GDT Card........Love Has Gone

Hello peeps how are you all today? Up here along the North Sea coast its very miserable & still blooming windows need washing & so does my car but I cant seem to get a dry day grrrrrr!!!
Anyway onto my card that I did yesterday. A few weeks ago I was chosen as 'Most Wanted' over at My partner in crafting crime, when you are chosen you are then asked to be GDT for a fortnight.....well I couldn't refuse could I? That would be rude!!!
There theme this week is 'Black, White & 1 Other' I went for beige as my other colour cus then I thought it would count for skin tones as well.... As you know a few weeks ago I brought some Sweet Pea stamps well this is another 1 of those that I've coloured for this card..............
This is 'Love Has Gone' & is by the ever talented Ching-Chou Kuik, this is a stamp I have been after for a few months but everytime I went over to shop for her she would be out of stock.... However a couple of weeks ago I saw her online at Crafts & Me & had to nab her straight away....tho I had to get her some friends so she wouldn't be lonely lol.....but she is worth it lol.

Obviously she needed an easel card to sit on......they will always be my fave lol. This is the bottom. The sentiment is a digi image that I printed out on my lappy....will put the links on at the end for you. All the papers & card have had their edges inked with a little bit of 'Black Soot' distress ink. The main backing papers are flocked which is just gorgeous IRL!!

Somewhere for you to write your message which was cut out using a nestie & the bigboy lol (bigshot).
All the papers went for a run throught the sewing machine to get themselves smartened up & trim lol.

The cream flowers have been inked with 'Dune' Cats Eye Ink....totally forgot I had these lol. Scrolls were cut out using my bigboy again lol.

Here is a close-up of this beautiful image. She is coloured with Promarkers & Prisma's & I've added Stardust Stickles to her wings.

Materials Used & Links....
Papers 'La Creme Stack' DCWV - Crafty Emma's Store
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Sentiment (digi download) - Whimsy
Black Velvet Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
MS punch, pearls & Quikcutz Die & stickles all from stash.

Well thats it from me why not pop over to the challenge blog & have a go at this challenge.
Thank you all for stopping by you are all absolutely fantastic.
Huge huggles to everyone
