Friday Sketchers



This week i took part in the

Friday Sketchers blog challange,

This week it's Sketch #8

See example ---->



I would of posted yesterday but when i had finished the card... i hated it, and decided to sleep on it to decide what to do.
This morning I looked at it with fresh eyes, and after a few tweeks and alterations i am now very happy and willing to share my effort for the challenge lol


Now i don't usually do cute... i know everyone seems to have gone Tilda mad, which is fine, but not for me, but when i saw the range by Rachel Ann Miller i couldn't resist buying just a couple. This is the first card i have made using my new stamps and i feel it may be a tad hard now not to purchase just a few more of these little cuties lol..

Anyway i have rambled enough...

To the making of it...

The image was stamped using a black archival ink and then coloured with Copic's, the papers are just a few scraps i had in a box. The fabby Flower, Butterfly & Heart are all stamps designed by the Fabby Hel's and soon to be available from The Artistic Stamper, (i believe some time in July... watch this space...) I used a pink archival ink and then clear embossed the images as the paper i stamped onto was shiny. Everything was assembled as per the sketch and finished with the wording and a few gems.

I hope it's ok
