1500 Members for the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Group

Both the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and Facebook Group have been going for some time now.
 There are celebrations going on over at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Group as they have achieved an amazing 1500 members.  There are so many of us that love Ching-Chou Kuik's images throughout the world.

To celebrate this achievement there is a special challenge going on.

Please pop on over to the Facebook Group for more details.
For this week-end ONLY (2 April and 3 April) you can get a MASSIVE 40% off all digital stamps ONLY in the store if you use the code "THANKS40".  Hurry on over to the Etsy Store grab some bargains.
I have played along with the challenge.  For my favourite colour scheme I have gone for purple and blue - purple as it is my favourite colour and blue to remind me of the sea.

I have used the freebie image "Little Clover" and coloured her in with Promarkers trying to do an ombre effect on her hair with various purple/blue Promarkers, chalked the background, added white dots with my Posca pen, added some faux stitching with a fine detail pen and finally inked around the edges with my Tim Holtz Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord distress inks.

The backing papers are by Tracy Wray (mens' set and oriental) and Club Hunkydory.  I have used my Tim Holtz distressing tool to distress the edges and then inked with a purple chalk ink pad.

I have finished the card off with some lace, ribbon, button, die-cuts from a friend, stamped sentiment, flowers die-cut from the leftover printed papers and Papermania Glitterations.
