Families & Warm Fuzzies

THis card and I have been places. I originally made it for a DT but then got the dates wrong so that the challenges I made the card to fit would all have been expired by the time I could post it, so now I'll have to make another DT card cos I can't let the challenges escape from me! lol

Front view:
Colors: Prismacolors
Gems and flowers: Recollection
Dies: Nestability
Tag: handmade with stamp by Stampin Up, distress inks and chalk

A close up of the image which took me about four hours to color...

more close ups..

I actually found a handmade tag in my stash that I thought I could use and went to the trouble of coloring my image and decorating my card to "go with" this tag only to find when it all came together that  the tag was way too big to fit.  So back to the drawing board....I made a new one.

And the colossal mess I made for one card!!

That's it!  Well, its not it, but I'm not showing you the floor!Thanks for coming by to visit. :-)
I would like to enter this in some challenges before I go...

Creative Cottage: Bling It On
Litter Red Wagon: Make your own embellie
Cooking It Up With Katie: Digi plus yellow plus sparkle
Paper Play: A hidden extra, tag etc

Thanks for all your comments and coming to see me. :-)

I know all the trouble you went for this card, but it was worth it because it looks really good. Has lots of dimension and fun stuff on it! The image is darling! A moment like Tweet and you Mom may have had! Too bad about the challenge! You'll make a awesome card for that one too! You may even like it better! You just have to stress about tags again!

Vintage Milly said...

Oh Dorcas, this is just gorgeous, I love your colouring of this image so much, it is perfect!
Your desk made me giggle, I thought I was the only one who made a mess on the desk and floor each time I made one card tee hee! I guess we are all the same us crafters,
take care,

Tine said...

Hi Dorcas. Fab colouring of course, and it is easily done to get the dates of various challenges a bit confused when you are trying to tie them into DT work. Lovely coloured edge around your image too.
Tine :)

Annika said...

Dorcas, I need colouring lessons from you, seriously. I blew up the image closeup and boy am I impressed. Such a wonderful organic shadowing and highlighting down to the way you gave Nana's hair tiny yellow light points to mirror girls hair. I love the way you create the grounding without blending, would love to learn to do that!

Cheryl said...
