My first There She Goes challenge

Does anybody know where you can buy There She Goes stamps in the UK? I love their stamps but can't find them readily, but I still like ogling at their blog to see all those fab DT cards! They have a weekly challenge and this week's one is to use red, pink and brown - yum! I've never played their challenges before because I thought you had to use their stamps, but you don't! So here is my entry...





I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #54 sketch again as I thought it would showcase that yummy paper and butterfly!


Papers/cardstock: BasicGrey Indian Summer, various Bazzill cardstock
Stamps: none
Mediums: none
Accents: Papermanie adhesive pearls
Tools: Martha Stewart String Lace edge punch, Quickutz Revolution butterfly die

you must be my slimmer twin lol ( not eaten quite as many chocolate limes as me ) - i only tried watercolour pencils yesterday for the first time after a tutorial by my 16yr old daughter! I found it surprisingly easy. I wanted to enter the Magnolia challenge and i think the Tilda images suit watercolour better.
I will definitely be using them again.
Give it a try - i am sure you will be able to use them ok ( if i can it can't be that difficult lol)
One tip i would give is to use a waterbrush -they are great.

Hi Mary

You left a lovely comment on my blog so thought I would pop over to yours to have a nosey at your creations!

Wow, this card is a real stunner. You are right about the layout showing off those lovely backing papers!

I have never heard of There She Goes stamps before so can't help you with a UK stockist I'm afraid! Just looked at their website and blog though and they are amazing.... i want some!!

Take care and do pop over to my blog again to say hi!
