Rope Swing

Happy Sunday to you folks, I hope you have been enjoying your weekend ours has been fairly quiet but lovely.
 
Right onto my card.  I decided to make an easel card for a change its been a long time since I made one and I dug out an old Sugar Nellie image called 'Rope Swing' by Elisabeth Bell.  Sometimes I forget I have such beautiful older stamps with all the new ones coming out.  I decided to have another go at colouring on kraft with my Prismas again.
 
Image:  Sugar Nellie 'Rope Swing'
Medium:  Prismacolor pencils blended with sansador
Papers:  Prima 'Sun Kiss'
Dies:  Tim Holtz on the Edge, Magnolia Doohickey 'vintage daisies',
'vintage tag' & 'dragonflies', Cheery Lynn 'fanciful flourish'
Roses:  Wild Orchid Crafts
 
Everything was distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink.  I'd forgotten how hard easel cards are to photograph.  My camera seems to have made the colours a bit paler as well they're deeper IRL.

 
A close up of the cutiepie image.  I so love my vintage daisy die at the moment it makes fab flowers.

 
Challenges I would like to enter:-
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Right best dash loads of washing to catch up on which ultimately means more ironing, yuk!!!
 
Take care and happy crafting everyone.
