DID SOMEONE SAY MINT CHOCOLATE?



Hello Everyone...

Great hop yesterday for Lacy Sunshine  thanks to all who joined in..

Today is a card for me..just for fun.. and trying to find my mojo..

East Wind Challenge Blog gave out an image to join in with their challenge..

Aurora - Bubble gum and mint chocolate...so had to join in...



There she is...and what a hunny she is...

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and a few copics...



No designer papers with this one..just blue,brown and white card stock...oh!...except for the brolly..I paper pieced that with a scrap..



Kept the background as it was and added scraps of ripped manilla folder for sand...added brown glitter to that...punched a wave with a Fiskars punch...and added Marianne creatable shells and a memory box umbrella and clouds...

And there you go...I was quite happy with it and it made me get crafting again...

Entering these challenges...

I'm a DP and die addict, but I also like to play with plain papers. It certainly works well with this summery scene. It feels clean, but not plain, and one really sees how beautifully you've colored the image. Glad you found your mojo again!

FABulous scene Chrissy..LOving your 'brolly' and these pretty shells.
