The Sugar Bowl Challenge 33 & Allsorts Challenge 47...

Todays card is my entry for the latest challenge over at the Sugar Bowl.
This time it has to be based on a fab sketch by Gayle, and must include flowers.
I will also enter it into this weeks Allsorts challenge. The theme this week is 'petals and pearls'.
I have had this lovely 'Girl & Birdhouse' stamp available at Funky Kits for a while now but only just got around to using it. So many stamps, so little time...

When visiting Tesco this week, I was really pleased to find some Daler-Rowney watercolour pads reduced to clear at £1.50 each. I got 3, and was so pleased with them that I sent my husband to get me 3 more! I have stamped the image onto the watercolour paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and watercoloured with Distress Inks;

Skin - Tea Dye & Tattered Rose
Hair - Antique Linen & Walnut Stain
Clothes - Bundled Sage, Pine Needles & Broken China
Tree & Birdhouse - Walnut Stain & Aged Mahogany
Flowers - Worn Lipstick & Aged Mahogany
Background - Faded Jeans & Bundled Sage

I have used an 8x8 cream card blank (Craftwork cards).
The papers are K & Co. Craftwork Cards sentiment. Flowers from my stash blinged up with Stickles. The lovely emerald coloured pearls were from ebay. The raffia lace was from Quixotic Paperie. I have also used my new scallop punch by X Cut, which I must say are excellent value for money at just £3.60 from

Thanks for looking :-)

Hi Jennifer

I wonder if my Tesco has those pads, they sound like a real steal.

A lovely card, beautifully coloured and co-ordinated.

Thank you for joining in my petals and pearls theme at Allsorts this week.
