New Year,New Inspiration!

A Very Happy New Year to you all
I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the guest designers for the challenges on Crafty Ann's challenge blog this month and this is my offering for the first challenge which is 'New Year, New Inspiration'

Ann's instructions were ' Be inspired by something new – new stash for Christmas, a new technique or a new idea you've picked up while blog hopping and tell us what the new bit is.
My new things were one of Ann's fabulous digital stamps, and two of her backing papers - all available from her shop; experimenting with subtle digital colouring in using PSP; and Card Candy (the eight pink circles which resemble brads). I also decoupaged the bird and added some extra flowers which I clipped from the original image.


  1. This is fabulous Ali, I have to confess to being in awe of your prowess with psp and I love how you've coloured this image and how you've used the extra blossoms - absolutely beautiful card.
