Sukkersött Challenge - yes another one lol

I stumbled across this blog a few weeks back and forgot all about it (as you do) till I saw Rach's amazing creation and loved it so much I had to try it out for myself (as you do lol).

I have been itching to ink up my new Morehead stamps so knew straight away that she would be perfect for the card I had in mind. I had a good old rake through my papers - the ones you buy and put away for years and years yeah? You've all got them yeah?? I found this Karen Neuberger sheet and the rest of the card just fell into place - don't you just love it when that happens! I stitched around the borders, and deepened the colour on the edges of the paper and card with some chalk ink to give a bit of depth to the pale pink.

I''ve carried the lace through to the inside of the card, the flourish stamp is HOTP


Recipe: Morehead You and Me stamp coloured with Distress inks - Tattered Rose, Weathered Wood, Dusky Concord, Worn Lipstick, Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint
and H2O's - Apple Blossom, Garnet, Midori Melon, Lemondrop, Fern, Periwinkle, Wild Plum, Chestnut Brown, Scarab Beetle
Paper is Tickled Pink Floral by Karen Neuberger
Sentiment stamp is Stampin Up as is the label punch
The punch on the inside is Martha Stewart Lace Doiley
The lace is from Dainty Supplies (love that shop - it's a lace and ribbon addicts paradise!!!)
The flower - right ... the lilac flower is Papermania, the centre pinky one is an organze trim that you gather to make a flower, it was origianlly cream but I tinted it with a chalk ink. The paper rose in the center is from Dainty Supplies as well.

Phew, I'm exhausted after all that but .....

Whilst oogling and salivating over Rach's creations I realised that she had given me this award - me??? I was gobsmacked, and still am and for me that is a miracle Rach lol. Thank you so much sweetie, you have no idea how much this means to me, especially as this award is to be passed on to only one person...

Now I need to try and pick just one person that inspires me and this is so hard!!! There are so many talented people out there that all deserve this award but as I can only pass this on to one special person I am going to pass it on to ......

Jacqui

Not only because she is the most amazing crafter but also because she does not realise just how good she is. Maybe you will believe me now sweetie!!!


Thanks for looking,
