Taylored Expressions Sketch #122

Hey everyone!

Can you believe it?? I am blogging a card that I made just to make it!! LOL! Don’t get me wrong I love being a part of the Inkspirations Design Team. It is just fabulous and it is the reason I have been making any cards of late. It’s just great that I could blog more than once this week! LOL! So I chose the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge

Here is Taylor’s sketch

and my submission

The photo does not do it justice, it looks pink but it is Rose Red. One of those colours hard to photograph just right. I do sort of like this card, maybe a little to pink!! LOL! But it did give me the chance to play with my watercolour crayons. I am doing a class on this technique next Thursday, so I needed to re-hone my skills on the subject! Inspired by Nature is the perfect SS to do this with too! After stamping I used my aqua painter to blend it further. I then used the crayon to outline a little of the flower and put the spots on the butterfly.

Well I am in the mood to create some more! So I might get to it before it passes………….whoops too late! Just kidding! 

Thanks for dropping by!

Inkspiratons Sketch Challenge #33

Hey everyone!

It’s Friday and that means Inkspiration time. I love it as it is taking me away from the fundraising organising. There is so much to do but I love to take a break every now again! LOL! Okay this week it is of course the Sketch challenge and when I first saw it I thought ‘Bugger, I don’t have the oval Big Shot Die’. But I had a template from another project I made quite a while ago and I used that! Tricky hey??

Here’s the sketch

and my creation

I love garden scenes on oval shapes. Not sure why…..just do! LOL! As you can see I pulled out my old favourite …Pocket Silhouettes and of course another set that goes so well with it, Flight of the Butterfly! Upsy Daisy is also in the mix. I LURVE these sets. They have been well used and of course still stamp beautifully!
