It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

For my creation today I’m using the gorgeous image from The Paper Shelter called Rose and I’ve made a card with many many folds.

Here’s the front of the card showcasing the image.

And here’s a close up of the image.

My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with the following Copic Markers.

E11, E00, E000, R20, R30, E44, E43, E42, E41, R89, R85, R83, R81, BG75, BG72, BG70, BG96, BG93, BG90.

My image has been cut out using the Large & Small Classic Circle Nestabilities and then layered onto a Marianne Design Die.

Here’s a photo to the card with the image lifted.
