I had some time to play today while the kids were at school and there is a great sketch over at the Sugar Bowl by Lilian, and you know how I love sketches so I just had to have a go.
The "please include" this week is the colour 'kraft' or if you don't have any Kraft the you can use browns and creams. If you want to be included in the draw for the prize, you must include this along with the sketch.
I had so much fun making this card and I am quite pleased with the results too, although it looks a bit dark in the photo but it's pouring of rain here again, so had to take the photo inside and they never turn out very well when I take pics indoors. I don't have any Kraft paper so I used browns and creams which are all from the K&Co Earth Browns Mat Pad. I used my Sugar Nellie Daisy and Dolly stamp which I bought a few weeks ago but this is the first time I have inked it up. I still have two more that I haven't used yet so I will be using them over the next few days too. I coloured her with Copics in browns and creams to match the papers. I would normally reach for my pink markers but it's a nice change to do something different, and I quite like her like this.
I normally only use stamps for my main image and sentiment but I felt like playing with some of my stamps from an Inkadinkadoo set that I have only used 2 stamps from and there are 12 in the set! So I got them out and stamped on some of the papers and beside my main image.
I used cream pearl paint instead of pearls because I have ran out of cream and white pearls. I really like this stuff, it looks like pearls and lasts so much longer than the pack of pearls I normally buy and works out a lot cheaper too :) Only disadvantage is that you have to wait ages for it to dry.
The large flower is from a Cardology pack, and the others are all Primas. The lace and bead cap are both from my stash.
Well what do you think, not enough colour? Too much stamping?
Please do leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I have really been doing stuff out of my comfort zone lately but I am having so much fun so guess I should do that more often.
Bye for now
