Guest Designer for Crafting by Designs!

Hello, how are things with you? Good I hope!
Well I have a card to show that I made as guest designer for Crafting by Designs this week!  I was so chuffed to be asked! One of my previous efforts made their Saturday Spotlight here so I was asked to make something for their current challenge and the theme is Mother’s Day!

Now I know that we have already had this important day here in the UK but is Australia and America they don’t celebrate this until May 11th!

So what did I do? Well I chose to use Alisa with Roses available from Mo’s Digital Pencil! Such a stunning image as all Mo’s are but I have never used one before so thought it was high time I did!

Stamps: ‘Alisa with Roses’ from Mo’s Digital pencil - sentiment free with mag
Dies/Punches:  Tonic nesting circles & swirl -  SB 'Jewel Flowers & Flourishes' - Tattered Lace 'Foliage' - MS corner punch - X-Cut corner rounder
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – LOTV ‘Promises’ patterned & solids
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Markers & Pencils
Others: Pearls, ribbon and paper roses from The Hobby House – MS butterfly mould and air-dry clay - Liquid Pearls – Peacock Feathers DI

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx

  21. Hi, Jane! I don't think anyone can create images as sweet as Mo. Their faces and body "language" convey happiness, kindness, and sweetness. Your coloring has brought this little darling to life. A beautiful card design, those business-size cards are among my favorites! Sure does look pretty with the circular die cut! Lovely! Thank you for your very generous thoughts and prayers. I'm so grateful that my fingertips and hands are beginning to heal up. hugs, de

  22. So beautiful Jane, the purples look fab and your colouring as always is stunning xx
