A new challenge at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, Crafty Ann has a new challenge starting today and its a sketch challenge with an optional twist to make it a monochromatic creation. I nearly managed a monochrome card but couldn't resist adding a splash of colour to the main image. Pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fab sketch and also the prize up for grabs for our lucky winner.

I've used papers from Crafty Ann's abstract collection for this card and one of Ann's new images the beautiful 'Narrow boat scene' (you can find them in Crafty Ann's digi shop). I've matted the papers on cream card and coloured the image with Derwent coloursoft pencils. To embellish the card i've added some lovely olive green gingham ribbon.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Daisy Doodles: anything goes with a digi
Di's Digi Designs: ribbons and bows
Shelley's Images: anything goes

Thanks for visiting today

  2. It's a beautiful card Claire, I lvoe the design , the colours and the main image. Wouldn't it be nice to be cruising down the river in the sun? Caz

  3. Super with the greens for the background layers - makes me think of luscious grass field through which the narrowboat is travelling.
