Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #49 and Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #44



So sooooo annoyed at myself!!!! I've been struggling to upload photo's to my blog all day and have been trying on this blog and also my family blog and in the end gave it up in frustration! Have come back to it now to realise that I actually can upload so just started doing my thing without realising which blog I was on only to discover I have loaded all my craft stuff onto the family blog and have no idea how to get it over here without retyping the whole damn thing!!!!

So here I am retyping the whole damn thing!!!! :)

I'm going to keep it brief! hehehehe

Inkspiration and Just Add Ink Challenges  - combined - see below...




And here is my card...


The Sketch is flipped but otherwise fairly true to form. The colours however I had to do a little bit of 'making do'??? I don't actually own any Wild Wasabi or River Rock Cardstock yet - however - I was saved by the fact that I do own the inks (my very first set of inks when they were In Colours in 2007/2008). I was very impressed that they were still inky!!! So - I've used Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake as well as Very Vanilla and used Wild Wasabi to colour in my leaves, and River Rock with highlights of Blushing Bride to colour in my flowers. All in all a very vintagey looking card...



A close up of those flowers - I love these flowers...

Ok - so I can't be bothered writing out all my supplied AGAIN so, if you have any questions just shoot me a line! :) :) :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

WONDERFUL!!!!! I really love this - have you double stamped the sentiment so that it looks like it has a shadow??? Clever Girly!
I love the vintage look :)

Beautiful! I love your ribbon detail!

If you ever have the problem of needing to retype again, there's a quick solution. Go to your original post, select html editing, select all, and copy. Then go to where you want the post to be, select html editing and paste. By doing it in html, you'll transfer all your formatting and photos. Hope that makes sense! I learnt the hard way... :-)
