By the skin of my teeth.................Happy Little Stampers challenges

Happy Sunday from a very wet and windy Somerset!  Seems like most of the UK is receiving similar weather - so good news for us crafters eh?

Whilst I was making my card for the City Crafter challenge that I was reminded of the March challenges over at Happy Little Stampers.  The first is a sketch challenge and the second is sponging.

Hopefully I've managed to combine both challenges in one card!  


I started off by sponging some SU inks onto a piece of cardstock.  I then used an IndigoBlu stamp (freebie with a magazine) using SU Not quite Navy and heat embossed it with Judikins Iridescent Sparkle e/p (which I don't think is showing up at all in the photo).  The sentiment is a Waltzingmouse sentiment stamp......... unfortunately they don't put a title of the set on the packet; and stamped and embossed as above.  I matted onto a piece of navy cardstock and then onto a prescored card.

Thanks for stopping to have a look round.

Happy crafting.
