Secret Crafter DT Card/Dutchdare Challenge


Hello everyone, its time for another Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. Time goes too fast for my liking. Kids been off for a fortnight and before I know it, they will all be back at school. I took the kids down to Dymchurch for the day yesterday. Its a nice seaside town, not too big and only 1/2hr from here. The weather was pretty good and we all love the 2p pushers in the arcades so they managed to empty my purse and more LOL.
Back to this weeks challenge, the them has been set by the lovely Jill and she has chosen a lovely sketch, my only problem was which stamp to use, I seem to have quite a collection of unused stash just piling up!! LOL. I have used a stamp from Motivet. I adore these cute characters and had so much fun colouring her in. I was quite experimental colourin her in this time, used CFopics, Prismas Pencils and Sansodor, H20's and SU Ink Pads and I masked and spritzed the background with Glimmer Mists. The papers are from the English Paper Company. Lace and flowers from stash and used a punch for the swirls.
Hope you can join in with this weeks challenge, remember you will be entered into the monthly prize draw which means more stash for you to play with.

My card also fits in with this weeks Dutchdare Challenge which is to add lace.
Take care and have a lovely weekend
