Morning crafters! & were onto Monday again, which means another Whoopsi Daisy challenge. Now the more I use these beautiful images the more I all in love with them, if you haven't allready seen what they've got - your missing out I can tell you! Head over to theWhoopsi Daisy store & check them out, at less than £2.00 for 4 images the value speaks for itself, but at the moment its also buy one get one free, so thats a staggering 8 images for under £2.00. Most rubber stamps of this quality you'd pay around £8.00 for just one & although I have to say I do much prefer rubber stamps, you CAN achieve the same results when you're working with a good quality dgi like these. There's endless images to choose from of beautiful ballerinas, fabulous fairies, gorgeous girls, amzaing angels & some bonnie boys too. Well thats enough of the describing, my English was never that great! haha.
Also don't forget to go to the Whoopsi Daisy challenge blog to see the rest of the DT work - as always theres some real stunners & perfect inspiration if your thinking of getting some WD images, or for entering the challenge for which you can use any image, but why not give some Daisy one s a try? - I'm sure you'll be hooked like me!....Now enough rambling! onto my card, which I'm extreemly pleased with. I may even go so far as to say it's my favourite?! I've used sheet 215 (scroll down to see sketch used)...
1 more quick thing I appologise for the bad image quality. My memory card broke the other day & as I have an 8mp camera, without a memory card it litterally only stores 1 or 2 images before the memorys full, soooo just figured out how to change the quality to normal from fine & how to use less mega pixels - so I can now get about 10 on at a time. But unfortunately, that means crappy images till its sorted...SORRY!!!!
Now how stunning is that image? & I think she looks so pretty with these lilacy pink & teal colours. This paper pad is just to die for. It is Annalea by Prima & I'd strongly reccoment it to anyone, again I may even go as far as to say its my absolute fave! Imade has been coloured with Copics, had a bit of a disaster when I dropped a dark green brand new Copic on my beautifully just finished image that I was really pleased with (without the lid on!) leaving 2 whopping green marks on the lovely pink skirt & another on her right elbow. So have gone a bit mad with the white highlighter to try & cover it - which I actually think its done the job...Can you spot it?!! - little tip for you there I stumbled across by accident!

Ok so one last look, but first just want to mention the sketch I've used, which is by one of my very favourite craters Chelsea-Lee from Crafting Likes Pieces. If you don't allready know of her - you really MUST go & check out her site she is breathtakingly talented & visiting her site just blows me away every time I go there. She also has a monthly challenge blog CLP challenge & her sketches not only look like a beautuful finished piece of art on their own, but have great workable layouts that have been creatively and cleverly designed & are the only sketches I can guarantee to be bang on every time & don't need to be re-worked in any way. A LOT of educated thought goes into each one & they really are the best sketches I've ever seen, I'm sure they'll inspire you too....soooooo heres this months...
...Told you they were beautiful! & as you can see below I've followed it exactly (although that may not be totally clear as some of the designs hidden under the flowers! ha) Also notice all the edges have been inked & distressed & the main square has been matted on to kraft card-stock...
