Rosie D's challenge 63

A really quick post peeps, afraid I nearly forgot this one for Rosie D's new challenge. So many goings on with the Stampalot blog hop and challenge and everyone hoping to get their hands on the Big Shot prize, that my week has sort of drifted by.

Plus I really messed up with my Rosie D's DT card as well, we were given a selection of images from this weeks sponsors Digital Ink for the theme "Just for Men. What did I choose - daffodils, which might have been fine if I had been making perhaps a box to hold bulbs to give to a man, but I had this easel card and matching gift box firmly in my mind, all very feminine. So back to the drawing board and a car theme instead.......I will share the daffodils with you during the week just to prove how versatile the images are.

I coloured the image with Copics, adding diamond glaze for the windows and silver marker pen for the headlights and spokes. The DP and oil can are from Polkadoodles Definitely Not for Women CD and the border punched with Martha Stewart checkerboard.

  3. know what you mean about time running away, just where does it go? You do love your floral cards so can see why the Dafs would be first choice! Love this card the oil can in the corner is such a brill idea. & in answer to your question no not acrylics Sakura with glossy accents on top.
