At Through The Purple Haze this week the theme is funky girls and boys here is my design
The image is from Kenny K and I coloured her using spectrum Noirs, I added highlights to her hair shoes jeans and t shirt using glitter gel pens. The backing papers and the flowers are from Hot off the press as is the little tag. I aged the image slightly using brown ink and went round the edges of the flowers using a glitter gel pen. The paper clip is from a box I picked up at my local supermarket. I finished off with cosmic shimmer black pearl pva to make the flower centres and the pearls.
I am entering this card into the following challenges

- I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. In 2011 I completed my certificate in papercrafting as a result of the work I did as part of the course I started entering challenges on line and in magazines. I applied for design teams and also started making samples for Ooh La La Creations for their shows on Create and Craft. I have now completed my Diploma in professional crafting and most recently been runner up in the Papercrafter of the Year 2013 a competition run by Papercraft essentials magazine, I don't have a particular style I like to use elements from lots of styles and techniques, although I do love all things vintage. In 2014 I started to move more towards scrapbooking to take care of the huge family archive of photographs that were stored in my attic. I have continued cardmaking and Scrapbooking through 2015 and 2016 but have also become interested in off the page projects. I hope to be able focus on these in the future.
