Olive

I meant to make a card with this image last month for the DigiStamp Boutique's monthly competition, but time got away from me in the lead up to our holiday. So better late than never eh? Talking of late, I also used the challenge #60 sketch from  A Spoonful of Sugar, but again, I'm too late to enter that too :)

I also broke into some new stash that I bought a wee while back. If you remember, back to June, I took a wee trip out to Simply Create at Alford for their Sugar Nellie event and to see Judy doing her fab colouring demo's. Well, this fabulous 12x12 paper pad jumped into my basket and followed me home. Its from Panduro Hobby and its the Classic Tilda Papercraft Paper Stack, it has 25 sheets of double-sided paper and the quality is outstanding. Its not cheap, but its well worth the money.

 

I chose one of the sheets that had cameos on one side and white polka dots on pink on the other side, and chopped it in half to make a 6x6 card blank.

Image: Olive with Flowers by Sally-Ann Hancock @ DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers: warm grey 1-4; blossom, rose pink, cerise, apple, grass, terracotta, spice, apricot.

papers are all Tilda Papercraft Classic Paper Stack, plus grey core'dinations card. edges were distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Tool and the image card was inked with papermania ink. flowers were punched from same paper and card with EK Success retro flower punches them embossed and distressed. Buttons are papermania, pearls are Hero Arts, and the greeting as usual is daisy & Dandelion.
