Crafty Cardmakers - make your own papers


It's time for a new spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers, and from now on the spotlight challenges have their own blog which you can see here.  Our challenge for this fortnight is to make your own designer papers - you can do this however you like, but any papers on your card must be made by you.

I've used one of the fab new images from the Cupcake Collection from Digistamp Boutique, and a digi sentiment from TLC.  I printed the cupcakes onto ivory linen cardstock, and coloured them with promarkers, adding lots of glamour dust.  The papers were made using ivory linen card stamped with Stampin' Up flower and dot stamps, using memento inks.  I then inked around the edges of each paper with pink memento ink.  Dark brown cardstock is from Papermill Direct, raffia lace, flowers and button from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Back later to announce my candy winner :o)
