Secret Crafter DT Card/Stamptacular


A sunny saturday here and I'm back with my 1st DT card since my holiday. This weeks challenge over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has been set by the lovely Mandy and the theme is Brown and Turquoise. Wendy, the owner of the Secret Crafter Shop, kindly sent the DT some stamped images of the new Stampavie - Tina Wenke - I have used Sending Valentines and have now ordered this stamp for my collection. It has been coloured with SU Watercolour Crayons. I now have the full set and just love using these with the SU Blender Pen. I distressed the background and edged with Fluid Chalk Ink Pads. The papers are BG "Lime Rickey" except for the brown strip which is a scrap. Raffia Lace is from Bunny Zoes Crafts. MS Border and Butterfly punch and the rest from stash. Its so nice to be back crafting and I really enjoy my cardmaking. Do take a look at the other DT cards, lots of inspiration for you.

And do take a look at the Secret Crafter Shop. They are now taking pre-orders for the New Promarker Colours being launched in a few weeks and there is a special price atm if you wish to purchase the full set.

My card also fits into this weeks Stamptacular Challenge which is "Bearly Special"

I'm also having blogger issues today, cant access all blogs or challenges. Most are all OK but some I just cant get into. Mr Blogger sure likes to take his time!!!!

BTW, Bev has a free stamp up for grabs HERE

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doin......

The detailing on this make for a very special card. It is very interesting how you have used rectangular hole ribbon(?) to repeat the idea from the background papers. Nice job.
