Make A Scene


This is my DT card for Let’s Ink it Up and their challenge is: Make A Scene

What can I say about my card except that I threw everything at it except the kitchen sink, so if that’s not making a scene I don’t know what is.

Our fab sponsor for this challenge is Tickled Pink Stamps who is offering you this fantastic Prize Package – of a $10 Voucher to the Tickled Pink Store.

Here’s a little about our fab sponsor: “Tickled Pink Stamps is based in Australia and is the home of the Lil Lolita and Lil Lads Stamps. They are everything quirky and sweet all in the one stamp and perfect for any occasion. Tickled Pink Stamps also has a range of sentiments and images to match with the gorgeous Lil Lolita and Lil Lads ranges. With new images coming all the time there is always something there to suit everyone and help bring out the quirky in us all….”

Back to the card, I used a lot of my fave things, distressing, glimmer misting, glazing, masking, punching, stamping, embossing, stitching think that just about sums it up. I used the PB stamp called …. the forever dream …. awww such a pretty name, another PB stamp called bliss and another called Sparklers …. love my PB stamps …. the tree stamp is an Art Impressions stamp.

My card was all ready to put together but somehow the cream lace didn’t fit right, so what do all good crafters do, they throw the glimmer mist at it, love it now

My card fits a few challenges this week so here goes:
Entering for – The Shabby Tea Room their challenge is …. Chocolate Covered Autumn …. they are showing the most yummy inspirational photo.
Stampin for the Weekend – Halloween/Fall
Creative Inspiration Challenge – Halloween/Fall
Charisma Cardz Challenge – Vintage
