Sketch and Stash Challenge #1


Hello,

Well, I have had the most frustrating time of it! No electricity for 6 hours not funny. Then I finished my card and thought you know, I think I will add some swirls in brown. Not a good idea as I was adding said swirls. I dropped my stamp mid inking right in the middle of my card! I thought I might cry and then stormed out of my room. So today I had to start again but minus swirls. So here it is my card for the new challenge Sketch and Stash . I was thrilled to have won last weeks blog candy on offer WOJ Willow with umbrella. Which Becky sent with the most sweetest card. Thank you Becky. So as this challenge is all about using new or never used stash this was the perfect time for me to use my brand new stamp. I have coloured with distress inks. I have added some blue glitter pen for the raindrops. I glimmer misted my flowers. The amazingly talented Aud showed us her beautiful pin creations. So I had a go at making my own which was great fun. Thank you so much Aud for your wonderful inspiration.

Thank you so much for looking.

love kim xxx
