Seeing as the first challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog closes soon, I thought I'd show this card and enter it in the challenge while I had the chance. The image I've used this time is a retired digi, but there are plenty more to choose from at the Lacy Sunshine shop. This is the only official place to buy the wonderful JPEGs and PNGs of Heather's work. Although I have used "cute" images on the three cards I've made recently with Heather's digis, there are darker, gothic designs as well. Do go and have a look.
I edged an 8"x 8" card blank with a Powder Blue Promarker before layering with a paper I made in MCS. I created a panel of blue striped paper from Polkadoodles Candy Doodle matted onto card edged with blue. I made the mat for the image the same way.
This image is called Eleanor and Pickles Back to School, and judging by the look on Pickles face he might have forgotten his homework. I used Promarkers to colour the image and stuck to pastels this time.
I used dies from Marianne for the flowers, fence and birds and coloured them all with Promarkers. The butterfly is a Joy Crafts Floral Flourish Butterfly which I cut twice and layered. The other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
If you are a Heather Valentin fan come and join the Lacy Sunshine Facebook group. It's a friendly, chatty group where there are regular sneak peeks and digis available to win.
