Truly Scumptious Challenge #11

This weeks challenge at Truly Scrumptious is another sketch by the fabulous Sharon and the this week theme is to use only black, white plus one other colour (excluding skin & hair).




We are thrilled to welcome back the Cutting Cafe as our sponsor this week. The Cutting Cafe offers a wide variety of Printable Stamps and Templates; no more waiting on the mailman and no more trying to find space for rubber/clear stamps. The winner of this challenge will win 3 sets of their choice, and believe me there is a fabulous choice!!





I chose mushroom brown/beige as my third colour and the beautiful Maribel as my image. She needs to be stamped on shiny cardstock with archival ink. I decided to experiment and try lightly colouring the edges with Copic markers but think it would have been better using distress inks. i cut her out with nesties and then inked the edges with the Stempelglede grunge stamps which I also used to create the border down the left hand side which sadly hardly shows. The flowers are cut with the EK Success retro flower punch and ribbon threaded throught the larger one which is a technique shown on the fabulous Stamparctic blog. I finished the card with leaves cut with the Leone Em ash branch punch, ribbon and lace from my stash.


Papers : Prism cardstock, papers downloaded from Digital Scrapbook Art
Stamps : Stempelgede - Maribel & grunge set
Colouring mediums : Memento ink & Copic markers
Punches: EK Success Retro flower & Leone Em Ash Branch
Rest from stash

Now I'm off to clean my house - you wouldn't believe the mess one person can create just making one card!! I have viewers coming to look at the house so it's 'skates on'
Have a brilliant day and don't forget to keep your fingers crossed for me in hope that my viewers like my house and want to buy.
