I am SOOOOO THRILLED to have been invited to be a Guest Designer for October for Mo's Digital Pencil too. I absolutely LURVE Mo's images and the quality of the creations made by the oh so talented design team are out of this world beautiful.
The challenge this week is "Patchwork". I spent an afternoon cutting out sufficient hexagons and little squares to cover my 6 by 6 card blank and then in my excitement to make a card pretty enough to be showcased beside my teamies' cards, I promptly proceeded to cover up most of the patchwork! What a ditz!
I used Mo's "Baby Boy with Straight Hair". He is one of a number of absolutely adorable baby boys and girls and you can find him here. I coloured him very softly with my Copics.
My plain patchwork is by DCWV and the patterned paper is cut from a Forever Friends stack. I cut it out as a frame and mounted it on top of the patchwork with dimensional stickies. For embellishment I used a brand new die by Joy Crafts I bought on sale at a recent craft fair and weaved some green and blue ribbon through it. My safety pin is from an MS punch, the little pram and rocking horse in opposing corners are laser cut images by Anne-Marie Klipp and I added rather a lot of ribbon from my stash, cutting out a teddy, 2 hearts and a baby bottle. The sentiment was a magazine freebie.
Thank you so much to the lovely ladies at DP2 for selecting me to be this month's Guest Designer! Please do visit their blogs - these crafters are Sooooo talented, share some love and come and play along!
