Didn't start out that way, but if you look at my sidebar, I have so many challenges and like to play in my fair share of them. Never new when I started that my blogging would be so addictive but its a good way to get creative and if it puts a smile on someones face, then thats good too!
I have a pile of at least 50-60 new stamps and its really hard trying to decide which one I want to use 1st as they are all so scrummy. So I looked through my challenge list to find a sketch to start. Everybody Art has a gorgeous sketch that appealed so that was the basis of my card. Next I used papers from Basic Grey and their challenge this week is texture. Stamp Challenge is a Spring challenge so a pretty fitting card for all. The papers used are BG Sugared and have coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Sansodor. Its only the 2nd time I've used these pencils and I really like them, feel softer than Prisma's. The pink pin and green border I got from ebay, rest is from stash. Leaves punched with L-Em punch.
I used my Tapestry stamps which have not surfaced for a very long time, but wanted to add a border round the image. Inked these up with ColorBox Pigment Pads. Sorry its such a long post, I like to expain how a card is put together and sometimes refer back to it myself. Think its the first time in a very long time that I have done 2 posts in 1 day. Mojo must be flowing. My dining table is so, so messy. Think I need to have a tidy before hubby gets home but will only get it out again later as I'm gonna make another card. Have a good evening. Take Care!
EDITED POST - I have just removed alot of elements off my side bar as I know some have been having problems accessing my blog. Hope this helps.....................
