About Me

Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom
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.

Goo morning every one it's time for a new challenge over at Fab n Funky

Firstly  thanks to everyone who joined in with us last week, so many fabulous entries. Please check out the  blog to see if you were a winner.

For this week the challenges is 

Spots or Stripes
......or even both!

Here is my card

I have used Mr Bunny's Eggs from StampArt Design by Kathryne

I am so fed up of looking out of my window at the gloomy weather I chose a fresh spring colour palette for the card. I coloured the image using promarkers. The bunny was coloured with cool grey 1 and 3. I added blush and pastel pink inside his ears. His bow is duck egg and china blue. For the eggs I I used the following, Pear, Mos,Mint, dusky pink, lilac, sunflower, poppy, canary bright orange and fuschia.

The papers are from My Craft Studio's essentials range and I matted these onto pale green card stock from American Crafts. The flowers were cut using a tattered lace mini flowers die and I used white paper and coloured these with promarkers in blush, blossom, and vanilla. The finishing touches are the computer generated sentiment and the pink pearls using Cosmic Shimmers pearlised PVA glue.
