I have had a few people ask me how I actually used the Sansador with the pencils. I am afraid to say that I do not have the time to fully explain at the moment but I will definately see if I can do it later in the week ...
Basically, I coloured with the pencils around the inside of the lines and dipped my paper stump into the Sansador. In a circluar motion in blended the colour into the centre of the image. I wanted the insides of the image ie. the duck's belly to be lighter as I think this gives it a better shape and not so flat looking. If I wanted colour the other way around ie. darker in the inside I would have coloured there and draged the colour out to blend. I did have to dip the paper stump into the Sansador quite a few times, I don't know if this is normal or not though. Also, just one more quick point, the Sansador did seep through the back of the card slightly so be careful of any nice surfaces! I did dry absolutely fine though. Like I said I will see if I can get a better explanation done later in the week if you would still like one.

Unfortunatley the following card cannot be entered into the challenge. It is from the very talented Kimmie but she is in Canada so isn't eligable, sorry Kimmie but I do LOVE your card! Kimmie did realise when sending it in but wanted to share the card with me and I want to share it with all of you as it is gorgeous!

Now your mission, should you choose to except it, is to make a new thank you card, one that has not been used in any other challenge. The closing date is Monday 14th January at 17.00 hours and the winner will be announced shortly afterwards picked for by my mum. I am afraid to say that what with being so busy at the moment this competition is open to UK and Ireland residents only, sorry. Only one entry per person will be excepted.
Up for grabs is a Doodlebug clear stamp set (I have this stamp set too and I love it!) called Teen Girl. Entries can be added to your Blog with a comment added here for me to look at or sent to me direct by going through my profile. I hope to get lots of entries and I hope you enjoy making your thank you cards. I still have quite a few to make!
