So I am entering the below two cards as;
My Greatest - Original Post Link: Little Princess
Now I enjoyed making this card more than anything! :) I loved colouring this image, loved working with this colour scheme and these papers, and I think I smiled the whole time I was making it. :) I consider it to be my greatest card, not because it won a prize, it didnt, but it did get picked for the top 5 Passionista on the Passion for Promarkers and the top 3 in the I love Promarkers challenges. I was blown away to have been picked by the respective DT's and awarded my badges!
My First: I could enter an early card for this, but a real landmark for me this year in cardmaking was using watercolours.......... (Original Link: My First... )
I was really nervous attempting this card, as I had NEVER used watercolour pencils before. Sadly I lost my mum late last year and she had quite a large collection of these pencils, which my dad then passed to me. Anyway, after staring at them long enough, I thought I really must try and give them a go. I enjoyed taking my time with them, and even though it took me a lot longer than I would normally spend colouring an image, it gave me time to reflect and I found it quite peaceful and relaxing.
I think she would have been really proud, as she loved painting and drawing, and in later years card-making, and my mums creativity was always an inspiration to me.
Thanks so much for looking :)
