Sweet Pea Stampers DT Card

Good morning all you lovelies out there, how are you all this morning? Well its the last day I take my son Jake to school for 2 weeks today as from monday he has his work experience for 2 weeks so we got him a placement with the council doing carpentry/joinery which is what he wants to do when he leaves school. Its gonna be so strange taking him there, its also the same place as my eldest Ben did his plumbing pre-apprentice.
Anyway less of my babble. Well thank cruncjie its Friday as not only is it the weekend its also time for
Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge which this week is such an easy one which you will love...
Showers Of Flowers
See I told ya, now come on girls we all luuurrrvvvve flowers so we want to see them all on your sweet pea creations. I ordered some new stamps recently I know I havnt inked all of mine but these were a must & they came early last week. Remember my fave parts to colour is the face & hair....

This is 'Kiara' by Elaine Cox & she is available singly or on a sheet of all 4.....I got all 4 as there was no way I could only pick 1. Go over to Sweet Pea Stamps & take a look for yourself they really are beautiful.

The bottom of the card I used a new 'Faux Crochet' border die from Crafts & Me.
The frame around the image is a Spellbinders Frame from here these have a sale on a lot of dies at the mo so its worth checking out, I've saved quite a bit. I cut the frame out of A4 turquoise card & then smothered it in glitter.

This little beauty has of course been coloured with Copics.
YR0000 YR000 E00 E21
E50 E31 E35
B0000 B000 B32 B60 B45
R05 & a white gel for the white spots in her hair.

Inside has been decorated the same only the frame I have set straight inside.
The gorgeous paper is the new Websters Pages 'Trendsetter/Ladies & Gents' which I got from
Crafty Emma's. Also all the flowers except the large flat one are from Emma's too. The large one is from my stash.
Well thats it from me but please pop over to see what my talented DT sisters have made & show them a bit of love as they really are a talented bunch.
Looking forward to seeing your beautiful flowery sweet pea creations this fortnight.
Thank you for stopping by my lovelies I'm off to hop along to some blogs now before I have to do my DT work & house work.....not sure in which order yet lol.
Tatty bye for now my lovelies xoxoxox
Challenges I'm Entering.....

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Vicky - all I will say is - I want it now. The image is beautiful but you have coloured it perfectly and the rest of the card comes together so well. It's amazing how you like face and hair - I don't mind hair but I hate colouring faces. Aren't we the strangest of folks eh? I love that image though. It will have to go on my wish list. Take care and hugs to you all, Kym xxx
