Another first, My DT card for Blackberry Lane Designs.

I'm so thrilled, and proud I have to add, to say I've been asked to be part of the Design Team for Deborah over at Blackberry Lane Designs. Deborah is a very talented artist and has just launched her beautiful digi images featuring nature, birds, animals, and other items that I know you'll enjoy. As she's just starting out I hope you'll pop over and follow her, and collect the freebie digi I've used in my projects of course.

I printed my card back and front with co-ordinating papers. Cut it on Diagonal and Tri-folded. I embossed the rose bud design, and using a wet cotton bud, followed the design to get a bleached' effect. The word Friends is de-bossed down the front edge, doesn't show up well on pic though does it. I don't have a huge range of pro-markers so the colours I've used may seem strange. I went all over the 'finished' leaves with lime green to blend them all together and did the same with the blooms using ......wait for it....tulip yellow. 

My Receipe -

A not very well lit pic of open card. 

This is my second project using the Tulip. An ATC for a swap I'm doing this month. The theme is favourite flower. It's really my mothers favourite, but I adore orange/peach Tulips, so it qualifies. I flipped the image as you can see...my first time doing anything like that so happy to find how easy it was. I used some of my scrap from the card and embossed it using a textured impressions folder. Well I hope that's wet your appetite for some more of Deborah's Image's which you'll find right here
