Rose's Bike Ride + New Challenge Blog!

To view my candy giveaway please click here  - winners will be drawn 6/5/12

Hi everyone! You might remember a couple of weeks ago that I mentioned I was joining the design team over at Craft-A-Lot...well their challenges debut this week! It is a monthly challenge and you must use a Unity stamp to qualify. You can combine this with other stamps like how I have done below. If you need to top up your unity collection, head over to Craft-A-Lot to have a look and check out their kit of the month too! :D


For my card I have used the gorgeous Whimsy stamp Rose's Bike Ride, and have paired her with a Unity banner sentiment.


I have used some of my favourite papers from Kaisercraft, some cheesecloth (yes I am addicted lol), and a mixture of flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid. I have machine stitched around all of the papers, and have added some rhinestones and Make it Crafty chippies to top it all off.


I coloured Rose using my copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E11, R11
Hair: E43, E45, E47
Dress: G000, G00, BG23, BG09
Roses: Peach YR000, YR02, YR07 Blue BG01, BG05, BG09
Bike: Peach YR000, YR02, YR07 Grey C3, C5, C7
Sky: BG000, Blender

Don't forget to pop over and take part in the challenge as there are some great prizes on offer! :D Can't wait to see your lovely creations!

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Unity Challenge - Pink, Green, and Off White (Pinks in the background papers and the flowers :)
