Wild Rose Studio DT card

I made this card following Jolanda's fab sketch on the Create 4 Fun Challenge :-)



I am back with another card using the Lady with Shopping image designed by Dulcie at the Wild Rose Studio I do love these fuller figure ladies, makes me feel less guilty as i'm tucking into a HUGE bar of Cadbury's whole nut !! ,,, keeps my energy levels up :-)
I coloured her with Copics and added glossy accents to her jewellery, handbag clasps and shoes. The papers are My Minds Eye and SU Close to Cocoa cardstock. The ribbon is Martha Stewart seam binding and the flowers are a selection of Prima. I also used my new EK Success punch ,, which I LOVE :-)

Simon Says ,,,,,Autumn Photo Inspiration Challenge

Thanks for all your fab entries to Jay jays fab sketch last week and hope you will all join us again this week for a fab new theme of Autumn with a gorgeous photo for your inspiration :-)
MS ones are lovely but only good for very thin card eh !!
Steph (Heidi's right hand girl) sent us this photo months ago and we thought it was perfect to make it into an autumn photo inspiration challenge :-)



Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a trolley dash around her store to the value of $25 and she will pay the postage costs too. I was just having a browse there myself earlier and they now have the Laurence Attril for Stampavie stamps ,,, GORGEOUSS I must admit I hadn't heard of him before ,, but I definitely NEED some of these !! CComp Popcorn Bear stamps AND the CComp SWALK stamps are New In too, plus loads of other new goodies !!! :-)



For my card I followed Jo's fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-)



As soon as I saw this gorgeous Turning Over a New Leaf House Mouse stamp I knew it would be PERFECT for my card :-) I coloured the image with Copics,decoupaged the leaves and added star dust stickles here and there and the edges were inked with Stormy Sky distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer, these were a gift from a lovely blog buddy xx:-) I used my new EK Success swirl punch FANTASTIC !! ( temporarily out of stock but will be back soon :-)) I love these punches ,, they even punch through thick cardstock, even thicker than SU !! brilliant !! I used a Tim Holtz Elegant Flourish Die Cut and Grungepaper to make a swirl. The sentiment is a Stampendous one which I adapted :-) I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and some Martha Sewart ribbon to finish :-)
