Very First Let's Ink It Up DT Card!!

Hello everyone,

Apologies for the late posting of this card, I have been having computer problems all day!

It is time for the LIIU fortnightly challenges with the new DT (some of the original ladies are still on the team too) and that gives me the chance to show you my first DT card.

Challenge #10 is "show us your embossing"

The sponsor for this challenge is

Inky Impressions, the winner will receive 2 stamp of their choice and a goodie bag.

I used the Sugar Nellie stamp "JOY" I thought she was so adorable and I love her even more now she is coloured.

I didnt use any dp on this card but I did use a Marianne embossing stencil which I sponged with distress inks to make a backgeound. The panels are embossed using the cuttlebug and edged with distress inks. Flowers are from Wild orchid Crafts, pins from stash. Image coloured with promarkers cool greys 1- 5.

Here is a close up of the image.................

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

One Stop Craft Challenge
- black and white and one other colour
Fairy Tale Challenge Blog - something for a child or with a child image

Why not pop over and have a look at all the wonderful cards the dt have created and enter in our challenge. Remember it is rubber stamps only.

Thanks for looking and Good Luck!

Patsi xx
