Good morning! Today is the start of Colour Challenge 12 over on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog

 Here is my card using the challenge colours. The stamps used are from the Sketchy Doodle/Landscape sets and the new Rustic Fragments and all colours are from the Distress range.
I stamped the large flower and then masked it off so that I could stamp the leaf design and make it look like it appears from behind the flower. Both stamps are from the Sketchy Doodle set. I water coloured with distress ink and added more colour over the top by colouring direct with the Distress markers. The background is a combination of two of the Rustic Fragment stamps and the corners were created stamping part of a flower design from the Landscape set, however there is a similar flower in the Doodle set so you don't really need both sets. Once I had finished stamping and colouring I brushed over some Crushed Olive and Antique Linen Distress ink.

Thanks for looking xx

Birthday Thanks

Thanks for stopping by. Today I have the second thank you card I made my daughter, so that she could give out for some birthday money received. 
Before I started stamping I masked off sections of the card with masking tape and then stamped with various stamps from Chocolate Baroque's, Rustic Fragment stamp set and then coloured with Distress Ink.
The butterflies are Spellbinders die cuts that I have over stamped with Abstract Fragments and then glued on a random selection of seed beads using Glossy Accents.
I finished the card off with the Clarity, Thank You sentiment, stamped at various places around the card.

See you soon! xx

Thank You

Hello, thanks for popping in. I have a little thank you card that I made for my daughter to give to her Aunt and Uncle after her recent birthday.
I have used a Clarity thank you stamp and one of Sheena Douglass' recent designs for the flower. I stamped the flower onto coated card and then coloured with alcohol pens. The base card was simply sprayed with purple and white spray inks and a quick pen doodle was added around the edges. There you have it, one very simple card.
Thank you for looking xx
