A Spoon Full Of Sugar

This week's theme is a colour scheme

Blue & Green

Here is my card

The main image is a combination of Alota and Sugar Nellie stamps. The rocking chair is one of many brand new stamps from Alota. You can find them all on the Alota site here.There are lots of lovely new summer designs along with some baby designs.The rocking chair is perfect for all your "character" stamps. The girl is of course a Gorjuss girl from Funky Kits. They have both been coloured with a mixture of copics and promarkers. The papers are all from the Basic Grey Lily Kate range.I've distressed the edges and then inked them. The flowers are a bit of a blast from the past! I bought a HOTP swirly flower template ages ago and it got lost under the piles of paper, now the piles are going down I found it again! I made them out of the same papers and then distressed and inked them and then added the Stampin up brads to the middles. The sentiment is also from a Stampin Up set.

There is a great range of cards this week using blue and green from the DT and you can see them all on the A Spoon Full of Sugar blog here. We also have a guest designer this week and that is Steph.

Helene from Alota stamps has kindly donated a prize this week for one lucky winner. Two gorgeous Alota bug stamps. I love those bugs!
