Catch up of February's DT projects

Had a bit of a nightmare with my laptop in February and so wasn't able to update my blog. I really missed being able to join in challenges so I'm glad it seems to be working again now...shhhh don't say it too loudly!

I joined the lovely Fiona's team at Create and Inspire last month, and our sponsor was Oddball Art Stamps Co - the wonderfully talented Lizzy Love's designs. I used the fabulous Big Eye Girl Dancing Huni 174. I decided to keep to black and white with shades of grey for this, as I had some fab hearts and love themed designer papers I wanted to use with it.
I ripped and distressed the edges of the designer paper with the blade of a pair of scissors then used Distress Ink to edge it so it stood out from the white card stock.  The image was coloured with Polychromos pencils in black and greys, with white as a blending colour. The wording came with the image, and I printed it out and cut round it in a heart shape and edged with black ink.

The second project for February was for A Inky Mess with the sponsor Scrap N Dipity. I used the image Fairy Ambrosia - Looking for Love. I coloured her in using my Polychromos pencils, then fussy cut her out. I embossed a piece of black card stock and cut it to ATC size, then I got various designer papers with the theme of love and ripped and distressed the edges of them, before sticking onto the black card.. I stuck the image on top, and added a couple of flat backed pearls.
I'm so glad to be well enough to be able to get back to what I love doing - creating projects both for myself, family and friends as well as for the lovely design teams I'm in.

I'm so happy to be back in blogland! Its been far too long! Long story short, its been, and still is, a rocky road health wise, but I'm hoping that now the days are drawing out it won't be long til Spring and warmer weather. My body doesn't cope with cold!
I'm pleased to announce I joined the DT over at Create and Inspire in February. I'm so happy to be part of the talented team and looking forward to creating different types of projects in the coming months. I'll share last month's challenge inspiration project on my next post - my laptop was playing up last month so I couldn't blog.

This months challenge is sponsored by StarStampz.. We chose two digi stamps and  'm using this cutey, called Spring Sun Shine. I used my Promarkers to colour her in, keeping to predominantly green and pink as this was the colour scheme of the bag and embellishments I wanted to use.

I used a die cut ivory piece of card and overlaid it with a pale green gingham piece of paper from my stash. I added a die cut piece of felt on top that again, I had been gifted and had in my stash. I fussy cut the image and stuck it to the front, after I had attached the flowers, and I tucked the image behind one so it was grounded with the background. I added the tag and butterflies as the finishing touches.
Here's a close up of the image.

Thanks for stopping by! Please do comment and let me know what you think.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
