Some of my Favourite Things!

Hi everyone, my crafting time has been cut short lately and I have been making some creations that I can't show you just yet, but I have managed to squeeze in this card for three challenges. Secret Crafter Challenge 24 is to use your favourite colour... now I love many colour combos like black and white for one, and I'm very fond of pink!! but I do love red also and I never use it enough on my cards so my favourite colour of the moment is red and I'm quite please with how this card turned out. The second challenge I'm entering it for is Stamp Something where the theme is spring and finally Charisma Cardz Challenge 12 which is favourite things and this is my favourite SK stamp.

The SK stamp has been coloured with distress inks and the papers are basic grey. I have kept the card nice and simple as I think the image and the papers are so pretty. I have embossed the centre panel and my only embellishments are the primas and jewels.


For the inside I have used the scraps of BG paper and I partially stamped the SK image and coloured it as per the front.

I have used a fiskars corner punch to add some detail to the corners. It also embosses, but unfortunately you can't really see it in the image.

The poem I found on the internet and it has been cut out with my scalloped circle nesties.

Supplies
Card/Paper: Red and white card, Basic Grey - Sugared
Stamp: Sarah Kay - Spring Blossoms
Colouring: Distress inks - fired brick, tattered rose, weathered wood, black soot, peeled paint, and walnut stain.
Embellishments: Primas, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, border embossing folder - frills range, fiskars corner punch, scalloped scissors, water brush
Thanks for looking x
