Creative Card Crew Design Team Member + A Challenge

I am so excited to participate in my first challenge as a Design Team member for the Creative Card Crew

As you may know I first started my crafting as a cardmaker. In the last year, I have been exploring other types of crafts. But one thing always remains. My love of cardmaking. Each is a small piece of art intended to make someone else's day a little brighter. 

Challenge #82 Use Green as the Main Color.
The sponsor this week is Marianne Designs

Prize: Surprise!

The images are from Dragon's Lair Designs 

Prize: 5 lb. Gift Voucher

I used the Meet Snitch digital image. I colored the image using Copic markers, which have been quite neglected over the last year. I really enjoyed picking them up again, as they are my most favorite coloring tool.

I used the vintage car as an inspirations for my paper selection. I pulled out my stash of Tattered Times paper stacks from DCWV and pulled out all the green patterns and solids.

I printed the sentiment as the same time I printed the image. I used an MFT tag stack to to cut the sentiment block. I popped that up on foam squares.

I then took the green pearlescent paper from the paper pack and my Fiskars grass edge punch and created a layered grassy area. Using an EK sucess punch and my McGill stylus tools, I created the flowers and added pearls from CTMH.

You can participate in this week's challenge too. Details can be found on Creative Card Crew's web page. Be sure to look at all of the other design teams' inspirational projects while you are there.

I want to thank everyone at http://creativecardcrew.blogspot.com/ for making me feel so welcome. I can't wait to work with you to bring the love of cardmaking to others.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
Dana Desmond
