Sketch Saturday Challenge



This week, Sketch Saturday have come up with a fantastic sketch which I just loved using. I used my new label nesties and stamped image from alota rubber, coloured with promarkers and added gems to the corners. The rubons are BG, flowers from stash and sentiment is SU along with the punches. The papers are Crate Paper, which are double sided. Already started another card with this sketch and am sure to use it again in the future. On another note, I received my MM Slice today. Postie was kind enough to leave it on my porch as I was out, he knows how I dont like waiting for new stash to arrive. Well, what can I say. Easy peasy, very simple set up and easy to use. I didn't like the idea of faffing around with putting the adhesive on the glass mat and waiting to dry so cheated and use my Crafters Companion repostionable spray. I only cut a few pieces just to test really but had no problems with the spray and the blade seemed fine, so may stick with this and see how it goes. Also received the Noteworthy cartridge as well. In comparison to the Cricut, the cartridges do not have half the amount on and I feel at around £32 are a bit pricey but the fact that I can have it sitting near me and its fully portable will make crafting so much easier, just need a few more cartridges as I would love to own some with flourishes.

What a gorgeous card Claire and fantastic photos too! I love how her legs go out, so like a child (makes me wonder how we can't do that as we grow old! My feet just fall to sleep if I sit on the floor lol!!)

Great card Claire, I have to agree with you Jo came up with a brilliant sketch for this week. Your marker colouring is fab (I still can't get to grips with mine) Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. My Rosabella fairy is not a stamp but if there is enough interest I may look into going 'digi' with her and all her fairy pals that are flying around in my mind :o)
Hugs

Sarah said...

lovely card as always.

I have a slice and would love to hear if you have any problems with it, Im not too keen on mine, the blade needed changing before I'd even used it as it ripped the paper up and the glue is too fiddly to keep having to reapply, I will have to buy some spray an have a go with that.
