Good Morning! Well nearly afternoon and i am late with this post...should have been posted 11pm last night to fit in with the challenge going live in Australia but i had a SD card issue! My laptop would not recognise the SD card. In the end i had to get a new SD card then retake pictures and get them uploaded. By time i had done all this it was early hours of the morning and my head was buzzing. Anyway better late than never!
The new Elphine House Australia challenge is up and running and the theme this time round is ...
"Distressing or Torn Papers"
To enter the challenge you just need to use ANY Elisabeth Bell image from ANY of her collections..and there are a lot to choose from!
Elphine House have got so many gorgeous stamps you will be spoilt for choice. If you have not been on the EHA site then your missing out. Pop over and see for yourself!, you will love them all!
Here is my DT sample card. I am not a big fan of lots of distressing or torn paper so i have chosen to just distress the papers with Distress Inks.
This image is one of my favourites at the moment, she is callled "Carrie Thoughtful Breeze". Helen and Lew, who own EHA and also the most amazing couple, named this image after my daughter Carrie. There is now 4 stamps named after her...she thinks she is so famous and loves seeing "her stamps" around blogland.
Here is some more views of my card.
For this card i have used....
