I while ago, I got an email from Tracy & Zoe from Make It Crafty, asking if I would like to be their guest designer in Septhemer
A bit scary, since there’s a lot of amazing artists on their DT, but I couldn’t resist trying, since there’s so many beautiful items in the Make It Crafty range
Thank you so much, Tracy & Zoe (and the rest of the DT) for having me as your guest – I’m so honored to get this opportunity!
I was so lucky to get two awesome images from Make It Crafty to work with, called “Geeky Love” & “Tree of Love“.
I masked the images together to make a scene, and coloured it with Distress Markers.
I made a Map Card suitable for a (young) couple in love, containing some “Mini Love Hearts” (sweet candy) with a cute tag on inside
