A Challenge Card at Last and yet another Sneak Peek

Friday Sketcha


I have been so tied up with Commissions, Sneak Peeks, DT cards  and behind the scenes stuff that I just have not had time to enter any challenges or ink up any of my new stamps, so I decided to break the bonds and escape for just a few hours and make a card just for me.  Searching for a Challenge to enter I came across the sketch on Friday Sketchers and bingo I knew that was the one I would enter.


Friday Sketch


I have had this H&S stamp for Months and never used it and the backing papers have also been languishing in my Paper Stacks for a few weeks, the papers are from a Tilda 12x12 Pack called Angel Love from Panduro, the beautiful lace corner is also from Panduro.  I have distressed all the edges of the Paper and the image with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink then run Stardust Stickles all around them.  The Heart is a small Chipboard embellie that Ihave had for years, I painted it with Tim Holtzs Crackle Paint.  The Rose was made using the Large Sizzix Tim Holtzs Grunge Flowers  Die.

Todays Sneak Peek from the New Lili of the Valley release is called “Rosie with Cake”, if you are off to the NEC you have only a week to wait to give her a home!!!!

I am really sorry but I forgot to make a note of the Copics I used on this one.
