Apple bench and Berry Tilda

There are 2 stamps guaranteed to make me want to grab my distress inks and water colour them in, especially when they have been masked together. They are a Tilda stamp and a stamp that is something for Tilda to sit on. Today's card has both these ingredients because I used Berry Tilda and The Pixie Cottage's Apple Bench stamps (they were just made for each other!).

This is my DT card for the Pixie Cottage Challenge where I have once again followed both themes: The brilliant sketch and colouring. Well, I hope I've followed both themes as my interpretation of 'colouring' was to make the image 'pop' by adding colour to it.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Gettin' Girly
Aud's Sentiments - 2 words
Card Makin' Mama's Challenge - Girls just want to have fun
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes
Crazy For Challenges - Photo Inspiration
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Something New (the beautiful flowers!)
Delicious Doodles - Something New (the new flowers)
Fab n Funky - Let's Get Warm & Toasty
Incy Wincy - Go Dotty (dress and background paper)
Gingerloft Challenge - Celebrations
Polycraft - New Things (the beautiful flowers!)
Sisterhood of Crafters - Birthday
Southern Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Tellen's Place - Punches
The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - new goodies or techniques (new goodies - the flowers)

Items Used:
The Pixie Cottage - Apple Bench, Magnolia - Berry Tilda,
Sentiment Stamp: Papermania Mix n Match Scrolls & Sentiments
Punches: Hobby Craft small butterfly and a Woodware leaf punch (yellow)
Flowers: All RAKS and aren't they gorgeous! Most of them I received for Christmas.
Papermania Heart Brads
Lace - a RAK too - and I love it (thanks Secret Santa)
Mark Richards 3mm pearls
Distress inks:
Stardust Stickles

Don't forget to hop over to the Pixie Cottage blog to see the fabulous creations by the rest of the incredibly talented design team. Make sure you scroll down past the challenge post too because there is another new stamp by Faith Skrdla called BIG VALENTINE which is available to buy now - and it is sooooo cute! There's also a chance to win it as blog candy too.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
