Inspirational Card Sketches - 1st DT Card



Today is my 1st day as a new DT Member over at Inspirational Card Sketches and what a fab sketch to kick off with. I made his whole card with 1 sheet 12 x 12 Paper and some Bazzill. Its an A5 card which is not my norm but I do like a few large cards amongst my 6 x6's. The image is again "Princess Emma" from Whimsy Stamps, she is newly released so you really need to get over to the Whimsy Shop and see these and the other gorgeous stamps Denise has just launched. 


Colured Emma with Promarker for the skin & then Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and Sansador, went over random parts with a Promarker after the pencils, I normally use pencils ontop to shade but this really brings the pigment out of the pencil. The house,dragonfly and heart are buttons from "Dress It up" and the text "Dream" is S/A felt letters. Swirl and leaf punches and a couple of mixed flowers from stash. Part of Emm'a dress has had "Gold Smooch" painted on. I just love smooches and the cute little bottles they come in. Got all 8 now, just waiting for them to bring out a pink. Anyway, please come and support me in my new role and play along with this weeks sketch if possible, you could win a prize and we all love free stash dont we!!!!!
Apologies, I have not been blog hopping so much over the last few days. I blame the sunshine myself but all downhill from tomorrow so no excuses aye.
