Shaken Up...






A quick post today, as I'm using our laptop, & i'm not used to it, our PC is getting an upgrade & all my favourite programs are away!
This card was made for the new Stampotique challenge blog (thanks Sarah for the reminder) I did receive their newsletter announcing the new blog, but I read it, & put it away, & forgot all about it, so I missed the first challenge, but here is the second one & it's a colour challenge...
I started with a pale yellow card base (BB) adding some K&Co pp, the bow is a strip of organza fabric, & I used my spanking-brand-new labels 1 nestie (a new favourite!!!) The 2 Stampotique images were stamped onto some Darkroom Door film strips using some Archival ink, & coloured using some wc pencils. The sentiment is from a Darkroom Door word strip. Now I'll just have to link it up (fingers' crossed i can work it out LOL)

For those of you who may be interested I was born in Chile, the country that has been shaken by an earthquake of huge proportions, & I've been trying to get in touch with relatives, but until today the power had been down. I had received news that all our relatives are well, but more than that, my worry was for my parents, who have been holidaying there for the last couple of weeks, but they are both well, so I'm feeling very relieved right now.
I'm without my favourite photo editing program!!! So, excuse the photos : ) & excuse the fact that I don't know how to add the proper links : ( I promise to be back & fix everything as soon as my trusty PC is back in my arms :)
Until then, don't forget there's only a couple of days left to join in with INKURABLE STAMPERS monthly challenge, & also hop on over to DARKROOM DOOR, where Rachel is celebrating the release of some new products with a 15 day giveaway competition!!!
