I have some fab news that I can finally announce - I was runner up in the Card designer of the Year competition ran by Simply Cards and Papercrafts magazine. I was really surprised to place as I was 8 and a half months pregnant when I made my entries and very nearly didn't bother as I'd not made much for ages.
This is 1 of 3 of my entries and the first I made. The image is by Mo Manning and is called "Not even a mouse" and is available here. I printed the image out about 7 times and cut out various layers before colouring them in with my promarkers/flexmarkers. This was very fiddly but it was worth it as it really "popped" off the card! I kept the rest of the card relatively simple as I wanted the image to really stand out.
The papers are from the Papermania Silent Night A4 stack which I really love for the rich traditional colours. I liked it so much I bought 3 pads when it came out which is a while ago now!
I have used a LOTV Christmas round sentiment and my Martha Stewart holly border punch and my new(ish) Tim Holtz weathered clock die.
I will share the other 2 cards with you shortly.
My Joanna Sheen Teamie Lexi was also a runner up in the competition too! What a small world!
Thanks for looking!
