PAPERTAKE WEEKLY CHALLENGE 28 07 09




Good morning everyone, what a lovely day it is today, hopefully it will remain lovely and sunny all day. I have one post today, and this is a card for Papertake Weekly Challenge, a wonderful Sketch. I have used a stamp from Elizabeth Bell which is available from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, and this cutie is called Young Alexa. The image has been coloured with a combination of Sakura Gel Pens, and Art-Kure WC brushes, and the layered on green card. A bigger piece of turquiose card was cut and the two sides run through a "Ribbon Threader" Fiskars paper punch. Blue ribbon has been threaded through the holes, and this then layered on yellow card. A strip of the same yellow card has also been run through a Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" Embossing Folder. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad called Urban Prairie, and to finish the card off, a stamped sentiment, some gold gems, and paper flower with gem brads from my craft stash. Thanks for stopping by, and hope you have enjoyed your visit. Have a lovely day and keep on Crafting!

Hi Dear this is simply stunning what a wonderful image, so beautifully coloured, can I ask you when you ordered your stamps from Susanne I ordered mine on the 16th July and still have not received them and as SDusannes service is always so good I am getting a bit worried now,
