A Skunk and a Fairy



Friday Sketchers

have a brilliant sketch by Bea for us this week, Bea it was great to work with thanks so much. To check out the sketch and to see the inspiration provided by the great and talented Dt just click Here



When I first saw this sketch I thought it wasn't for me I don't do tearing No!No!No!
but then I remembered someone had told me ages ago that if you were unsure about tearing just lay a metal rule on the paper and tear against the rule, Voila it worked he!he! I have just received my stamps from the lovely Denise of
Whimsey Stamps, and I couldn't wait to ink up this supercilious Little Skunk, look at that smug look on his face. He has been coloured with Copic Markers and the base card cut on the oval nestie. Thr papers are BG. The ribbon is from Poppicrafts and label is SU, buttons and pearls from stash. I have run a brown chalk eye pad around the outside of all the papers and tied a knot on each button with raffia.


As this is a mans card I have tried to keep the inside quite plain will add a verse later when I know who it is for.

Oh I see.... I was looking for a 'skunk-fairy' interesting concept. But I much prefer the two beautiful cards you have created. The sketch made my Bea is fantastic and it's great to see some sizzix originals on a card. I've got loads and never seem to get them out these days.
Bravo for two beauties.

Jacqui, that little skunk is just too "stinkin" cute (pardon the pun but I couldn't resist lol). I's so with you on the tearing bit babes, all I could manage was two little V's and even that gave me the heebie jeebies lol. Fabulous colouring and super yummy papers.
