Sketch #5 - 28th June

Thank you again for the continued support to the ladies who took part last week, I hope you like my sketches, I know I like looking at your work and how you interpret the sketch each week.

Here is week 5's sketch...

I chose to make a christmas card this week, I have used my Rubber Stampede 'Santa collage' stamp as the main image, I love this image!
I also chose to use my new Stamps Away 'Dec 25th' stamp, which I bought from Sassy Crafts, you can find the stamp HERE, altho I do urge you all to look at the rest of Sassy Crafts store, for fabulous products, excellent prices and a first class friendly service!

Sketch #4 - 21st June

Thank you ladies once again for taking part and producing your lovely cards xx
Here is this weeks sketch...

Remember, you can rotate or resize any of the elements within the sketch if you wish to.

Here is mine, as you can see I rotated the sketch by 90 degrees.

I have used plain papers in assorted earthy metallic colours, the image is from Penny Black and is called 'Best of Luck!' (I think its called that anyway, I just have the image not the stamp). The sentiment is hand-written.
Can't wait to see what you do with the sketch! :)

Sketch #3 - 14th June

Thank you once again to everyone who took part last week, it's so lovely to see the different styles of crafting that we have, we can drool over some of the gorgeous papers and embellishments used, and then add them to our own wish lists ;)

Week 3, and here's this weeks sketch...

... and here is my card, I can't remember where I got the paper with the flowers on but I do like it and it goes lovely with the rusty pickle 'wedding mint' paper strips that are beneath the sentiment, it was the rusty pickle paper that inspired me to draw the image, which I drew with pencil, coloured with brush markers, then outlined to make the image 'pop out' a bit more.

I'm looking forward to seeing what your take on this sketch will be :)

Sketch #2

Firstly, many thanks go to Carolann, Karen, Tina and Sian for joining in with sketch #1. You made wonderful cards and I really appreciate your support, thanks ladies! xx

Alrighty then!... onto sketch #2...

In this sketch I haven't added a specific section for a sentiment, of course if you wish to add one then please do, and you can of course rotate the design and/or resize any of the elements if you wish to, as long as the original layout is noticable.

Can't wait to see what you do this week! :)

Here is a card I've made following the sketch...
Thanks go to my friend Storm for the lovely Tilda image which I've coloured with watercolour pencils, the patterned papers are from Paper Cellar (via Ideal World) and are from their 6x6 wedding selection book of papers.
