Tiddly Inks Image - and a few challenge Entries

Well hello bloggers, welcome to the Paper Playground- whether you've been here before or are brand new to my blog.

I'd like to welcome any new followers - and hope to get to know you soon - feel free to e-mail any time and say hi!!!

This card isn't for anyone in particular at the moment - so will go into my box - either for sale or for emergency use... I usually make an individual card for my friends or family and rarely get to make a card that isn't already destined for someone - but I really wanted to colour this image up and use it on a card... Its such a sweet image, drawn by the very talented Christy who is the owner of Tiddly Inks Digitals... Christy also designs stamps for stamping Bella.  Check out her blog and her Paper Craft Planet group. 

Anyway, without further ado, here is the card in question:


Now, I have to tell you that I must have taken a dozen photos of this card - and am still not happy - but seeing as this is just about the best of the bunch - you can understand why I wasn't pleased.  I will try and get another pic during daylight hours and will edit with a better one if I can.

Anyway, I haven't taken part in any challenges for a while, so I started by writing a list of the criteria set by each challenge blog, then looked at which I would be able to incorporate into this card. 

Tiddly Inks: Challenge #8 - Baby of Mine (using image "carry me to the moon")

A Spoonfull of Sugar: Challenge 107 - Floral Delights - prima flowers

Cupcake Crafting:  Challenge 94 - Dazzle Us - I used holographic fine glitter on the stars on the image and on the flowers and also used miri board to mat the image and scalloped circles behind the image and sentiment.

Frosted Designs:  Buttons - flower centres

Secret Saturday Crafters: Challenge #86 - Sketch

Creative Inspirations: Challenge #64 - Babies

Additional details
DP: Pink Petticoat
Flowers: Prima
Buttons: Woodware
Ribbon: stash
Image: Tiddly Inks Digitals - coloured with Promarkers
Nestie circles and scalloped circles used to cut image and sentiment (computer generated)

Apologies if this post doesn't make grammatical sense at all - or seems all over the place... I am just so t-i-r-e-d and need sleep - which I am lacking big style... I feel yet ANOTHER phone call to the docs coming on.

Thanks for dropping by - please come back again

hugs, Paula x x x

  10. Hi Paula, Beautiful card :-) is that the one I spied yesterday? I know what you mean about the card, it looks fine to us, but sometimes the colours don't come true so may look a little dull. I find if I take them outside they're much better also when I do take them indoors I find they're better without the flash and standing upright near a window.
    Hope you have a good day ;-)
    Hugs Anne xxxx

  15. You know, until I saw your card, I never knew that the carriage was a moon... LOL! I kept wondering why there was a little part sticking up under the handle... LOL! Totally opens up new ideas for this image... ;) I really like that you used metallic paper for this... You know, sunlight is the best light for photography...
