Lil Lolita Challenge 1 Blog Hop

10 Jun

YEY, I am so excited as this is the first of many challenges for these gorgeous stamps.

All week us DT Ladies have been sharing our cards, excitement of the growing number of followers and of course the new Lolita’s that will be released soon. Now we cant wait to see what you all come up with for the first challenge.

To celebrate our first challenge we are having a blog hop.  Hopefully you have come to me from Amy if not be sure to go back there to start the hop. Somewhere in our blogs is some candy (5 to be exact), being the image the person has used on their card but it will not be revealed who has the candy until the winners are announced next week.  All you need to do is  follow the blog hop, leave a comment on each of our blogs along the way (something I am sure you will want to do when you see the cards anyhow) and then wait and see. From here (after you have read my post of course!) you should hop along to Carisa’s blog. Good luck!

This week we were eased into the challenges with the theme being  “anything goes” which means there is lots of diversity in the cards something I love seeing. I look at the other DT cards and think WOW they are so good but I would never have thought to do that. So do you want me to stop rambling and show you my first card?! I have used the sketch set this week over at Totally Gorgeous as the base for my card.

 

And here it is:

 

As the weather is dark and gloomy here in Melbourne this week I struggled to get a picture that really showed the softness of the colours in my card but this gives you a better idea:

 

I have used October Afternoon papers, Evie which I coloured with my watercolour pencils, droplets, mesh ribbon, so saffron ribbon and Kraft cardstock from Stampin Up!, flowers are handmade and the edges have been distressed and lightly inked/smudged with brown.

If you don’t own any of the Lil Lolita’s yet, WHY NOT, lol!  Pop over here and order them so you can hopefully join us next week for challenge 2.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
