Dream Valley Challenge 8 - Stamp Something



Here we are again with the next Dream Valley Challenge, 'Stamp Something'! So get out the old rubber and get stamping!

Our two sponsors are Papermaze who are offering a £10 voucher for their shop, and Funky Kits which is the home of Sugar Nellie, who are offering the winner's choice of one of their stamps!

What about the card, then? This lad is Scooter Boy one of the Sugar Nellie Mangas. I love those stamps, they are so cute!

I hope he's not going to take that scooter onto the road, though, because he isn't wearing a helmet! I coloured his mean machine green then went over it with an embossing pen and clear embossed, to give some shine (which doesn't really show here, hey-ho!) The papers are a Bearly Mine download called 'The Boys Zone'. The colours are lovely soft blues, browns and greens.

The sketch is this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge. The ribbons in the top corner are actually stamped with a Lili of the Valley Additions ribbon stamp, in Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The tag is also LotV, also done in Faded Jeans.

The gems are from stash, and the chipboards are DCWV 'All Dressed Up' which I got in a sale at Hobbycraft ages ago.

I'm also entering the Charisma Cardz Challenge which is for boys' or mens' cards.

Oh dear, the dark clouds are building up in the West, the wind is getting up and it's so cold! Anyone would think it was a Bank Holiday weekend!

Anyway, do toddle over to Dream Valley and have a look at my teamies' fantastic creations. There's a DT Call on, too!

Thanks for looking, and have a relaxing holiday.

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Dusky Pink, Putty, Pastel Pink; Powder Blue, Denim Blue, Cornflower, Royal Blue, Indigo; Emerald, Lush Green, Pine
