When life throws you Scraps ….

Afternoon lovelies, I cannot believe it is Thursday already ! where are the days going. 
Today I wanted to share with you a card I made using Fairy Needle image from Mo Manning 
I love Mo’s images, especially her little fairies. 
The lovely Lis did a tutorial some time ago on the Spectrum Noir Blog on colouring on Kraft Card, it can be found here , i thought this image would look great coloured on Kraft and i am really happy with how it turned out…Thank you Lis 🙂 It is coloured of course with my Spectrum Noirs (list below) the papers were scraps (they are Prima papers) that i stitched together using my sewing matching, I then added some rough stitching around the edge of the sentiments. All the edges were then distressed and I added some Broken China Distress ink. 
Don’t forget to check out the Spectrum Noir Blog  there is TONS of fab tutorials on all sorts of different techniques.
