Morning everyone!

Its a Tiddly Tuesday Challenge and a new Passion for Promarkers challenge for me today and ooooh boy was this one a scary one for me!!

Why?? because our lovely Shelly on the PFP team chose us a a challenge of ..
Lovely Lilacs and Lemons.

Crafty Sentiments are sponsoring us tomorrow and they are back to doing digital images so our prize this week is 3 digis

and the Tiddly Inks challenge is something I am waaaaay more comfortable with, he he he!!! its...

Grab your favourite Tiddly Inks stamp or digital image and add a charm to your make!
(**remember...We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc 
but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image to be eligible for the prize**)

So choosing my image was super easy, I rushed out to grab my Semi Sweet clear stamp set and got busy placing her on a die cut circle. I also bent the skully border to the shape of my circle and stamped it all around the edge, I used London Fog memnto ink so I could get that light grungy kinda feel.

But the colours..oh my...there was my heart attack!! I never use these colours much...let alone together!! but I braved it! then it was time for a good old distressing so I scrunched up my pretty circle, then unfolded and inked it, then ironed it flat!! there's also some cool crackle glaze on there but I can't get it to show up in a picture!! story of my life!!!
Then I added a rose that I coloured up with my lilac promarker ( I often buy white ones so I can just match them in with my pen choices!! 

I added my skully charm onto my pin and heartlessly stabbed it through....carefully pushed it through my rose and glued the little arrangement on.

The little ticket is one of the sentiment that come with Semi Sweet, I LOVE IT!!! so in the end my make felt like me!! so its ok to step out of that colour comfort zone peeps......for like 5 minutes!!!!!!!

Thank you for popping in on me!
