SCSC- DT Card + Other Challenges!


This weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has been set by the lovely Jill and this weeks theme is a fab sketch.

I have used my new Paper Cd from Bearly My Designs and matted onto Bazzill cardstock. The stamps are all from High Hopes and have been coloured with a collection of Derwent Coloursoft Pencils, Copics and H20's. The flowers are Prima and have added Liquid Pearls to the centre. The ribbon and rub on from stash. I've cut the dies out using my MM Slice (noteworthy), this is still my favourite die cut machine and cant wait for the new cartridges which I believe are to be released soon. Would be great if you could play along with us this week and remember you will be entered into the monthly draw for a voucher to spend in The Secret Crafter Shop.
Now I dont usually do this with DT cards, but this one by chance also fits in with Card Cute Thursday (Spring), Daring Cardmaker (Frogs or Fish), just pure luck on this one, and Rainbow Lady (Make a Scene). Well I have a princess sitting on a mushroom amongst the flowers with a pair of cheerful frogs, suppose that would count as a scene. lol and last but not least, Stamp Challenge (3D). Not sure how clear you can see, but the princess has been mounted using foam pads to add dimension.

I must say big thanks to all my followers, I've gained another dozen or so recently and am thrilled. Its been a busy and exciting week for me. They say all good things must come to an end though. Zoe has had a temp of 102 and Daniel seems to have picked up a stomach bug so didn't get the chance to craft yesterday. Have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog!
