Scrapology Card Challenge

Somehow I missed posting this earlier in the week, here is a card I made for the card challenge over at the scrapology blog this month.  The challenge is to use a digital stamp, something which I have never done before, but it was actually really straightforward and great as you could size the image to fit on the card, it would be great for decoupaging too (but just one step at a time).  We were sent a stamped image from Charmed Cards and Crafts to use, so here is mine.  I used it for a birthday card for my niece as she loves pink and princesses :)

The papers are kaisercraft - Miss Nelly, and I used a small doily for the background too, so it didn't get too pink.  I coloured the images in using my distress inks.  I just added some distress ink to my craft sheet (non-stick baking mat) and then added a little bit of water until the colour was the right depth for me, then painted it onto the image.  I also did the same with the stickles - added it to my craft sheet and then watered it down a little.  The flowers are made from a mix of the papers and some old book paper, and I cut out some leaves from the book paper and painted these green too.

This definitely took me out of my comfort zone as I rarely show the cards I make, and rarely use pink and princesses!  I hope you enjoy it.  There is even more gorgeous inspiration over on the blog so click here to have a look.
