Been a hectic week this week but I finally made time for some crafting - well thats if I don't count a scary tiger mask for my nephew, a fairy wand and bookmark for my daughter, a lightening bolt sword for my son (all for the Book Week at school)! Well today I am one year older and not much wiser hahaha!!!
Really enjoyed making this card with some new papers I treated myself to today (I am naughty cos I have LOADS and it was a want not a need).
This is one of my all time favourite stamps from Whiff of Joy, makes me feel all cosy and warm when I ink her up haha!! It is ages since I entered the challenges over on the Whiff of Joy challenge but this week there is a gorgeous colour combo of "coffee and cream" so I just had to have a go!
I have followed the lovely sketch by Karen over at One Stitch at a Time, I really enjoyed working with this sketch and it was perfect for the paper I used as there was no layering and this particular Victorian Classic paper from Paper Cellar looks great on its own, in fact the whole pad is beautiful!
I have coloured the image in promarkers (Satin, Cinnamon, Henna, Pastel Beige and Cocoa), the challenge this week over on Passion for Promarkers is Back to Nature and with all the flowers and the Hero Arts dandelion frame stamp which I have used behind Willow fits the bill!
I quite like the sepia look on the card and as it is all one colour I am entering it into the Crafty Creations Challenge which is all one colour and the Stampin' for the Weekend which is Monocromatic. It reminds me of the vintage photos which fits in with the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge of Back in Time.
The challenge over on Simon Says is Mothers Day/girly and with all these flowers it is defintely that!! The flowers are a selection from Hobby Craft but the fabric flowers I made following Bev's tutorial over on Whiff of Joy Inspirations and Tutorials Blog which is great for me as I don't have a sewing machine (even if I did I wouldn't be able to use it as I took Metal Work instead of sewing at school, made this choice after an absolute disaster making a pencil skirt that was so tight it bound my knees together and I could only walk by moving my legs from the knee down LOL).
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays have put a DT call out, check the details over on their blog and this weeks challenge is sparkle and shine!
The punched leaves meet the challenge at Quixotic Cards which is Leave it Out!!!
