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.
