Delicious Doodles Double

Good afternoon. My lovely friend Bettina let me know about the DT call over at Delicious Doodles and I thought I would give it a try out, so I purchased some of these gorgeous images and made two completely different cards for the DT call.

This first card uses the gorgeous Blossom and I thought I would go with my girly pink and aqua colour combo on this one.


And my second card called to my gothic side. I used Gothic Fairy on this one and lots of dark and creepy bits! 

Both completely different, but I love them both! 

Little bit about me: I am a primary school teacher here in the UK, living with my boyfriend of just over 20 years and our spoilt little cat Miss Tallulah Zazzles (Not my name pick!). I started card making about 10 years ago when I was hunting for something to do during the school summer holidays. I started off with a cheap set from eBay containing some Sizzix die cuts and card blanks. Oh those first cards were hideous, but that was probably the best £5 I have ever spent as it completely opened me up to a whole new creative side I didn't know I had. 

I colour most of my images with Copics, but once in a blue moon do dig out my Distress Ink markers for a bit of watercolouring with them. I generally make cards, but have begun to dabble in mixed media a little bit, making some canvasses and other 3D projects. 

These cards are also for
