Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group Monthly Challenge - November 2015 - All creatures great and small

Today sees the start of another challenge over at the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group and time for you to see creations from the Facebook Design Team.

The challenge for November 2015 is "all creatures great and small".

I know I am part of the Blog Design Team but I have decided to play along as well.
For my birthday card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Awake in Purple Dream" and I have coloured my image in with my Promarkers.

I decided not to use backing papers and instead used a piece of watercolour card and rubbed on Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender Tim Holtz distress inks covering the whole card and then spritzed with water and then left for about a minute and blotted off some colour and left to dry.  I then used a flower and harlequin stencil and inked through with my Dusty Concord distress ink.  I then put the card through my Embossalicious large dots embossing folder and then sanded back to reveal some of the white core.

I have finished the card off with a doily, raffia ribbon, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, Britannia die-cut flowers (I've got the smallest set of these but definitely need the other two so I can make beautiful flowers) and Nuvo crystal drops in the centre of the flowers and the dots of the embossing folder.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
