NON-DT cards!

Hey everyone, I wanted to show you this card i've been working on over the last few days. I decided to have a break from following themes or doing DT work and just sit at my craft table with a bunch of digis I had already printed and picked one at random and just made it up as I went along! Im pretty chuffed with the result. It's been a while since I have just 'played' and made a card for the hell of it - don't get me wrong I LOVE doing all my DT work but it was lovely to just go with the flow. So I used Princess Honor from Saturated Canary - found HERE

I coloured her with a mixture of Promarkers and Copics. I only have 8 copics (4 x browns and 4 x pinks) so the skin, grass, bow & arrow and ground are all promarkers. The more I use copics the more I am liking them and despite having every promarker I have decided to expand the copics collection so have ordered some blacks as well so I'm now stalking the postie again waiting for my happy post. 

I used some lace I had in my stash along with a patterned button and a sentiment tag from Lily of the Valley found HERE. A range of lace, buttons and pearls are available from That Craft Place

The clouds were done using a stencil brush and a cloud template with Broken China distress ink. 
I did a video tutorial 

As always I used the same papers inside as I did on the front and added a simple Happy Birthday stamp. Papers are Sweet Owl from First Edition papers and the stamp is by Clarity Stamps. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  4. Beautiful card. And I love that the arrow is part of the image and not added on. I can't wait to watch your video. I know how to do clouds (when I need clouds) but I'm seeing more and more of them behind the image and can't wait to see what I can learn from you. Thanks for sharing...and good luck this week.
