Hopeful



There is a new challenge blog called crafty catz weekly challenge and naturally I had to join in the first challenge (although I don't really have time for cardmaking or the energy)
Anyhow, there was a colourscheme to follow: green/blue/brown. Ok, so not really my colours, but then I came to think of these gorgeous papers from K&co that I had extras of and they were just the right colours!

I made it following a sketch from this week's Whiff of joy challenge blog. This week is special because the blog are celebrating their first blogoversary on saturday and a party is promised :)! Woohooo! Doesn't Charlotte look like she's ready to celebrate?
I'm still hoping Katharina will discover me some day, lol, so what better way than to enter as many Woj challenges as possible.



I'm actually quite happy with this card. Lately I haven't been so I was afraid I would ruin this one too, but I think it turned out quite well. I used a charm that says "hope" instead of a stamped text. Not sure if it fits the card, but it does fit the challenge :) I finally dared to use a white pen to highlight some details like her hair and skirt. My first try, but I think it looks good.

Promarkers used: ivory, pastel blue, cool aqua, pastel green, moss, cinnamon, burnt sienna and umber.
Papers: K&co

Brown panel embossed with cuttlebug embossing folder.
