DT CARD FOR LADY ANNE'S CHALLENGE NO 2
Hello my blog friends and buds! I really must apologise for not posting or visiting your blogs for so long but I have been having a few problems of late -which I do not wish to bore you with!!! In fact I have only made a couple of cards recently as a DT member for Lady Anne's Challenges. Must admit I am thankful that I am on the DT because, if not, I doubt that I would have made any cards at all!!
Anyway I have tried to keep as positive and as 'oh be joyful' as possible and (the main reason for mentioning it now) I am beginning to feel more myself - well 10% is better than 0%!!! I am sure I will be back on form - watch out for more wafflings Jenny, Sue and Christine!! - they will be back with a vengeance I am sure. Ooops I think they are back already!!!!
Here is a card that I've made for my other DT spot on Lady Anne's 'new' Challenge - http://www.ladyanneschallenges.com/14/post/2013/05/2nd-lady-annes-challenge.html . The challenge runs from 6 May - 2 June 2013 and entails making an easel card. We were given some gorgeous images to choose from so I chose the fly fishing one - they are by Digi Darla Designs who are offering the winner a prize of 5 digital images of your choice! They have some really great images.
The funny thing is that I really enjoyed making this one, even though I haven't felt like crafting for a while! I am popping a close-up of my flies on here - steady girls I'm not that mad - yet!
I made the flies by printing and cutting out three hooks (digi images from t'web) then glued a little bit of bendy wire to the back of them. I used a bronze metallic Promarker to colour the hook and then chopped up a few 'gaily' coloured feathers - I glued these on and also wound some metallic thread around them to make them look like 'waffle flies' - (yup I made 'em so I can name 'em) lol!!!
