D is for..


Hi Folks, its time for another letter in our Alphabet Challenge and this time its D for Daffodil.
Lesley, our wonderful leader has decided to retire and this is the last one she will be hosting, so please give her a challenge to remember and join us.  Luckily, Shaz has agreed to step in and take over the reins, so I am sure we will continue to be in safe hands.
My image was stamped last year when I attended a workshop run by Jill Tuck from the Stampman, and she kindly let us play with with various stamps that she had brought along, so thanks Jill.
I couldn't remember what inks had been used, so I played safe and coloured the image with my Karismacolor pencils, I haven't used these since buying Promarkers - but they were so nice to use again.
I used chalks to soften the image and DI Vintage Photo to distress the edges.
The sentiment is computer, as I always think of Daffodils and Easter.
We would love it if you could join us for this challenge, and if you take a look here, you will see what my creative  teamies have for your inspiration.

I am entering this at:
  4Craftychicks - Easter
  Crafty Creations - Easter
  Loves Rubberstamps - Easter
  ABC - Easter

I hope you all have a Happy Easter whatever you're doing.
