I think this is my new favourite card, just looking at it makes me happy! So thanks Donna for setting the challenge of 'one for the girls' over at Secret Crafter and thanks Heather at Truly Scrumptious for the fab sketch and extra twist to use at least three stamps. Both Donna and Heather have brilliant blogs so take a look.
I used Dahlia from the Greetings Farm and shaded her with a mix of Copics and ProMarkers and...I braved it and added just a couple of highlights with an Inkssentials pen - was nervous to use it in case I bodged it after spending all that time getting the colouring right!
Lots of glitter gems to add sparkle and fabulous papers from Pink Petticoat. I have actually stamped seven images - six of which are flowers. I cut them all out and added instead of using pre-made or punched flowers.
Ooooh how exciting, I've just spotted I won last week's challenge at Creative Card Crew - wow thanks, I'm going to be the proud owner of some Fairy Doodles stamps from Crafty Addicts now - yey!
Well we've discovered the wasps nest in the garden is actually a bees nest, bad luck to hubby James for finding out by getting stung under his eye last night just walking from his van to the house. The little blighter flew under his glasses - ouch. We treated him quickly and the swelling went down within an hour or two. So today I'm making some phone calls and arranging for a bee keeper to come round ASAP and get rid of it and then Zac can play in the garden and I can hang my washing out again if it stays bright for much longer.
