Hi all, today I have a card that I would like to share with you and enter into a few challenges, I have used one of my rubber stamps that I bought from Funky Kits many moons ago, she is from the Cherry Pip range, I have another one but this particular stamp I thought is better for Summer time, although sat here looking out the window it looks anything but Summer, dark and dreary, never mind I can do lots of crafting today. 
You may be able to sense that I am a little happier with my post today, I think I have finally broken the 'blogging/Google' curse, Firefox seems to be working well.........at the moment, lol.

I inked the stamp up with Versafine Sepia then coloured with Copics and Graph It Markers, I doodled the frame then mounted her onto black card stock, the papers are a mixture of LOTV and Wild Rose, i did a little faux stitching, added a sentiment, punched butterflies and some flowers.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thank for visiting my blog I do hope that you like my card and maybe it has brought you just a wee little bit of happiness, many thanks also for the lovely comments that you leave for me they really are my strength.
see you soon

*Vicki* said...

Oh my word she is SO SWEET!! I adore this image and you really make me want to get mine to color!! :) Fabulous papers and I love the addition of butterflies!! HUGS

Donna Ellis said...

She is adorable, Lorraine! I love your coloring, of course - you always inspire me with your color choices and blending techniques. But to use the sepia to achieve a fainter line is a fantastic idea, and perfect for lots of flesh tone areas showing up. The white dots on your fabrics look great with the whites in your background panels. The details are sweet as can be! I'm sorry about not visiting as often as I'd like these days. Thanks for understanding. hugs, de
