Daring Card Makers Challenge ~ Arrows

I made this a couple of weeks ago for a friend, and I am so pleased to have an excuse to give it another airing! It's one of my favourites, though I say so myself. It fits the new Daring card Makers' challenge posted today, which calls for the use of arrows.

The arrow I used here was painted with fuchsia pink acrylic paint, then I dotted it with white Sakura Soufflé pen.

It was the first time I had used a Sarah Kay stamp, and I loved her, so will definitely be re-visiting this stamp again in the near future!


  1. gorgeous- must get some of those stamps- am i allowed to guess the blog candy word thingy?
    Have now taken another couple of photos if you want to see if they are any better!maybe should have had some booze before taking them

  5. Hi Christine!

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I decided to come track you down to thank you.

    I appears you are very talented! Your card is simply precious. Lucky is the one to be on the receiving end of it. I am so busy designing I don't get much time to actually MAKE layouts and crafts LOL! An vicious cycle.

    I hope you have a good day, and thanks for sharing.
