Make it count

Good morning sweet friends!

The vacation is soon coming to an end and we are going home on saturday. I really don`t look forward to a twelve hour drive with a little one that absolutely doesn`t like to be tied up in the back of a car. I am really afraid that this trip is going to be much longer than twelve hours this time....

Before we left for our holiday i stressed with finishing all the cards for the different DTs i`m on. I couldn`t leave my laptop at home so i have it with me to be able to write my posts, lol. But i have promised my hubby that i would leave my computer alone most of the time, lol. So i have not done so much bloghopping as i usually do, lol.

Well...enough boring chit-chat, lol. Let`s get down to buisness. This week is the Dynamite Digi Team`s turn to host the challenge over at Crafts and Me. And it is our fabulous Rose that has set the challenge. It`s her first time, as a member of our DT and i think she has done a fantastic job. Well done, hunny!! The challenge this time is MAKE IT COUNT. You have to put a number somewhere on your creation. It can be anything with numbers on it. (Paper, chippies, sentiments and so on...what ever you feel like)


Our fabulous sponsor this week is:
MEMORY BOX


These are the gorgeous dies you can win:





I have a niese that turns 14 in a couple of months so i made this card for her. The image i used is called Porchini and is one of the brand new digis from one of my fav artists...Sara Burrier. I only used a partial image. I cut off her legs...lol, oh i`m so bad, hahaha....to show off her beautiful face better. I also coloured in a bright yellow background to surround her. I just love how it turned out.


I have actually managed to empty my Vanilla coloured ProMarker so i had to come up with an other colour combo for the skin. I visited one of my fav colouring artists, Debbi aka Wiccababe to get some inspiration. She is a designer for the Letraset company, which manufactures the ProMarkers. And she knows what there is to know about ProMarkers. Debbi has used the skin tones of Coral, Sunkissed pink and blush. I have just added the Tan for the shades. I was afraid that the skin might look too pink but it doesn`t look too bad. I obviously need to practise some more with this colour combo though, hahaha. Thanks for the inspiration, Debbi!


The colours i have used for the image are these:

Skin:
Coral, Sunkissed pink, Blush, Tan

Dress:
True blue, Powder blue, Arctic blue

Hair:
Caramel, Sandstone, Buttercup

Wings:
Pastel green, Blue pearl, Blossom

Background:
Pumpkin, Gold, Sunflower, Yellow




The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Mulberry Crafts. The metal corner embellies are also from WOC. The doily die in the back and the Decorative elegance die from Marianne Design is currently out of stock but will soon be available in the Crafts and Me store, right here and here.
