Ching Chou Kuiks Purple Hearts

Good morning bloggers I bet you thought I'd forgotten to post my card for the Sweet Stampers Challenge? Well I hadn't, I just had a few issues with blogger and my camera and by the time they were resolved it meant my post was going to be really late, so I figured I give you something to read whilst you eat your cornflakes this morning ;)

The challenge this time is "Things With Wings" and the prize is a grab bag of 3 Sweet Pea stamps kindly provided by the lovely Lynette over at Sweet Pea Stamps. The DT have created some beautiful cards for your inspiration, so please do try and find time to stop by their blogs.

I've decided that I need to ink up more of my Sweet Peas, so I'm on a mission to use a different one for each challenge. This week I decided to use Purple Hearts and boy was she a delight to colour. I'm not sure what's happened in my photo, it looks like the highlights in her hair harsh lines, but they are really blended IRL (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it - LOL). Anyway, here's the card I made for your inspiration - I hope you like it.

The image is Ching Chou Kuiks Purple Hearts. I've coloured it with Promarkers and have then added Sakura Clear Star Gel Pen to her dress and Star Dust Stickles to her wings and the eye mask. I pleated the seam binding prior to securing it to the reverse of the image. The papers are First Edition Spring Feast which have been distressed. The buttons are from Woodware.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend, thanks for stopping by today.
