Anything but a Square..........................

Hello there!!!

Well this weeks challenge is actually quite coincidental. For the launch of the gorgeous 'Winston Collection' I made some samples for the Create and Craft show and I just happened to use shaped card blanks. So I decided to share the details of one of the samples I made for the show.

I used the image of Winston reading the paper in his cozy chair and coloured it with my Graph'It Markers.

The markers I used are as follows:

Winston:  9400, 9401, 9402, 9403, 9404, 9405.  4120, 4145, 4150, 4170, 3120
Chair:  5140, 6180

I opted to do the textured effect so his fur looks like actual fur and was quite pleased by how this turned out. He is just so much fun to colour!

The embellishments are all from the collection as are the papers. I chose to distress the edges of the papers and added some grosgrain ribbon.

For the finishing touches I added some glaze to the glasses he is wearing and also to the glasses embellishment. Some perfect pearls in bronze and job done.

I hope you like my shaped card and don't forget to go to the main blog and see the rest of the design teams inspiration.  We love when you join in and I can't wait to see your fab designs!

See you soon!
