SHINE {GDT - The Crazy Challenge}

{Guest Designers' Project for The Crazy Challenge}

It was such a lovely surprise to have been a Winner over at The Crazy Challenge for their Challenge 187 and even a greater honour to have been invited as a Guest Designer for them, by the lovely Em. The theme for their current challenge no. 189 is Embossing.

I used this very graceful lady called FLOATING designed by the talented Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs. She is part of a sneak peek for some gorgeous new Fresh Brewed Design digital images coming soon to their store.  The sentiment is from Paulette from CREATE WITH TLC.

I have coloured her with Copics and paper pieced her dress. The folded embellishments have been created with a {Doing LIfe} template shape, which you can purchase here.  The brown cardstock is embossed and I sanded the embossed surface for a distressed look.  The brads are from my stash.





So hop on over to THE CRAZY CHALLENGE and enter their Embossing Challenge.

I would like to try my hand once again at the following challenges:



  • Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge
