For a sketch challenge ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was good. I’ve popped on to quickly link a card I created especially for some challenges. I am wrecked from my weekend jaunt and my project isn’t finished so I won’t be able to share that with you for a couple of weeks. As wrecked as I am I really had an awesome time and I learnt a lot, and I do mean a lot. Anyways it will probably be a couple of weeks before I can finish my project so I won’t talk any more about that for now. Here is my card …
Another A6 card and good to post
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Inspired by Stamping Challenge IBSIC#95 I used the colours and sketch
Because I have had my H2O paints out for my stamping projects I decided to play with them on black card, for a change, and I remembered something while painting the card and that is that I don’t like H2O on large black blocks/shape much. They work beautifully for stamping, painting and fussy cutting individual images and the colours really pop beautifully. But I don’t like them used on a bigger piece. It’s a shame I didn’t remember that from the last time I used them on black; mind you that was over five years ago lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this coming week.
I never know what to say or whether to refer to disasters in real life but it seems so many lovely innocent people lost their lives whilst on holiday. I hope no sadness comes the way of any of my lovely friends or family of those lovely friends. It is just shocking and so very, very sad and pointless.
Look after yourselves my lovelies: you are so very precious to me ttfn Karen x
