Sunday Challenge on Dotties World

Its my turn to set the challenge over on Dotties World and I apparently put everyone out of their 'comfort zone' well not everyone lol.
Got checkout the amazing cards, coz if thats out of their 'comfort zone' you'd never know to look at the cards they are amazing!!
My challenge is Hand Made-
I want it all hand made, if you use coloured backing paper i want you to make it, by stamps or ink pads and if you use embellishments I want you to make them.....
For my card, I again used my brayer and Adriondack ink pads, which are available at Charmed cards and crafts, I used some un-mounted stamps for the bamboo and script, all the backing papers and landscape are made using inks and torn strips of card i used as templates, with a cirlcle cut out of a piece of paper for the sun template.
The image is the gorgeous oriental one from 'Holly & Madison on tour' which I colour with copics.xx

Was I a naughty girl for using brads!!! EEK! If so SORRY!

This is fabulous Nicola, I think I would have felt very daunted by this technique but it looks stunning!

Love Dingle.xx

This is a BEAUTIFUL card!! I haven't tried the brayer technique yet, but it looks like I will have to very soon!! Thanks for the challenge, it was really enjoyable and I also kept reaching for the ready made embellishments and then remembering I couldn't use them!! katxx
