Sweet Pea Alice!

Aren't these stamps just gorgeous. I jut loved colouring this stamp in. I went with Copics. Not often I don't leave white gaps. The papers are a mix and flowers from stash. Don't know who the sentiment is by but have used a label punch and gone round the edges with a black chalk ink pad. The papers have also been distressed with my MM tool. My heart was a MS punch. I then covered it with Rock Candy Distress Crackle and added a fine Glitter then used my heat gun to dry. Also added a little glaze on the flowers and her hairband but don't think this has been picked up. Stickles on the flowers and leaves.

Here are a few challenges that my card fits into;

Oh Alice - Twinkle Twinkle
Everybody Art - Birthday
Stampavie & More - Sparkling
Pollycraft - Pinkalicious
Spoonful of Sugar - Animal Crackers
A Pocket full of Posies - One for the Girls
SweetPea Stamp Challenge - Earth, Wind & Fire
Ooh La La - Simply Summer
Paper Sundaes - Birthday Card
Magical Crafts - Flower Power
Crafts & Me - Birthdays
Alys Sunday Challenge - Flower Power

Been busy sitting in the garden over the last few days but a bit more cloudy now. We've even escaped the rain though the flowers are needing a lot of water. So if the sun aint shining then I'll be a crafting!!

Thanks for looking
