Inspirational Card Sketches -DT Card


Hello again, sorry about the late posting of this card. I've been trying on and off all day but I just couldn't get the photo's to upload. Maybe my laptop has heatwave. Its another scorcher here today but I've been stuck indoors. Done 4 1/2 nonstop housework ready for a viewing, for him to be here for all of 5mins and most of the rooms he just poked his head round. So feel like it was a total waste of time and I am knackered. At least my house is gleaming of nothing else!

Today we see a new sketch over at the ICS challenge. Another fantastic sketch from Dawn. I inked up Tilda with Cat and coloured with Prisma Pencils and Sansodor. I just love using these pencils and I think I am getting better. Practice makes perfect I suppose.
The papers are BG Marrakech, just love the blue/orange combo, they blend so well together. Because the papers are quite fussy I chose to add just the flowers and centres for this card. No fancy borders or other embellishments, a case of less is more in this case. anyway, please do take a look at this weeks challenge and it would be great if you could join in to. The other DT's have great examples.




Squiggle stamps are our sponsor this week and there is a super prize up for grabs.
Would love to see what you come up with.
Have a lovely week and TFL!
