A New Project!

It's a while since I "collaberated" with anyone in the crafty sense, so I was delighted when a lovely fellow Etsy seller approached to ask if I would consider making some sample cards to showcase the new digi stamps she had designed; well, I'm always on the lookout for a new project so I got to work on the first image and this is the result:

I'm not the best colourer-inner in the world and I was worried I wouldn't do the lovely image justice, so I decided to incorporate my fave technique of paper-piecing by tracing the larger background shapes onto patterned paper and then reprinting the image and colouring the fairy/swing with a mixture of felt-tips and pencils, before cutting out that part and layering it on top with foam pads for added dimension.

It was a great image to work with, it printed out well and was fun to colour. I look forward to using some of Dawn's other designs in cards very soon. 

You'll find her shop here:

So excited to see how you brought my fairy to life and can't wait to see some more creations. I'm really glad you liked working with the design and you're definitely much better at colouring in than me!
