If the answer's yes then what are you waiting for! DT CALL currently going on at SUNDAYS WITH CRISSY.
As I've said in my previous posts I would love the opportunity to be part of this talented design team and who wouldn't want to be able to use Chrissy's images - I for one do better work when using stamps that inspire me. I am finding that I want to push my boundaries and aim higher to achieve cards I'm really proud of. Being fairly new to Card Crafting everything I do is fresh and new which is one of the wonderful things about crafting, there is always more techniques to try and always skills to improve on.
After spending nearly 3 hours trying to get my sewing machine to work (bobbin threading) last night - that's what happens when you haven't used your machine for over 4 years! Decided to use this technique again before putting machine away.
Thought I'd try colouring dark skin for this project which I find extremely hard to do! I thought I'd cracked it once but forgot what colours I used and have never hit upon the combo since! I went for the pinky browns for Maya's skin tone which I think gives a softer look.
In my eagerness to get myself noticed and hopefully be picked to join Chrissy's team I have been trying lots of different techniques and really pushing the boat out so if you score points for effort then I'm way up there!
To date I have attempted reptile skin and a lighter africian skin tone which has definitely stretched me as I found both quite difficult to do but being determined I persevered. Machine sewing which was a biggie for me as I haven't used my sewing machine for several years and a bit more layering than I'm used too. I've also changed the way I do things by finding the papers I want to use first instead of colouring image and then looking for papers that will match! I've had a go at dying ribbon with distressing inks which is a technique used on this card.
