INSPIRATIONAL Card Sketches -DT Card




Hello everyone. Back to blogging and thoroughly enjoyed making this card for this weeks challenge over at ICS. A fantastic sketch for you to follow, hope you enjoy this one!
I used my new "Rain, Snow, Shine" - Anya Set from Tracy at Dies to Die For, she offers a fantastic service and her shop is well informed.


I chose to paper piece my Anya. All papers are Basic Grey "Sugared". The puddle and sentiment are both WOJ and all the detail has been coloured with Copics. Flowers are a mix from my stash and the border is a Martha Stewart punch. I coloured all the edges with a pink ind pad, just to give it some depth.


The insert is from my most used disc, "Designer Inserts Extreme". I love these inserts but I say that everytime I use it. You can see more details about this and the other discs available at the Bearly Mine Designs Shop. Hope you can play along with this weeks sketch, its a good'un and I just love sketches, especially when your mojo is on a go slow. Its great to see so many interpritations and we'd love it of you could join in to!
