Ohhh my goodness!


Well, I haven't been this nervous for a while!  I had an amazing email last week, asking me if I'd like to be a Guest Designer at Stamp Something for the next couple of months... I nearly keeled over from the shock lol!  I love the challenges at Stamp Something so it was a bit of a no-brainer really, of course I said yes.  I still can't believe they asked me though!

The challenge this week is a fab sketch and we're sponsored by DRS Designs.

I've used a sweet LOTV stamp, that I've had a couple of months but haven't used until now.  I've coloured it with promarkers and added some shading and glow using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  Oh, and lots of sparkle with glamour dust of course!  The papers are downloaded ones from Bearly Mine - I've used the same design on the smaller squares, but just reduced the size of it for smaller spots.  Cardstock is coredinations, MS punched snowflakes (glamour dusted again!) and a sentiment stamp from Pink Gem.  The felt flowers were freebies with a mag - didn't think I'd ever use them but I have at last... used some felt dots from the same freebie pack for the snowflake centres.  Added a gem brad and some card candy to finish.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
