Invited to be a guest designer!

How very exciting. This month, I had the opportunity to be a guest designer for http://www.craftytemplates.co.uk/ which is run by the lovely Crafty Princess from UK Scrappers.

My challenge was to use a couple of her latest templates and create some cards from them. Now I'll try anything once, and although I'm not the best when it comes to cutting out, as you know, I do like the chance to have a play!

And play I did! The castle card uses buttons, faux stitching (handy black pen) and a handy jewel for the doorknob (well, what else would you use on a castle door if not a gem??!!). The letters are glitzy sparkly ones - but I can't rember whose? Maybe Making Memories ....

For the rainbow card, more jewels came into play, along with some Stickles and Tim Holz distress inks (Faded Jeans, I think).

And the owl card also used gems for the eyes. More inks were used to edge the tree foliage circles, and I cut the tree shape free hand. The grass is also handcut and is stuck on with sticky fixers, to give a more 3-D effect.

Thank you Leo, for letting me play!
