Our first Desert Islands Crafts Challenge

Its time for the very first challenge over at Desert Islands Crafts Challenge!

Our fearless Captain Suzi has given us our first itinerary for this challenge:

My Desert Island Itinerary
1)Stitching & Piercing
2)Pearls & Gems
4)Die Cuts
5)Sparkle - Glitter etc
6) Ribbon & Flowers
7) A Hand Coloured Image - rubber or digi stamp, coloured with your fave medium
8)Theme - Mystical & Fantasy Creatures
9) Colour Scheme - Bright Pink & Black
10) Colour Scheme - Rainbow Colours

You must use at least 5 items from the Itinerary, the rest is up to you :)

From the itinerary that Suzi gave us I chose 6 of the items:

A digital image colored with copics

Ribbons and flowers

Die cuts

Pearls and gems

Sparkle & Glitter

Mystical & Fantasy

You could actually say that I used the rainbow color scheme as well…if you look closely at the hair it’s a nice reddish shade, and the inside of the flower is yellow…so that hits all but orange!

I used Fairy Lily from Pink Cat Studio for my image. I purchased her a couple of years back and she has been sorely unused for awhile. Lily was colored with copics to match the fun bright colors from the Bo Bunny Peacock paper collection. After cutting her her, I popped her up on some yummy double dot Bo Bunny cardstock cut with Labels 10 Nestabilties.

The sentiment is also from Pink Cat Studio.

Do you like the funky little purple viney things? I picked those up at Michael’s in various bright colors during Christmas…I cut them apart and thought they would make fun card embellishments! The vine are tied up with a polka dot organdy bow then adhered to the center of a couple of flowers from my stash.

The card was completed with some Lime Green and Waterfall stickles and pearl accents.
