Wowsers just look at this months sketch from Iwona over at random acts of creativity -isn't it just gorgeous !
I will be stashing the sketch into the "fav sketches" folder on my desktop, yes this is def' one that will be used again and again - thanks Iwona x
Just click the picture to be taken to the sketch book Saturday post on Iwona's blog.
Here is the card I made using the sketch - I went for a more whimsy approach - only because I had this gorgeous Meljens digi coloured up and awaiting a project.
My papers are oldies from stash, they are (I think) forever friends (gingham) and K & Co (Pattern paper).
The image is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with diamond sparkles glitter (click for a closer view).
That gorgeous sentiment is from raindrop echo's Spring sentiments set and I coloured the card with the same pink promarker that I used in my image so it matches perfectly, then diecut it with a nestie.
I have had the fibres for as long as I can remember and when I saw them, them seemed just right for the feel of the card and the colours matched too. I added a hand rolled flower made with a scrap of card and added a little bow too (super girly fix - check !!)
Voila ! Hope you like it - now I have posted it I can see that I should have inked the edges of the paper or stitched the edges to soften the join but alas it is too late ! C'est la vie !
I would also like to add this card to the following challenges;
CES challenges - Mix & match
