Mi Ran Guest Designer! (Squeal!)

Hello again. This is the second post from me today and there is a good reason!

I want to show a card that I created for my spot as Guest Designer at the Artbymiran Challenge Blog this month!!  I know!!!

I was so shocked when Mi Ran asked me if I would do this and totally overwhelmed. Her images are uber, uber, gorgeous and I was so honoured.

So here is my creation.

I used the beyond beautiful Princess and she is available here.

All Mi Ran’s images just beg to be coloured and made into lovely things and I hope I have been able to do Princess justice here.

Stamps: Artbymiran digi ‘Princess’
Dies/Punches:  Spellbinders ‘Majestic labels 25’ – Dies by Sue Wilson ‘Classic 3D Bow’ – Tattered Lace ‘Foliage’ - Tonic flower punches
Paper/Card: Ivory Velvet – LOTV ‘Petal Fresh’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Pencils
Others: Stickles - Pearls, gems & glitter from stash
Hopeless Hand drawings: None! Phew!

Please check out Mi Ran’s amazing images in her shop here. But don’t blame me if you want them all!! J

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
