Desert Island Crafting

This is a Mid-Way reminder at Stamping Sensations and this month I have chosen the theme and it is "Summer Colours" and I also did this  sketch:-

Added link to the post with bigger picture
 If you take a look at the DT's interpretations of my sketch you will see how my sketch can be used, they have all done such a fabulous job with it and all so different too.

So for a change we have decided to do a Desert Island Crafting, where we pick six items we would take to our Desert Island, we will all take a turn each month, and I'm up first.

My six essential Desert Island crafting items are:-
1) Colouring Medium (we are allowed 5 colours) - Distress inks - Brushed Corduroy, Stormy Sky, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed.

I chose distress Inks as I can use them to colour images and to ink around edges, and as a versatile colouring medium I can mix colours to make colours, hence my colour shade choices.

2) Guillotine - I'm a bit of symmetrical person and have to have straight lines

3) Collall - all purpose glue - it just sticks anything and could complete a full card using that as the only adhesive.

4) Flower Punch - being partial to my handmade flowers on my cards one of these would be a must for me to embellish.

5) Stickles Diamond Dust this is my favourite and I love my sparkle

6) A set of House Mouse stamps - they are my all time favourite stamps

In addition we are all allowed 50 sheets of cardstock of our choice 
I would choose 25 sheets of white as I could colour stain them with inks, then 25 sheets of assorted pastel colours as I like pastels best.

I know I'll have forgot some kind of essential

A gorgeous card, Tracy, and I enjoyed reading about what you would take to your desert island. I am definitely going to have to check out collal glue and I will have to get my thinking cap on for the rest!
