Colour combo - DT card.

This weeks challenge over at The Crazy Challenge Blog is "Colour combo". Basically you get to pick 3 colours of your own choice to use in whatever you make.

Our loverly sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs. I used one of their gorgeous diggie stamps as the main image on my card and the sentiment is an LOTV stamp. As always they were coloured with spectrum noir alcohol pens.

I used the colours sand, pink and gold.

If you would like to do a "Guest Design" spot for us on the "
The Crazy Challenge blog" then add 'GD' after you name when you enter this weeks  challenge and someone will contact you. Or you can email Kelly at:

Please come and join the design team (DT) and have some fun entering the challenge.

A Simple Card.

Here is a simple stamped image card I made today.  The image is from LOTV and so is the sentiment stamp.

I stamped the image using memento ink, coloured in with spectrum noir pens, printed the background onto centura pearl paper, mounted onto black mirror board and I made the card base from ivory centura pearl cardstock, then added some card candi.
