Sketch Time at Craft Your Passion!

Morning Blogland,

How are you all doing on this Monday morning, I am not going to say lovely because it is probably not, the weather is horrendous today....

Well another week has gone and we have a new challenge starting over on Craft Your Passion, and this week we have a lovely sketch for you to play with.



For my card I used one of the sponsor images as we were lucky enough to get some to play with.
So I chose Steampunk Fairy and coloured her using my Promarkers....
I layered her onto a black oval which I have put a lace doiley around which I coloured using my Promarkers ( that was quite a job as the material didn't want to absorb the PM's so therefore you can some places see a few white spotties, which I am not too happy about, but it just didn't want to cover up)

The gears was cut out using my cuttlebug and a sizzix die.

Sweet Stampin' DT Card - Strawberries, Chocolate & Cream

Morning Sweet Stampers & Followers,
Yes you are right it is Saturday again, and it is time for a new challenge over on Sweet Stampin Challenge.


Our challenge this week has been chosen by the lovely Debbie and she has chosen a colour combo of Strawberry, chocolate and cream...how yummy!! 


Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Pollycraft.... 



who are offering one lucky winner chosen at random the choice of 5 digis!!

Paula gave the team some digis to play with so check out what my fellow teamies have made... 



Here's my Card:

I went for a Easel Shaped card as I haven't done one in a very long time, so I thought I will make one.
My Papers I have used is from a 6x6 paperstack from K&Company, I had these papers for a very long time, so I decided it is time to dig them out and put them to good use.
The paper lace borders was punched using my Martha Stewart border punch and the doily shape which the sentiment is layered onto is a Nellie Snellen frame which I cut out using my Grand Calibur



I then added some ribbon to the borders and the distressed roses has been handmade using a tutorial I found ages ago on Youtube, the two smaller brown flowers is from Wild Orchid crafts, lastly I added the leaves and  the pins to the arrangement and some glitter stickles to my sentiment.

My image is Sharing Sherbert Daydream from Pollycraft.
I coloured my image using my Promarkers and then added some glitter to the wings.

My easel card when closed.

I hope you all found something on here to inspire you today.
Thank you for taking a minute to stop by my blog. I always love reading your lovely comments.
