Swirls Challenge at Crafts and Me

Hey, hey, hey!

This week it is the Dynamite digi team`s turn to set the challenge. And it is the lovely Karina that has chosen the theme. I looooove swirls! Don`t you? I think they make a wonderful embellishment on a creation. The only thing i miss, is having a die-cutting system with the possibility to make swirls. Now i have to handdraw and cut them myself and it takes forever, therefor i don`t use them too often.

Well, anyway...the girls have really made some stunning creations this time. It really is amazing to see their colouring skills. They are soooo talented and i am sure if you pop by their personal blogs and leave them some sugar, they don`t get sad about it, lol.

Today i want to showcase one of the brand new digis created by the amazingly talented Sara Burrier. I truly loooove these new digis. If you visit the Crafts and Me store you can se all the new digis. If you don`t visit you really are missing out on some true masterpieces. Need i say more?

The name of this royal beauty is Natalie (i think she looks royal, lol) and you can find her here.

These are the colours i used to colour her up:
Skin: vanilla, saffron, blush and oatmeal
Hair: Walnut, terracotta, spice, honeycomb and oatmeal
Dress and mask: Royal blue and midnight blue

The flower was white to begin with but i used my ProMarker (Royal blue) to colour it so that it matched the rest. I also gave it some stickles to make it sparkle a bit.

This butterfly is actually some left over candle decoration from my wedding last year. I thought it fit perfectly with the colour theme i had chosen for my card.

I hope my creation gets your creating juices flowing, so hop on over to the Crafts and Me challenge blog and join in on the fun.

Superfint kort du har lavet! Det motiv kan jeg rigtig godt lide. Jeg har swirl dies til min bigshot, både fra Spellbinders og Marianne design - så det kan man sagtens få... man kan også købe færdige swirl i forskellige udgaver, så mulighederne er mange.
