Inspirational Card Sketches -DT Card



This weeks Inspirational Card Sketch is a fantastic sketch for you to work with. I looked threw a few Cricut Cartridges and cut this flourish from the Storybook cartridge. Tilda has been coloured with Copics, the papers are K & Co "Swell Noel" and have distressed both the bazzill and papers with a brown chalk in pad. Added jewels and a epoxy sentiment. Didn't want to smother this card as I felt the busy backing paper was enough for the eye.



This week Squigglefly is sponsoring the challenge and they have a prize of 3 images of the winners choice to offer one lucky person. Please do take a look at what my fellow DT's have made and I hope you can join us this week.

I have just got delivery of the SU Watercolour Crayons and Blender Pens. Wow, they work a treat and think this will be my colourng medium quite alot now. I've been experimenting with papers as I found that some will pile. I found that the Concord Record Cards work a treat. So my next post will be with this colour medium, oh, and watch out because I have BLOG CANDY coming this week!!!
TTFN & Thanks for Looking!
