Happy Monday crafty friends. Today marks the start of a new challenge over at the Cute N Crafty Challenge Blog. The sponsor for this challenge is Treasure Box Designs and the prize is 2 digis from the store. The DT got to work with this sweet image called Poppy Pals Emma.


I resized the image in Silhouette Studio so that she would fill out most of the front of an A2 card. I wanted her to be front and center on my card. I then printed her out onto Daler-Rowney Drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. Once I had colored her, I returned to my Silhouette and cut her out. I ran my black Tombow marker along the cut edge of the digi. This makes a big difference to the finished look of the cutout.


Using a top fold cardbase, I added a piece of glitter gold washi tape to the very bottom edge. Then I glued Emma to the card and added a die cut sentiment and three jewels from my stash to complete the card.

Remember to head over to Cute N Crafty and enter your makes there. We look forward to seeing your creative projects.

  3. Really cute image and fabulous colouring -my pencil colouring looks like a 5yrs old although that's maybe a slight on a 5yrs old-sometimes not that good with my promarkers too --too impatient lol

  4. This image is adorable and your coloring is amazing. How beautiful. I haven't tried cutting my digis with the Silhouette. I'm afraid of cutting a finished image incorrectly. I guess I could try first with uncolored images. I tried pencils again today and it was disastrous. Funny how one day it's really good and the next day just doesn't work I did it over with Copics.
