The Paper Players #110, Colour Throwdown #206 & Crafty Catz #147

Well, it is certainly past my bedtime and considering I was up with the Roosters and Chooks this morning at 5.30am, I am a little weary lol.

I just wanted to quickly share a card with you that I am entering into 3 challenges.

The Sketch for this card came from The Paper Players
The Colour Combo came from Colour Throwdown
The Ribbon and Bow is to participate in the challenge over at Crafty Catz

I decided to give my faux stitching another whirl. I'm actually quite happy with how this turned out. I used my Certainly Celery marker and did the stitches freehand. A little crooked here and there but that's how my actual sewing would turn out anyway ;)

I had to use my Apothecary set again. It's such a beautiful collection. I then used my Framelit Label Dies to cut the stamp out which was coloured with Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. I didn't have Cameo Coral so I tried to use the closest that I had which to me was Melon Mambo (used for the sentiment). Once I finished this card, I realised I just couldn't cope without my Stamp-a-ma-jig. What a saviour! I hope I have done the Sketch and Colour Combo justice and I also hope there is enough Ribbon and Bow(s).

Here is the inspiration for these wonderful challenges

Thanks so much for looking xx

  3. I honestly don't know how I used to craft without my stamp-a-ma-jig! I always use it now. Love the papers behind that marvellous Apothecary Art frame.
