June - Day 4

Hi blogworld,

This is going to be, for me, a real flier - have been moving hubby over into my craft / mess room all day and still got cake to ice, invitations to finish and a bit of relaxing to do before going to bed!!

But I really wanted to try and keep up with a post a day - and I have a card to show as well!  So I'll do the post and then see tomorrow if I can find any challenges to link up with.

So Day 4 - our prompt is:

Day 4: What is your craft/s? What is it about this craft/s that floats your boat so much OR Craft something that has a flower theme

Well at the moment - it's card making (it has been both cross-stitch and scrapbooking) - I'd have to say, for me, it's not the actual card that I enjoy making so much as the colouring and the giving of the card (tho that's not strictly the craft bit, is it?).  I'm not that brilliant at colouring, but I'm improving and, when I can de-stress about how much I'd like to colour like so and so, or that person is just brilliant, or doesn't that person shade well, I actually enjoy the process of going from a b/w image to a fully coloured one.

Just wish I could draw the actual images - wouldn't that be something!!

And the card to share - hope it's flowery enough for the theme?  It's also a new one for me - a shadow card!  Oooh, er missus!

 I used:
Sarah Kay Image - Rosie's Garden
coloured with my Promarkers

Nesties - Ovals and Floral Frame

No idea

Anything else?
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers and leaves
Create and Craft - gem swirl
Gotta go - loads to do!

You got a lovely shine of the hair there so you cant say your not good at colouring. I cant colour shine at all. So there!

A shadow box card. I've only just tried making one myself too (just need to find the time to blog it!) ^_^
Your card is beautiful. I also like how you shaded the jeans. Also love the idea of blogging a post a day in June. I wouldn't be able to do it! Keep it up!
