1 card 4 Challenges :-)

I made this card following Martine's lovely sketch on the Basic Grey Challenge but have just realised I missed off 2 elements !! There is supposed to be 2 rectangles, one on the top and one on the bottom :-( I will go and try to fix it and re upload a piccy later :-/ ,,,,, I did remember to used BG papers tho :-)

I also made this to fit the Stamp Something challenge whose theme is Apples/Teachers/School :-) I have had this Sarah Kay stamp for a long time now and this is the first time I inked it !!

The One Stop Craft Challenge is 'Autumn', well ,, apples are an autumn fruit !! and the theme on the Cupcake Craft Challenge is 'Thanks a Bunch',,, does thanks a basket count ??? :-)



I coloured the image with copics and 3D'd her :-) I added diamond glaze to the apples and glitter copics here and there. The background was made by masking the image then spraying a light green with my new copic air gun ,,,, so much fun !! :-) I can see I will need loads of cans of air !! wonder if I can rig my scuba diving air tank up to it !!! :-)



The flowers are prima ,,, I did want to make my own like I did on my Tilda card, but I am a bit short of time today ,,,, first day back at school for Amy ,,,, she's been on school holiday since May !!!! I know most of you love having your kids home ,, and so do I ,, but 4 months is a long time and I am so glad to have my mornings to myself again :-)))))
I also used an apple charm :-)

The 'Thanks' is from a Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set

I have a blog candy pinned to the top of my blog if you would like to take a look :-)

thanks for your comments :-) I really appreciate them :-) x x
