Thursday, 28 October 2010 be a Pilgrim!

Welcome to the Glitterbabes 18th challenge!!! Wow time sure is flying this year :D doesn't seem like 5minutes since Stef allowed me a place on her dt!! As it is an Anything Goes challenge this week I asked her if I could use these gorgeous little "pilgrims" for my card.

Now I know some people shy away from stamps n digi's because they don't think their colouring techniques are good enough, but fear not!! A lot of Stefs images include a pre-coloured format. I coloured my background paper(another of Stef's images "grapevine") with promarkers, but for the "Pilgrim Boy" and "Pilgrim Girl" I used the ready coloured versions(just faded them a little to age them). All the images are printed onto handmade paper, which I ragged the edges on the background to distress. The ink from the promarkers hardly spread at all, just enough to give a lovely look of faded linen :D
This week the dt is being joined by the Lovely Dawn Lotharius, who makes some amazing stuff!! So why not pop over and leave her some love?
