Happy Anniversary Jack and Ginger :-)

I was lucky enough to win a choice of images from Mo Manning at the Digital Pencil Shop on the Creative Inspiration Challenge a few weeks ago and I thought this Jack and Ginger image would be perfect to enter their Anniversary Challenge this week :-)

I followed the fab layout on the Sketch Saturday Challenge I love this sketch :-) I think it is Jo that designed it ,,, but not sure ! :-/ Whoever it was thank you x x

I coloured the happy couple with copics and kept the colours 'old' ,,, well ,, not many old people wear hot pink etc do they ! :-) the papers are Basic Grey Two Scoops ,, I have to say I think this is a fabulous paper pad ,, my fave I think ! :-) I used gold stardream caerd for layering as I was thinking 'Golden Wedding Anniversary' when I was making it :-) the flowers are prima ,, slightly edged with pink copic and sprayed with pearl glimmer mist :-)
I used a Martha Stewart heart border punch and some ribbon that I bought recently in Holland :-) The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives sentiment set

This Jack and Ginger image is now available as a stamp and is in stock at Simon Says Stamp :-) the papers, Martha Stewart punch, flowers and glimmer mist, sentiment sets are also available :-)

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

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one so I know you dropped in for a visit :-)

Papertake Weekly Sketch Challenge sponsored by Kraftin Kimmie :-)

The super talented Dawny P has made another gorgeous sketch for us all to follow at the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week,, I know you're all gonna like it, nice and easy :-)
We are being sponsored this week by the very generous and lovely KRAFTIN KIMMIE :-) Did you all do the blog hop ?? The new images are fantastic !! I feel a shoppng spree comin on !!! :-)

For my card I used my new Drucilla stamp ,, I bought this after the last hop and this is the first time I have used it :-) Isn't she fab ! :-) I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her dress. The papers are by creative imaginations ,,, they do these really gothy papers ,,, perfect I thought with this voodoo image :-) I also used the heart stamp that comes with this image, added a charm and hung it on the ribbon ,, :-)

I distressed the edges with black soot distress inks and made it quite streaky deliberately ,,, honest :-)
I swiped pigment ink and sprinkled black sparkle embossing powder on all the edges of the DP to ,, err add sparkle ,,, :-)

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on ,,, it shows up better IRL but it says 'enjoy the little things' :-) ( these rub ons are FAB !! )I just thought it went REALLY well with this image :-)
