Just come across a DT Call for Inspirational sketches and just had to enter. I love all the DT's I'm on and get such a buzz from working with the themes, but my one dream would be for me to be on a sketch DT. I love working with sketches. Its amazing how a few shapes can transpire into such beautiful cards. And know matter how detailed or not they may be, am always happy with the way my final pieces turn out.

So this is my card I am entering which was to follow a sketch. The image is Kadoodle, coloured with Copics and Prisma's. Did I mention how I love combining the two! Papers are from Ally Pally, they are My Minds Eye and I think are totally scrummy. Flowers are Prima. Sentiment also Ally Pally, Stampotique. I stamped onto matching paper and distressed the edge with a pair of scissors and went around edge with a fluid chalk ink pad. Used a Stipple brush around the edge of image as I felt it was a little too white so used a pink and green ink to blend. Martha Stewart punch and you see the stitched edge. Its a rub-on roller tape from Daisy D's. Another Ally Pally purchase but I must browse the web for more, they are beautiful.
Anyway hope you like my card and I hope Dawn likes it to. Will be back with my Secret Crafter Piece tomorrow. In the mean time, Happy Crafting to you all!
