Charisma cardz #8–DT card


Please scroll down to see my PFP/Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again dear friends.  I’m back with a very late DT card for charisma cardz challenge (I should have posted it last Thursday – what am I like – I’m getting worse I think lol!).  The theme is “masking” and if you’re not sure how to achieve this technique here is a link to a simple tutorial by Beate Johns on SCS, although if I can do it I think most people can haha!.   I decided to use two older stamps from sugar nellie from the gorjuss girls range, which are still firm favourites of mine.  Here is my card:

The images I used are ‘just a girl’ and ‘sitting’ and I coloured them with promarkers and flex markers,  The gorgeous papers are first edition from the ‘hideaway’ paper pad and I coloured the doily with a cats eye chalk ink pad to match my papers.  I added a memory box flourish and some lollipop flowers and I was done.  I really like the sunshine-y feel to this card, especially as they are not colours I would normally use.

Our sponsors this week are Simon Says stamp who are offering a $20.00 voucher to spend in their online store and Pink Cat Studio who are offering a prize of 5 digi images. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing cards as always (and Jenni and myself used the same images on our cards lol!).  Please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
