Digistamp Boutique April giveaway - Olivia

Today I've made a card using a super cute little cat called Olivia from Digistamp Boutique.  She won't actually be released until next month, but you could win her, along with a £5 voucher, over at the Digistamp Boutique blog here.


I've coloured Olivia with promarkers, with some glamour dust on her flower.  The papers are some sparkly 'animal antics' ones from Dovecraft, teal card from Papermill Direct.  The flowers were based on a link I spotted on Dawny P's blog, and they're basically made using a a retro flower punch (mine's an x-cut one) and then snipping a wedge out of each petal with a pair of scallop scissors - cute aren't they?  I've also sprayed them with Crafter's Companion glitter spray, and added some button centres.  The little tag sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the pearls are from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I've been experimenting with my photo - decided to try a different background from my usual white.  What do you think - is it an improvement or not?

  2. Hi Lisa those papers are TDF and the image is so cute, it makes you go ahhhhhhhhhh, the fumes of that sparkle is wild I spray it and then go out of the room for a while, The background really suits the colour of the paper but I think the white really makes the card POP.

  21. Hello, that is just so sweet. Will have to have a go at making the flowers, I have a slight addiction to flowers as well as stamps - well lets just be honest and say most things papery! I tend to take most of my pics against a white background, unless the card is mostly white, as I feel it gives a sharper image - but then that's just me. Sarah
