Papertake Weekly Challenge.......


Hello,

I hope you are are well and having a good start to your week.

Today is a very special day for me as I have the absolute honour of being the guest for this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge. Thank you so very much girls for inviting me I am thrilled to join you all, and Dawn it was a such a pleasure to use your wonderful sketch I am so going to use this again!

Here is Dawn's fabulous sketch.


I have coloured my image with distress inks. The background is distressed with tattered rose. I have masked this sweet Tilda so that she is sitting on the strawberry. The Magnolia's are from the Summer Lazy Days collection. That beautiful lace is from the lovely Bev thank you so much sweetie I love it! The heart is die cut using the cuttlebug.


Well, thank you so very much for looking and please do go and check out the cards made by the uber talented Papertake Weekly dt they are just amazing! Thank you so much Dawn and girls for this wonderful opportunity!

I would like to say a huge big, big, thank you for all your comments. I am so very grateful for all your support from the bottom of my heart.

love

Oh my Kim, I enjoyed clicking on this to get a close up look at your beautiful coloring job and to see all the little pieces you added, like the tiny pearls on that flouish! Just stunning! I love, love, love all the distressing on here! Did you stamp and color those strawberries on the background paper, or was that part of the paper you used? You are the master indeed! I have collected 10 of the distressing inks now, so I have to sit down and start playing with them. I'll use your site as my standard to strive for. I really enjoy coming to visit here:)))
