Another sketchy ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was good and your week has started well. I can’t believe how quick this month has flown by! I’m also somewhat surprised at the amount of cards I’ve created this month too, lol, oh well next month I will try to create less cards and more other type of projects lol! Here is my card … 

Another square card
Lots of lovely texture and depth
All the yummy details
I managed to capture some of the shimmer

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #456 B is for Banners, Birds, Blossoms & Branches
Ally’s Angels Challenge #3 Stitching Faux or Real: I opted for faux
Deep Ocean Challenge #175 Cute & Cuddly
Double D Challenge Woodland Creatures

Scrapy Land Challenge #84 Anything Goes I used Tutti Designs dies

This time I rotated Paperbabe Stamps sketch by 45 degrees so that the background detail was in the bottom right hand side of the card. I made sure there were still details top left and bottom right hand side. I added the sentiment to my main panels and I used three of those to give a different layout and look, like I was matting and layering but each one was off centre slightly, I like the look and will be trying that out again in future.

I used snippets for the stamped roses and a snippet that was left over from an A4 masterboard I created. The lovely lush colours are just yummy and I couldn’t bear to pop it in my recycling bin lol! The stamping was done with a mixture of Distress and Distress Oxide ink pads and I have to admit I am loving the way these ink pads layer and give different degrees of colour. 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 soon ttfn Karen x
