And here I am with my first project as a DT for the Colour Crazy Challenge blog. I found the challenge blog quite a while ago and I loved to enter my projects there, since as you all know, most of my cards have colored images on them, colored with pencils. And now I am on the DT – I am so excited.
For this project, the sponsor is A Day for Daisies and the winner will receive a $8 voucher for the store. I received the digi Dandelions in a Mason Jar to create my inspiration project with.

Don’t these balls of fluff bring back many childhood memories? I printed the image out onto Strathmore Paint Pad paper and got out my Prismacolor colored pencils. I decided that I would color two of the flowers as full bloom dandelions in their beautiful yellow color. I also added a bit of grey to the jar to depict the glass and then cut the image out with a stitched tag die.

I cut a cardpanel of white cardstock and ran it through an embossing folder. I love the simple dot design. I adhered the tag to the panel with a brad and some double sided tape and then added craft foam behind the cardpanel before adding it to my cardbase. The cardpanel was then glued to a top folding cardbase. I completed the project with a simple hello die cut in black cardstock.
