Saturated Canary Travel Light

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a new card using one of the newer Saturated Canary digis, I haven't had a chance to use before-I love her! I coloured her with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Copics, then cut round her with a wide border. I placed her on My Minds Eye sunburst paper, as it seemed perfect for a holiday themed card and then mounted it on dark green cardstock. I used complimenting papers as my base and as a border, then added polka dot ribbon. I used card candy and a Good luck dome greeting then added a butterfly fluttering by with a gem trail.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Calendar: Fun in the Sun plus Sparkle and Shine
Craftymess Challenge: Sun or moon
Little Claires: Summer Holiday
City Crafter: Bon Voyage
Creative Craft Challenges: Summertime
Passion for Promarkers Challenge: Feeling Fruity (Oranges)
Shopping our Stash: Something New

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!
