Wow I'm a Guest Designer!

How exciting!  I applied to Friday Mashup in their recent call for DT members, I figured that the competition would be strong, it would depend on what the team was looking for to compliment the existing members styles but decided to put my 'hat in the ring' so to speak.  

While I wasn't successful at snagging a spot for the next 6 months, I appreciate how hard that decision would have been to make.  I was asked to be a Guest Designer for the rest of April.  I hope you share in my excitement. I'm pretty happy to be asked to participate as a Guest Designer so......

Here is my Mashup of the challenge #2  I've decided to work with both the sketch and the colour combo in this card.  

I've used the Crumb Cake as the card base, stamped this up with the flourish from Friends 24-7 and layered Marina Mist and Cajun Craze to provide a mat for the image, I punched the scalloped edge and was going to go right the way across but quite liked the border effect so left it there, I then stamped the image in Cajun Craze on Crumb Cake.  I painted a small amount of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint onto the flowers in the image to provide a little bit of POP.

The Marina Mist half flower was a challenge to sort out until I stuck it to a punched out circle and folded that up to slide under the last of the creases, it worked a treat!  I added a small antique brad to the flower and of course, the Champagne Shimmer paint is spritzed all over the card base to provide a slight shimmer.

I then decided to go with another card with this colour combo and made this which is a case of a card I made ages ago.  The stripey background card is just swiped ink pads onto the cardstock, three colours and it looks so fabulous!  Simple weaving of ribbons on a square of cardstock and dressed up with paper daisies sponged with ink.  I've also dragged out the old Pretties kit (retired) and used up a hat pin and some beads from it.  I'm actually entering this second card into the challenge, just to play along.
