Colour Create meets Friday Sketchers.....

Good morning everyone!

Well i think I'm too late for the Colour Create Challenge; Hot Pink, Dusty Pink and Ice Chocolate, even though I made this card with the theme in mind. I have just about made it for the Friday Sketchers Challenge this week though where there is a brilliant sketch by the lovely Claudia which was great fun to work with. I've used another of the wonderful stamps by A Passion for Stamps but have only inked the top part of this gorgeous couple and have just coloured tiny bits of the image. The idea was to create a bit of a vintage look by distressing with Distress Ink to age the card. Those scrumptious Prima flowers were sent to me in a RAK by my fantabulous matey Jo - thank you so much matey...... I have to tell you there was a lot of stroking going on with these beauties before I could finally part with them on a card! Even then it was a definite case of shall I use one or two, lol!!!

Papers: Basic Grey
Image: A Passion For Stamps
Hearts: Aud Design
Colouring: Distress Inks/Koh Pencils
Flowers: Prima
Sentiment: Tim Holtz

I hope you all have a nice day today...... I'm off to work now but I really would rather be chilling at home!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx
