Crafting When We Can Challenges 117 - Birthday

Over on CWWCC we have a wonderful new sponsor Nikki Burnette

Hello! My name is Nikki Burnette and I am a fantasy artist. I paint all sorts of fantastical creatures in watercolor. Fantasy art is where my heart lies. I love being able to escape the reality of our world for even just a few hours and enter a new fantasy realm where witches play tricks on Halloween Night, fairies fly around the sweet smelling rosebuds, and mermaids swim gracefully through the water with their dolphin friends. I sell my original paintings as well as a wide range of different products that I create myself in my studio.

Prize: 3 images from the store

Theme: Birthday
It could be a Birthday card, scrapbook page of a Birthday, Birthday book etc

I used the very pretty Cadence on my card. She was a pleasure to colour in. I fussy cut her with scissors as I couldn't get my scan n cut to recognise the outline and I couldn't be bothered to get out the acetate and redraw the outline. I used my Spectum Noir pencils and blending solution. I haven't used them for a while, I put them somewhere safe and couldn't find them. I found them when I was looking for something else I put in a safe place and still haven't found. I choose really safe places (or I have a really bad memory). I used my scan n cut to cut the mats and create the faux stitching and a sizzix texturz plate to emboss the mats.

You still have until Saturday 30th to enter our challenge so hop over and see the wonderful inspiration from our talented DT.
