613 Avenue Create Aug 2022

 I have recently joined as DT over on 613 Avenue Create.  There a few ladies I have worked with before when running my own challenge blogs and it is lovely to be working alongside them again.

For this month our sponsor is 

and what beautiful images and papers she has created.  

I have used a beautiful fairy perched on a flower.  I used the already coloured image (My colouring these days are not up my standard like it was in the old days and am quite disappointed with myself) 

Anyhow I wanted to merge her with a background of beautiful blue flowers by PNG Wing and that is exactly what I did.  The sentiment was composed on my laptop and placed next to the images.  I had printed the image twice so I could punch out the butterflies and to also create the trailing dots.  

For this method I place double sided tape on the back of the card and run a die which has dots in the design - I used Sizzix snow die which came in a set with reindeer - cannot remember the actual name sorry.  I then painfully and patiently removed the already sticky dots with the sticky backing with a pokey tool and placed onto the card - doesn't always work first time but perseverance is the key word!!!!

We have 

Guest Designers this month 

Vannessa Danka. 


Why not head on over and share some love.  

Go on over to 613 Avenue Create, join in with the fun challenge and give all the designers some love on their blogs.  They work tirelessly producing beautiful creations each month.  By the way we all become inspired by all - it works both ways.
