Crafts & Me DT Card

Good morning all my lovely friends how are you this morning? Well the weather report from the Northumbria Coast isssss.......dull, grey, dreary with mist coming in from the sea....yep its miserable again today just the same as yesterday.
Well I'm running a tad late this morning so I'm gonna get on with it.
Today is the new challenge over at Crafts & Me Challenges & there have been a few changes so grab a cuppa & a biccy & I'll tell you about them.
As from today 16th March we are going weekly.....yep no more fortnightly challenges you can come join us every single week. The Crafts & Me team are now 2 teams there is the original team with the 2 new additional girlies....we are the Rubbah Team.....(my hubby always laughs at that lol)
& now Teresa has teamed together some new fabulous talented girlies for the Digi Team as Teresa is releasing more digi images. So each week the teams will take it in turns to host the challenges, this week is the Rubbah Team. This is great news for you as its now twice the chance to win as of course there will be prizes every great is that...wooooo hooooo.
Right this week is my challenge & I chose photo inspiration for you all but I added an extra I would alos like to see some form of texture on your card as well, pop over here to look at the piccies. There are 2 & you can choose either one or both, the choice is yours & how brave you are lol.
Here is mine & I took inspiration from both piccies......

This is 'Pink Lighning' by the artist Jasmine Beckett-Griffith & is exclusive to Crafts & Me Store here.

She has been stamped onto smooth white card which you can get here.
She is of course coloured with Copics, sorry I forgot write down what I used & I'm one of these annoying people that puts a pen back in its placed once its been used but if I remember them I will put a list on.

Silver corners are from my stash as to is the lace & ribbon,

All papers are Prima which you can get here flowers & gems are from my stash.

Yes this is the bottom can you guess I made an easel card lol.

Yes I finally got around to doing a twisted easel these things are soooo easy & easier to photograph as well tbh as I always struggle with the easel cards but this was much easier.
I have to say I soooo enjoyed making this card & this stamp is on my favourite list she was brilliant to colour I just let my mind go & my fingers & pens
Well thats it from me but please pop over to see the rest of the girlies & give 'em some love cus the creations they have made are stunning they really are.
Hope you can join us this week over at Crafts & Me Challenges we all enjoy hopping around seeing your wonderful creations.
Thank you so much for stopping by I'm coming to hop by your blogs now to see all you wonderful peeps.

EDITED TO ADD; YAYYY I can get onto my dashboard again now.

Chrissy said...

What a drop dead gorgeous image, and you have coloured it perfectly...not that you ever couldn't.The colour combo is fabulous, very fresh.My first easel was a twisted, and they ARE easy, but LOOK blogger did that but it fixed itself. I clicked onto comments, then double clicked back, and it was back to mormal, so I cant help there.
