papertake weekly challenge

There is a fab sketch to follow for this weeks challenge over at papertake weekly. I must admit I really enjoyed making this card. Maybe it was due to the fact that I have spent the majority of the day in my craft room playing with all my new stamps. Yesterday I received 'kerryjo's' and the day before I received the set of Elizabeth Bells collection from Funky Kits. I have made quite a few cards today, I will post the rest at a later date.
This image is called 'sitting with bear'. I've used Bazzill card stock, patterned papers are Basic Grey from the 'gypsy' pad, I've also used my new embossing folder 'spots & dots'. The edges of the papers have been inked using Tim Holtz distress ink pad 'brushed courduroy', really like using those inkpads at the mo, they are also great for watercolouring your images too. Faux stitches added with Whisper pen. Sentiment is HOTP stamp.

I really think I had better leave my craftroom now and do some hous****k (crikey I nearly said that word then...he! he!). Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone is happy and well.
