Morning folks,

I am here today with my card I made for Allsorts Challenge....yes I have been asked by the lovely Brenda to take a guest spot, today being one of them.

The theme is to use your favourite stamps or I do have many favourite stamps so it was a hard decision on which to use but eventually I decided on this little leaf stamp from Simon Says Stamp - Be kind. I do love it, it's so simple to colour.  Today I stamped and coloured with watercolours, I did use blue and green and then tried marbling them a bit and I also added in a bit of silver watercolour...its hard to see that in the photo.  I added some shading around the leaves and some splodges and sequins.  Oh I saw a card that had a wee paper strip which I thought was quite funky so I added the stripey paper to finish off.

Pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams cards.

Glad to have you as a guest designer this week, Fiona. Your card is absolutely stunning and I can see why you decided on this stamp as your favorite, even though you had many to choose. It's so pretty and delicate! I love it!

This is just lovely Fi! I really like the little leaf image and you've coloured it beautifully! The background goes perfectly with the leaf - love the combination of splatters and sequins and dots with the black and white strip. Vicky x
