Yarn Lover Rose

Morning and welcome to my new follower Alka-and we have a new challenge at A Inky Mess sponsored by SCrap N Dipity-I chose Yarn Lover Rose because I had the perfect B.paper to go with-I made my card using said paper and coloured the image in distress inks-the blue dress seeped into the skin-I had promised grandaughters we would go swimming today so when we got home I printed another image,played safe with colouring with promarkers which then didn't match papers-next added Brushos to wet baby wipe which I wasn't happy with so pressed a piece of white card over the top and because the wipe was on corrugated cardbord I captured the texture and colouring was a lot brighter so decided to use as a backing paper.I knitted a few rows on thin needles then transfered on to cocktail sticks with wooden beads stuck on the ends-I then stamped a freebie ruler stamp round three sides and when I posted the card saw the top one was upside down!!! Got round that by covering with watermark lol--so here is the finished completely different card to the one I started with but which TBH I actually like a lot better lol.

  29. This is so cute! Thank you for joining our Challenge a few weeks ago at Word Art Wednesday. We have a week left on our current Challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 84:11 and it says, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Have a blessed week.
