Guest Designer At Quirky Crafts Challenge!

Good Day Chicks!

Last week I won a challenge at Quirky Crafts Challenge and was so excited!   When I finally realized and responded I was asked to be a guest designer for their new challenge starting today!  How about that! 

The theme for this challenge is The First Signs of Spring!  The sponsor for this challenge is The Stamping Boutique  You MUST go over and check out all of the designs for digi and rubber images.  I'll definitely be going back there for more as she has the nicest digis of flowers in watering cans that I've seen yet.

The daffodil design I chose to use is here.  I originally wanted to colour the watering can and tulips digi but when I started to colour... my grey copic died on me!  I must head to the store for some must have shopping.  When I get the right colours I will  be doing a card using it.  Can hardly wait!

Another requirement for the DT was to make a First Signs of Spring card using the Double Z-Fold Card.  Another 'first' for me!  I think it turned out kind of kewl so will probably end up making another one!

When I did the daffodil I printed out one more so I could colour a few different parts and then cut them out and use them for a 3D effect on the flower and leaf.  I'm not sure if you can see it but there's a few drops of  Glossy Accents to imitate dew drops.  Lastly I used some yellow stickles to add a bit of glimmer.

The recipe is as follows:

Daffodil Digi:  The Stamping Boutique
Sentiment Stamp:  Studio G (Dollar bin at Michaels)
Butterfly:  Stampin' Up!
Paper:  Three Bugs In A Rug, Bazzil, Staples 110 lb. White
Copic Sketch Markers
Ribbon:  WalMart
Punches and Sewing Machine
Pop Dots

There you have it!  I'm off to have another look at The Stamping Boutique Digis!

Hope you all have a wonderful work week!
