Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 16 June 2017

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "BUTTERFLIES".

The topic for the Design Team this week was "USE KRAFT CARD".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Winter Watcher" (this is available in a set along with three other images).  I have printed the image off onto Crafter's Companion Desert Storm card and coloured in with Promarkers.

I used a Crafter's Companion wood effect embossing folder with some kraft card and then inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink.  I made a flower out of kraft card with a poppy die and stamp by Sheena Douglass.

I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, ric-rac ribbon and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
