I'm still here.....

Where has the week gone, I think I'm turning into a weekend crafter!!!! I've been making a few things that I can't show you just yet and today I have spent ages doing my first tutorial. Although when you see it, you will probably think it just took me ten minutes to cobble together!!... never mind, it is my first one and we all have to start somewhere!!!

My tutorial is something to do with my DT creation for tomorrow's Stamptacular challenge, so pop back tomorrow and take a look if you can!

Onto my card. This is for two challenges, Dutch Dare Challenge 44 is to use your favourite things - this is my favourite SK stamp, and Stamp Something has a theme of yellow, green and blue - they are all in there with a bit of pink too!!!

I coloured the SK image with distress inks and the papers are from Laura Ashley. I love these papers, but I'm not too sure about this card, I think it looks a bit washed out. All the embellishments are from my stash and I used a fiskars 4 in 1 punch for the corners.

Card/Paper: White, pink, green card, Laura Ashley - Contemporary
Stamp: Sarah Kay - Spring Blossoms
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, walnut stain, faded jeans, worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, weathered wood, peeled paint and black soot
Embellishments: Primas, roses, ribbon and jewels
Tools: Water brush, fiskars 4 in 1 corner punch
Thanks for looking x
