Sketch and Stash Challenge

I didn't have to do the nursery run today because my youngest Daughter had no nursery so I put the other 2 to school and spent the morning and most of the afternoon doing crafts with Chiara. She is only 3 but she knows what she wants and most of the time it is the most expensive things in my stash so she can stick them together all on one piece of card!!


I also got my card done for the Sketch and Stash challenge.
I have been trying to use some of my stamps that I haven't used for a while instead of using the same ones over and over again, so this was the perfect opportunity to dust them off and ink them up.
The challenge this week is to use 2 images and 2 flowers, there is also a sketch and you have to use something new from your stash or something you have had for ages/never used.
I used a flower fairy stamp that I got in a magazine forever ago and had never used it before, and coloured it with copics. On the picture showing you the stamp coloured in, her dress is kind of white with just a hint of colour in some places where you would shade, so I tried to only use a tiny amount of colour on the dresses and blend it in with my blender pen. Don't know if it was very effective but it was fun trying :)
The purple cardstock was put through my cuttlebug and the dp is Kanban vintage floral distress which I bought from my local craft shop last week. The flowers are from my stash and the pearl brads are from papermania which I got in my bargain box that finally came yesterday from Artymiss. Oh and the sentiment is from a See-D's Christmas set.
I hope to get a few more challenge cards done tonight so will post later if I get them finished.
Thanks for looking today and please remember to leave a comment so I don't get lonely :)
