Art by Mi Ran Progressive Challenge

It must be a first! For once I am not posting this with hours to spare but with weeks to spare. This means there is still time for you to have a go if you have not already done so. To jump on board you will need to buy the first image then for successive months request it for free. For more details see the Art By Mi Ran Facebook Page.

Materials used:SAM_2837(watermarked)
Art By Miran – Digi Girl 294 (Reserved Listing)
Dragons Lair Designs – Artistic Expressions Papers
dies – doily, circle, butterfly
Copic pens
X-Press It card
silver sentiment sticker
brown and black card
printer card
white A5 card blank

The image is printed out to the correct size on X-Press It card, coloured with Copics and die cut with a circle die.

The doily and two butterflies are cut from a sheet of paper printed from theĀ Artistic Expressions Papers set. One butterfly is layered over the other leaving the wings free.

The image is layered onto the doily then matted onto brown and black card before attaching to the card blank.

The butterfly and sticker are added last.

It’s been a bit busy for me over the last few days. We have made a start on decorating our new house, who’d have thought stripping wallpaper could be such fun but so tiring! Still I keep telling myself it will be worth it in the end!

Thanks for popping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    A cute little girl, and I love the hair with her pretty yellow dress. The doily framework looks nice with her sweet little self, and loving the darker background. Stripping wallpaper does NOT sound like fun to me (I’ve only ever watched it done mind you!). The redecorating of the new house sounds like a fun project though, picking out your colors & themes. LOts of hard work too. I’m admiring that you still have time & energy & motivation to make cards! TFS & have a great week. Hugs
