Seeing Through....

I was so lucky to win last week's challenge at Sweet Pea stampers - this gorgeous ching-chou Kuik stamp was part of my prize from the lovely Linda at Jazzlin's Designs (huge thank you's to Linda and the rest of the fabby team at Sweet Pea Stampers). I've used 'Seeing Through' for this card


I stamped the image with versamark and embossed with black detail EP, I also dotted the sky with a versamark pen and added some clear sparkle EP to look like stars in the sky. I've coloured the image with Twinkling H20's except for the skintones which are promarkers. This new camera is not very friendly lol, I can't turn the flash off for some reason so sorry for the glare on the pic. Papers are from K&Co (distressed and inked with vintage photo DI), shimmery  floral ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, the heart shaped pearls, flowers and leaves are also from Linda at Jazzlin's with some glimmer mists and stickles added. The buttons, dragonfly brad, and lace are from my stash.

I'm so pleased I found Linda's shop, we are in a bit of crafty desert here and although Linda's online store isn't open yet you can email her with an order, Linda is so friendly and her prices are FAB!!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Sweet Pea stampers: Lace and Pearls (they also have some fabby monthly blog candy)
Rainbow Lady's Challenge: Sparkle and Shine
Truly Scrumptious: Sketch + Brads, buttons and bows
Incy Wincy: Buttons and Bows
Lollipop: Ribbon and Buttons
City crafter: I see stars (you'll be lucky in this dodgy photo lol but they are there honest)

Thanks for looking. I usually love Thursdays as it means the weekend is nearly here but I'm enjoying my week off so much I'm not in a hurry for the weekend to arrive
