Lets have a look at what the DT have been up to for this challenge!
I used a pale yellow card which has an oval shape in the middle of it which can be taken out, but as I'm not sure how to use this type of card I left it in place and put on it 4 dolphin Peeloffs which I coloured using Acetate & Peel off pens, according to the colours on their pen lid they were yellow & orange although when I used the latter on the card it looks more like brown doesn't it? I then added a frame using watercolour pencils, at the top I used a blue one with a green at the bottom, I then added some yellow iridescent stars in the top two corners & a Gold Happy Birthday at the bottom. Finally I stuck a piece of white hand made paper on the inside so that the shape didn't come off!
I've used an image by Pollycraft coloured with promarkers and coloured the hearts on the dress with an orange sakura stardust pen. The ribbon has been dyed wth a yellow promarker and the faux stitching is a sakura souffle pen. I used a martha stewart punch (my one and only one!) and sprayed the whole card with diamond dazzles glimmer mist.
White scalloped card to start, with a piece of Kanban Edwardian Orange card for the background. The fish are digi's from Bee Crafty printed out in different sizes, coloured with Pumpkin & Bright Orange ProMarkers & mounted with foam pads. I've run them through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder for a bit of texture and added orange Stickles Glitter to their fins. The underwater foliage is punched out from Doodlebug Sugarcoated cardstock using a Nellie Snellen branch punch and the bubbles were punched using a household hole punch!
I have used a digi stamp from Meljens designs, coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on to orange then yellow card, the edges have been punched with a Stampin Up scalloped border punch then trimmed with some gingham ribbon. The sentiment was also punched with a Stampin Up punch and edged with ink. My backing papers are both K&Co.
I have used a digi stamp from PollyCraft for my image and the sentiment is from Tiddly Inks. For the borders I used one of my X-Cut border punches. I have coloured the image with ProMarkers and added some stickles glitter glue to the flowers and grass. The ribbon, paper and card are from my stash.
For my recipe card I have used various papers in yellows and oranges (my Happy Colours), Fiskars punch for the edge of the card and an EK Success punch for the corners. The Butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and a Papermania white felt one coloured with a yellow Promarker. I little bit of twinkle courtesy of gems and Stickles glitter glue and a lovely summery card is born :)
