Waste Not Wednesdays wk14

We're onto week 14 of my Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, where all my (and your) forgotten and neglected stash gets dusted off and used.  Before I show you my card for this week, I did say I'd have a little prize for a random winner and the lucky one is....

Number 6 - Alyce

Congrats Alyce - your prize is a Sugar Nellie 'simply sassy' stamp and a little embellishment selection, which I've just realised I forgot to take a photo of!  Please email me with your address hun :o)  I will usually keep the challenge as a 'just for fun' one, but I've decided to keep the link open for 2 weeks this time to make it a bit easier over the Easter hols, so I'll have another little prize again.

Here's my card for this week...




I've used a Mo Manning digi that I've had for a long time and never used - I do that with Mo images... I've got loads of them, but I get a bit nervous of colouring them so I have a lot of unused ones.  I've coloured the image with promarkers, flexmarkers and prisma pencils, the papers are K&Co from an older pad, and I've inked around all the edges with tattered rose and worn lipstick distress inks.  The sentiment is Pink Petticoat, cut out with an MFT die.  The leafy swirls were made using Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish die cuts (cut into pieces), flowers from Wild Orchid, ribbon, pearls and gems from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I wasn't impressed to see snow this morning!  It carried on for quite a while too, but then it rained (hurrah!) and washed it all away :o)  Morgan was thrilled to see snow, until I pointed out that we're meant to be taking his 'girlfriend' to the cinema tomorrow and that wouldn't happen if the snow settled!  So fingers crossed we won't get any more now.  Hope you've all had a good day and that it's been a bit warmer where you are!

  9. Lisa, don't know why you worry about your colouring - you colour perfectly every time, whatever medium you use!

    This one is just gorgeous, I've got quite a lot of Mo's images too (stamps and digis) and I am a bit intimidated by them!!!

    Love this card - the colours are gorgeous and love the embellies.

    I really must get myself some more DI colours, only have three and really could do with a few more.

    We didn't have any snow here, thankfully, just lots and lots of rain!

    Sarah

    PS - Have used an old stamp and will be able to join in later in the week.

  13. Amazing card Lisa. Love that fun image and the DP is really pretty. Thanks for joining us at TG this week.

    Our snow is going but it's been here since Monday so I'd have liked it to have gone quicker. Does that make sense?

  24. Gorgeous card Lisa, you've coloured her beautifully. I love Mo's images but I have a thing for stamps rather than digi's - it's weird I've tried digi's but they don't give me the thrill that stamps do hugs Karen x
