The Paper Shelter Challenge #249

The Paper Shelter Challenge #249

Hi everyone, well today is the start of a new challenge over at 

The Paper Shelter 

It's also my first challenge as a Design Team member for them too, 
and I would like to thank Shirley and my Teamies for making me 
me feel so welcome.

Our challenge's theme this fortnight is 


Card Recipe
Spellbinders nesting dies, aqua polkadot design paper from my stash, 
aqua linen textured card from my stash, joy craft leaf die, aqua satin miri,
handmade blooms from petal-lu, mulberry roses, rosebuds & blooms 
from WOC, butterfly punch, sentiment from my stash, aqua pearls, nuvo 
glitter drops, nuvo gloss crystal drops, tumbled glass distress ink, rose 
ribbon, white lace and silver butterfly charm.

This is a close up of the gorgeous petal-lu bloom and also the ribbon, which 
believe it or not started out as a white ribbon that I colourised using one of the 
same promarkers that I used to colour this beautiful The Paper Shelter image.

The beautiful image is from The Paper Shelter and she is called 

She's Charming

I coloured her with a selection of pro/flexmarkers, windsor & newton

Skin ~ coral, dusky pink, blush, almond & rose pink 
Hair ~ satin, tan, tawny owl & shale
Dress ~ soft aqua, cool aqua, oasis & frosted jade
I then gave her a beauty spot using a uni pin fine liner 0.05 
and I added molotow white to the polka dots on her dress

The Paper Shelter is offering the one lucky winner a $30 Gift Voucher if 
you play along using one of their products, or if you're playing along without 
using The Paper Shelter, you can still win 3 of their gorgeous images, so be sure 
to pop on over to the The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to see what my fab 
teamies have created to help inspire you.....we would LOVE you to join us and 
play along :)
