Dream Valley: Summer

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my DT card for Dream Valley challenges, where our theme this week is 'Summer'. I coloured my Saturated Canary digi in Promarkers and Flexmarkers to match the Country Garden papers by Bo Bunny that were perfect for this project :-)
I mounted her on Orange cardstock then matted a panel of design paper on it too. I placed these on my card, with a paper border. I embellished with a Polka dot ribbon and some buttons. Then I used a LOTV greeting mounted on the Orange cardstock to tie it all in.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Everybody Art Challenge: Summer
Tuesday Alchemy: Buttons
Freshly Brewed Challenges: Summer
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Sizzling Summer colours and Ribbon
Our Craft Lounge: Sunny Day
Patties Creation Challenges: Summertime
Phindys Challenge: Buttons

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
