Project Lace

Well what a hectic couple of weeks its been at Clairez Cardz.  What with having craft fairs and customer orders, have also had family issues to deal with too, so been busy in all aspects of my life.

And I know it is only halfway through October but as a card maker we need to start thinking of christmas cards and gifts early, so have been working on my christmas card stock for future craft fairs as well as making handmade advent calendars which have proven to be quite popular as they are really a keepsake and can be used year on year.  Pictures can be found at my facebook page .

Well it also that time again for showing you my design team challenge project.  This fortnights theme over at Creative Moments is to use some lace and my image is from Sassy Studio Designs. So make sure you pop over and enter your project

For this card i used a cream cardstock and the lace design was cut out using my Cameo machine, I then used a stripey backing paper from my craft cupboard, the Rainbow Brite image was coloured using promarkers - Magenta and Amethyst with Blush being used for the skin and Tan for the hair, i then embellished with some handmade bows and added a Happy Birthday sentiment.

When looking to see what colours Rainbow Brite should have been i found an image and used that to colour her
and although she looks cool, I decided on some different colours to brighten her up a wee bit as used in the card above - again this image was coloured using promarkers - colours used where Magenta, Amethyst, Royal Blue, Gold, Tulip Yellow, Grass and Blush

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
