Stamp Something Challenge


Morning folks... well I hope that you haven't all fainted in disbelief at the fact I've actually managed to do a challenge card... lol... I know it's been so long that even I can't remember the last time I joined in the fun with any challenge and did I have great fun with this one over at Stamp Something.
First time back for a while so I decided to go with some nice bright colours in the hopes that they help blow the yucky grey skies away and bring some sunshine our way.
I started out with a white base card, onto which I layered a piece of textured cardstock which I had distressed around the edges. Next up I inked around the edges of some blue cardstock and layered onto some white card, then onto the right hand side of the base card. Then some more blue paper inked around the edge, this time layered onto pink cardstock and attached to the bottom of the base card. Some pretty paper was then cut and layered onto some blue cardstock, inked around the edge, layered onto a strip of white card and placed onto the right hand side of the card. Cut a large scalloped circled from pink cardstock, a plain circle from my pretty paper then another plain circle from basic white cardstock. Inked around the edges of the two plain circles and stamped my image onto the plain white one. Water coloured my image then layered all my circles together and mounted onto the base card using foam pads. To finish off I used a combination of Prima e-line flowers and paper roses along with a sentiment.
Image coloured using the following:
Sakura Metallic # 551
Sakura Stardust # 709, #719, #736, #749
Sakura Moonlight #403, #421, #427
Koi water brush
Image - Sugar Nellie
Dovecraft textured cardstock
Paper - Crafts House 'Cupcakes - Mini Fancies'
Nestabilities
Prima e-line flowers (Fuschia)
Paper roses
Craftwork Cards sentiment
Hope you're all having a fab bank holiday weekend and getting up to lots of mischief in your craft rooms... perhaps we should all be grateful that the weather isn't so good... great excuse to lock ourselves indoors and play.. lol.
Toodles for now
