Quirky Crafts Guest Designer

Hello again folks, 2 posts in one day from me here as a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be asked by the lovely Design Team at Quirky Crafts challenges to be the guest designer for today's new challenge.
This fortnight the challenge is to make a Clean and Simple Card and as you all know I do tend to struggle with that a little but having done this last week for Make My Monday, I've at least had a bit more practice!
The challenge is being sponsored by the lovely Wendy of Digital Delights by Louby Loo and there's a great prize on offer so do pop over for all the details.


My card features the cute Booboo Bear image and the Sending You Smiles sentiment.


I printed out the image and sentiment and added initial colouring with inks. I then added detail with a mix of Promarkers and Prisma pencils, adding highlights with glitter gel pens. I then cut them out.
I made a simple background for the little bear by masking off the base card leaving a circular aperture. I then stamped a tiny Rubber Stamp Tapestry flower in the circle with pink. yellow and green inks. I added the image in the centre with foam tape.
I made a flowery border with a punched strip (a Martha Stewart double edge punch which I stamped with the same flowers. I added the sentiment to finish.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Clearly Inspired - Flowers
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes

Thanks so much to Cazzy and the team for the honour of being guest designer which I really enjoyed.
