Wishing you a pot of love

What a busy week it's been here. We have finally put our house on the market, so it has been scrubbed and cleaned from top to bottom. It's going to kill us to keep it this tidy :-)

Having my craft room all packed up seems to be working in my favour though. Recently my cards have been much simpler, and I think I have finally found my style (it's only taken 3 years!)

On to this week's Totally Papercrafts Challenge and our host is the super, talented Lisa, with one of her own sketches for you to follow.

I love sketches and seeing how people bring the different elements together, so I hope you will play along this week. 
I have used the gorgeous Wryn, from Tiddly Inks. Her dress is paper pieced and then she is coloured with Copics (and a little stickles glitter) cut out and attached with foam pads.

My favourite things at the moment are my super, cute cloud dies - I seem to be using them on every card!
This time I cut them in the DP too and kind of overlapped them.
What do you think?

Crafty Sentiments - Bingo I went for the top line Paper Piecing/Patterned Paper/ Glitter.

Love this TI image Caroline. Wryn is such a sweet character and you have really brought her to life with your coloring. Your cloud layers are and awesome idea. If this is your "style" it is amazing. Have a lovely, crafty weekend <3

Turtle In The Sand said...

Oh I do love your newly discovered "style". Wryn is one of my favorite characters and she is colored to perfection. Cutting her out, popping her up and making her larger was a perfect idea. Great dp and stitching too. Have a fun weekend and don't "untidy" anything in the house except the craft room. Hugs, Linda
