May 2016 Midway Reminder - April Showers bring Quirky May flowers!

It's reminder time for our last challenge for a few months, and it's all about flowers, following our Quirky April furry showers!

This is a very popular challenge and you hardly need a reminder!

Also if you are interested in joining the DT later in the year when we hope to resume challenges, please contact me at any time during the next few months.

Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are:

I just realised I forgot to tell you about the amazing prizes which are:
Ist prize Ike's Art $15 worth of digis of choice
, 2nd Prize Delicious Doodles 4 digis of choice,
 3rd prize Bloobel Stamps 3 digis of choice

Now for some inspiration from the team:

A truly beautiful card by Elena using Rosalie from Delicious Doodles. Superb colouring Elena!

I colored my image with Copics, then fussy-cut her and adhered her to my vivid purple paper.
I cut  my pattered paper to the same size as Lulu's Peekaboo circle and now it looks like
she's peeking out of a purple room.
Besides the tiny flowers on my patterned paper, I lined the rim of Lulu's window with jewelled flowers. staying with the flowers theme of this challenge, my sentiment inside reads:
"May your day bloom with wonderful surprises".

Peekaboo Lulu

I colored Daisies & Butterfly Frame from Delicious Doodles with Copics.
Using Photoshop, I used the image to frame a pic of my daughter,
using digital elements and papers to complete my layout.

Nana Connie is unwell and will join us in a few days.

Sorry I'm late! Here is my first card using a gorgeous image from Ike's Art called Greek Window. I have never been to Greece, and would love to visit one day! I googled Greek houses to try and get the colours right.
I will be back with a Bloobel Stamps card next.


This is my take on Flower Square by Ike's Art
coloured using Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pens,
mounted onto raspberry card, black card, matt gold paper,
added lace and a 6x6 white linen effect card base.
Glitzy Babe sentiment was an afterthought.

Have Fun - The Quirky Crafts Challenge Design Team.
