Hello folks and many, many thanks for stopping by. Please leave a trace so I can return the favour, its crazy how much lovely comments (or bad ones!) mean to us weird & wonderful bloggers.
My card for today was created with a number of challenges in mind.
Dawny P's sketch over at Paper Take Weekly its a great sketch and I enjoyed working from it, its definitely one of those sketches you can use over and over and be different every time.
Secondly, over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers they gave us a 'heads up' that their challenge was going to be 'Glitter' so I knew that whatever image I used on this sketch it was gonna get glittered to within an inch of its life! It was very difficult to take a photo that showed the glitter up and when I finally did I had to compromise other things (this pic does nothing for my colouring skills - not that I have many) its taken slightly at an angle which kinda shows more flaws in your blending!.
I knew from the beginning that the image I used on this card would be an unused, stashed and an almost forgotten one, as it was designed with an Oldie But A Goodie challenge at the front of my mind. Their theme is 'Fairies, Mermaids, Dragons or any other Magical Being'. This will always be my favourite challenge as it was the first (and only!) challenge I have ever won.
The Stamp is Magnolia, the papers DCWV from their Glitter Stack, the colouring Copics, the sentiment LOTV, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft, I have tried to open them up to look like water lillies and the whole thing is distressed with Antique Linen distress ink.
