2 Sketches 4 You




This week's sketch on 2Sketches 4You has been set by Kazan Clark. I really enjoyed this sketch using my favourite colour scheme Black & White adding the red to zing it up a bit. The flourish has been stamped onto white card, cut out and mounted on 3D foam pads. The flowers were actually pink but I coloured them with a red inkpad and gave them some black dots with a Sharpie and the stickers were also stuck onto white card and cut out and mounted on 3D foam pads.

Papers: Pink Petticoat
Flourish: Rhona Farrer Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps
Flowers: Heidi Grace
Brads: HOTP
Sentiment: American Crafts Remarks Stickers

Just call me G said...

I so wish I had even half the creativity that you have... the card is beautiful and shows that by using fairly understated embellishments compared to some!!!! that a card that looks like it cost loads to make can be created....

I'm definitely going to be colouring my flowers in the future... they will be all dotted out!!!!
I'm going to practice cutting out stamped flourishes too.

BTW - I clicked from my link bar onto your blog Kath and was all confuddled ( doesnt take much) but once I spied all the males in your life I knew it was you had a blog furniture moving event!!
