Dutch Dare - Card Challenge

sweet ebony, sugar nellie, elisabeth bell
Here's a card I made for the Dutch Dare - Card Challenge. It's another Sweet Ebony from Sugar Nellie stamps - this one is my absolute favourite! The challenge was to use only one designer paper on the card - not too much of a challenge for me - I don't usually use more than one! I'm not sure about the sentiment whether or not I like it. But I'll leave it like this for now!
Here's a link to the 5th Dutch Dare Card Challenge.

It's a new day... it's time for some blog candy! Andrea is giving away some wonderful Magnolia stamps along with some paper, flowers and buttons! Check it out on her blog:

Check out the Spiral Whisper Blog for a competition to win some stamps! You just need to name their new teddy bear stamps!

Sweet Ebony Stamps!

I gave in and finally ordered some Sweet Ebony stamps from Funky Kits in the UK. I love these images - they are so adorable! I was at the cottage this week and got a few cards done. These are all coloured with distress inks - I love watercolouring with them. It's now my favourite way to colour images!
