It is summer here in the Antipodes, and today we reached 31oC (approx89 oF), and we are waiting for a thunderstorm - the clouds are here, and something must be brewing as the poor old cat is hiding under the bed!!
To help keep her cool, this sweetie from All Dressed Up, our sponsor for CCC Digi Challenge#17, is wearing a hat with a very wide brim, much like my grand children currently are - essential in this weather.
I coloured her with Prismcolor pencils, and enjoyed doing it - colouring seems so therapeutic at times. I stood her on some grass, and chalked a (cloudless) sky above her, but it is very pale and does not show well in the photos.
Next I punched some flowers using a two small Stampin' Up punches, put some sticky tape behind them, and added gold and purple glitter. It got a bit mixed on some flowers, but I am happy with the results, as it was a 'new to me' technique.
The final addition was a piece of ribbon and a flat, folded bow. I have no idea what brand the ribbon is as it was in a RAK gift from Grace of Th-ink-ing of You.
I had 'practised' the flowers, and tried out which punches and how to place the flowers on a scrap, so trimmed this down and popped it inside the card.
Thank you to All Dressed Up for this gorgeous image to work with.
