Creative Inspirations Challenge 1

Just a quick post from me today... my parents arrived yesterday for a fortnight and of course after three weeks of glorious weather, it is raining. I think they brought the good old British weather with them!!!

There is a fabulous new blog that has started called Creative Inspirations and their first challenge is to follow a sketch.

The stamp is WOJ and it is coloured with distress inks. The papers are papermania and I have used my d'vine swirl embossing folder for the pink panel.

Card/Paper: White, blue and pink card, papermania - venetian skies
Stamp: WOJ - Willow with cookies
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, worn lipstick, faded jeans, fired brick, vintage photo, walnut stain and broken china.
Embellishments: Primas, jewels, pearl brads, spacer, charm
Tools: Cuttlebug, scalloped scissors, d'vine swirl embossing folder, water brush

Also, I have received these two blog awards from Crafting Joanne and Hello Gorgeous. Thanks ladies, I really appreciate them!

On a final note, I would like to remind you all that Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog begins on Sunday 5th April. Please come and join in, the DT are really looking forward to it and we can't wait to see you there! Thanks for looking x
