A bit girlie for me!

I don't really make much in the way of girlie cards, but I do like to join in the Sparkles Monthly challenges and this month the theme is Make It Girly. I have some rather girly digis that I won in a blog challenge, so I printed this one out.

When I had problems colouring digis with Promarkers, somebody suggested watercolouring them so I coloured this one in with watercolour pencils and a wet brush. There was no bleeding, but I think you can tell from the photo that the image buckled slightly, so next time I will try putting watercolour paper through the printer.

Lots of pretty papers from my stash and a wooden butterfly .... job done.

  1. I love the papers you've layered up on this card. Sorry to hear you've had problems with digi stamps have you tried heat setting them with your heat gun? I've heard other people say that if they leave them overnight before colouring they get better results. You don't notice any buckling on your photo. Cara x

  2. Your card is so pretty Jane. What a shame you had a problem with buckling. The papers are very pretty and the image is really sweet. It's certainly girly. Barbxx
