A new recipe at Cooking it up with Katie

Wow, thanks for all your fab creations for our last challenge at Cooking it Up with Katie, I hope you are going to join us again this week and see what you can cook up with our new recipe which is: punches, string and water!

We have a fantastic sponsor again with a great prize from Simply Betty Stamps. The DT were lucky enough to be able to have a play with a fab digi from Simply Betty. I fell in love with these quirky characters, and it was sooooo hard to pick but I chose 'Betty' and here is my card: 




The cardstock is from my stash (purple pearl and black glitter card) and I used my brayer and Big'n'Juicy Mountain Meadow inkpad to create the seaside background. The little bat is a rubber stamp from Stamp it Crazy.

I coloured Betty with promarkers and cut her out, she's attached to the scene with 3d foam pads. The border is punched from black glitter card using a papermania punch and layered over some orange card. I don't do punched usually, in fact I must be the only person left in the universe who hasn't got a MS punch (yet!!). I inked a domino shaped piece of stampbord with orange ink and stamped the sentiment before triple embossing it. I made holes in the corners with my cropodile and attached it with some string (coloured purple with promarkers)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Paperplay: Bon Voyage
Alphabet Challenge: P is for Punches
I did it creations: Anything goes
OSAAT: pack a punch
I love promarkers: At the seaside

I hope you'll join us at Cooking it up with Katie, why not pop over to my teamies blogs - they have some fab inspiration again this week
