It is my fabby friend Tara's debut appearance as a DT member on Dotties World today so I thought I would join in with their challenge this week and give her my friendly support ! Her card is absolutely amazing and I am so thrilled for her. The challenge this week is "coffee and cream" with stripes or dots.
I also loved the sketch this week on Sketch Saturday and decided to join their challenge too.
After receiving my new Koh-i-noors last week I was so impressed that my eye started wandering in the direction of Prismacolors. I have 24 Koh's and 24 Derwent Coloursoft you see but 48 just isn't enough colours, is it ?!!! I ended up buying from this most fantastic chap on e-bay (cough, cough, splutter, splutter - says very quickly in a whisper), all 132 pencils !!! I cannot recommend this chap enough for his communication, service and after care as he explains all about them and even sent me links to various tutorials ! I ordered them on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning they were delivered by first class recorded delivery. If you are interested in purchasing any Prismas and want to know someone reliable, please email me and I'll send you his details.
Anyway, back to the card !
The base card is cream card from The Papermillshop.
The patterned paper is DCWV the Spring Glitter Pack.
The image is Charmed Cards Holly and Madison "Madison - So Chic" and she has been coloured with Prismas. I'm pleased with the results seeing as it is my first time although I need some practise with the outlines I think !
The sentiment is a Melissa Frances clear stamp sentiment embossed in white embossing powder. The ribbon is from my stash.
The roses were cream roses which I sprayed with "Coffee Shop" glimmer mist.
The flowers are by Hero Arts, the brads are BasicGrey and the leaves are a Sizzix die which Tara very kindly sent me for a present - thank you darlin mwah !
Hope to see you again soon !
