New stamp & distress markers

Good afternoon, hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday. I have managed to make a few cards and tidy up my craft room. Today I have a card to share with you made using a new stamp I got from My crafty heart she's called Alice. I love her !!! I intend to use her a lot....... I chose to colour her in using my new set of Tim Holtz distress markers. Not bad for my 1st attempt at using them. I used MME paper and again my stamping up punch & ticket stamp. Finished off with a spellbinders border.

I had lots of fun making this and can feel my mojo coming back. Have lots of crafty fun. 
Thanks for peeking & leaving comments, it means the world to me.
Take care , Elaine xxx
