Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card

Hello my lovelies & its a very cold hello from here by the is it white. I've just got back from taking Jake to 6th form & everywhere is so icy, we've also had snow again............luckily the dual carriageway wasnt too bad.

Anyway its time for a new challenge over at Crafts & Me Challenges this week & of course its us Rockin' Rubbah Girls turn to set you the challenge & this week is super duper easy...............
RIBBON & LACE I know we ALL love our ribbons & lace.
Now this week the girls have all used the latest new rubber stamps that the boss sent I was ooohing & arghing over all them...........yes they are even drool worthy.
They are new stamps by the fabulous artist Zindy Nielsen, isn't she a beauty!!! Now us DT girls have had a laugh at our design creations this week as nearly all of us have used the same stamp lol..........pop on over to here to see how different though they all look & how totally gorgeous & talented are my teamies.

Both ribbon & lace were from my stash & the heart is from a MS punch. I've added white gesso to give it a shabby chic-ish look lol.

Of course I have done a multi pic for you ;0) If you click on it to make it larger you will see the gorgeous Heart & Key charms I tied together.

The flowers are 25mm Wild RoseRed Carnations, Cherry Blossoms, 10mm Deep Red Roses & Hip Rosebuds, I also added Doo-Hickey Leaf.

This image is called 'Winter Rose' & is made exclusively for Crafts & Me Stores. I have as always coloured her with my Copics, colours used are below....
Skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000
Lips & Rose - R59, R29, R17
Hair - E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
I stamped a sentiment on & added a gorgeous Prima Rose, although you cant see it very well here :0(
The gorgeous papers are Prima 'Divine' & I've inked the edges with Walnut DI, these papers are so pretty & perfect for a shabby chic kinda card.

Ingredients used...........
'Winter Rose' stamp by Zindy Nielsen - Crafts & Me Store
Flowers - WOC
Heart Charm - My Crafty Heart
Magnolia Swirl & Leaf dies - Bunny Zoes

Well thats it from me but please pop on over here to see my teamies creations & join in the fun we love seeing your creations :0)

Wow the snow is coming thick & fast now, Easter Bunny may freeze his fluffy little butt off this year :0(
Will try my best catch up with you all today, its a busy week as I'm decorating the living room & I wont let hubster do too much as his hand is still swollen & painful. Though he has had his plaster removed & the pins.
