ICS DT Card


Dawn has come up with a fantastic sketch over at this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches and I couldn't wait to have a go at this one. I rotated the sketch, which I dont normally do but it worked for me in this instance and am pretty pleased with the outcome.
Used Gorjuss from Set 2 and coloured with Copic Marker Pens and Shimmerz Paint. The papers are We R Memory "Tiffany". I have use both the Martha Stewart Lattice Border and Butterfly punches. Lace. Pearl Beads, flowers from stash and the sentiment is a strip from the same paper pack.


This is another insert from "Extreme Designer Inserts" available at Bearly Mine Designs. Choosing a colour to match just isn't a problem as there are so many colourways to choose from and they can be resized simply but dragging to your chosen dimensions.

Please do come join us at this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches, we have a great prize up for grabs and as usual the rest of the DT have come up trumps again!

Thanks for looking!
