2 New Challenges :-)

I went on a little blog hop yesterday and found 3 new challenges ,,,I only managed to combine 2 of them for this card so the other one will have to wait until tomorrow :-)
I found Carol's Sketch Fun Challenge following a link from Kath's blog, so I made this card using Carol's fab sketch. From there I found the Stampotique Designers Challenge ,, it is their first week and they are asking for 'LOVE' :-)



I used this fab Stampotique image,, this one is called ,, Girl with Heart Purse :-) I coloured her with copics and inked the edges with black soot distress ink. The papers are Creative Impressions ,, I think ,,, but don't quote me :-) I also used some Black magic coredinations and a Martha Stewart heart punch. I used a little distressed ribbon and a Tim Holtz fragment tag :-)



I love these quirky Stampotique stamps ,, I know they are weird and a bit goth ,, but I think they're fab ! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)


I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
