Art by Miran Challenge 37

Hi folks,

I hope you are all well and enjoying some fabulous crafty time. I have a cute little card to share with you today as my inspiration for ABM Challenge 37. When people ask me what my style is I can't really answer as I love to do all different styles. For this card I decided I would make it fairly simple, well that is until I made a mistake putting it together and spent longer fixing it than it took to make the rest of the card. I thought this image called Friday Girl is quite sleek and sophisticated so I wanted to make my card sleek and pretty.

Here it is;
I have used some pretty Echo Park Head Over Heels papers this time, I just love the colours in this collection and I finally got to use this fab Film Strip die collection from Kaisercraft. I wanted her colouring to be subtle but still pop so I have used a lot of white patches this time which is something I find somewhat difficult. I find that these digi's really push me to challenge myself with my colouring and so far I am pleased with the results.

I would really love for you to join in our challenge this time around, I really enjoy coming and visiting all of your lovely creations. Thanks for dropping by.

The challenge I wish to enter are;

Cheers Nicole

Art by Miran Challenge #36

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to share my first official post for the Art by Miran Design Team. I am over the moon to be a part of this awesome and superbly talented crew. I still can't believe that I get to work with these beautiful images all the time, yay!

For my card today I have used the oh so beautiful Flo, she is a rubber stamp that you can find in the Art by Miran Collection at Whimsy Stamps. I just thought she is so pretty and that she would go beautifully with the Echo Park papers that I had been saving for a special project.

Here she is;
The papers I used were quite vibrant so I decided to keep my colouring fairly subtle so I went for my favourite peach blend ( E00, 000 & 93) and I am quite pleased with the outcome. I feel that with any of the ABM images I get to challenge my colouring skills and they are a delight to work with.

I hope that you will join us this time for our Anything Goes Challenge and we would also love for you to pop in to the Facebook group and check out the Progressive Challenge as well as our Anything Goes Facebook Challenge.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to come see you soon.

Cheers Nicole
