mac and had the same prob.
You just go into 'file' on the top menu then 'export' and check it is set to jpeg file type then medium in all the size colums then export it into your documents.
Lots of cameras now are set to high pixels. You could change the camera setttings but i find dong it on the computer easier.
Just email me if you have any probs
