A Gem of a Challenge 2



I decided to make another card for this challenge as I just had to use my new Pink Gem Designs Chloe in the rain, it's just lovely. When I was designing the card I had my daughter in mind when she was younger (she's 15 now and wouldn't thank me if I dressed her like that now, she's more goth, emo now)I use to dress her in lovely co-ordinating outfits. Anyway to create this card I also used Woodware Splish Splash Splosh stamps, Woodware rain drop and circle punch, Memento dye ink London fog and adhesive dew drops. The main image was paper pieced and coloured in using Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils. The background image was stamped using Chloe and London Fog ink. The long strip was inked up using the rain drop punch to make a stencil.

Hope you like it, Love Linda
