Cute Card Thursday May Guest DT Fourth Make

Hey Everyone, another card for you today and today it is my guest DT make for Cute Card Thursday which this week is all about:

No Designer Papers!

Fun one for me this week because like a lot of us I’m in love with my Designer Papers so it was fun to break the pattern (pardon the pun) and make my own papers for this challenge – hope you like them!

To make my backing paper I’ve used stamping, masking and a watercolour wash.

The image is from Stamping Bella and has been coloured with my favourite PrismaColor pencils with Sansodor blending so I thought I would enter the card into the Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge which is ‘Pencils’.

The heart I used blending inks and stamping with {Ippity} stamps finished with some yummy lace ribbon.

Right that is all from me today.

Have a lovely day.

Colouring – PrismaColor Pencils; Sansodor

    This is one fabulous card Kim. Practical Scrappers has a fabric, felt or tulle challenge. I think that lace qualifies, hope to see you enter this, it is just FAB!
