Sketch Saturday

A very good Monday morning to all you lovely bloggers out there & I hope you've all had a fab weekend & are now refreshed & prepared for the week ahead.
I have decided to start off the week with a new challenge... this time it's one set by Tracie over at Sketch Saturday. Quite relieved actually that it's a nice easy one to break me into this challenge site and I must admit that as soon as I saw the sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
You see when it was my birthday, I received the most wonderful stash of goodies from my blogging buddy Tracy & her amazing daughter Holly. Sadly I have not had the time to play with them until now so here goes...

Covered some cardstock with paper then doodled around the edges, then attached a white border, another on top of that created with my Fiskars Threading Water punch & finally some ribbon then attached 2 flowers with some card candy for the centre.

Next up, some matting & layering... white card, then paper, then more white card with my stamped image.

I wanted my image to be bright & funky so I opted to use my Sakura Souffle for the colouring & then to re-highlight areas of stamped image outline that I had accidentally covered with my souffle pen, I used my Pigma Micron pen. Finally some more doodling around the edge, then it was mounted using 3d foam.

On either side of the image I placed 3 pieces of card candy as per the sketch.

Papers : K&Co

Image, ribbon & flowers : Tracy & Holly

Card Candy : Craftwork Cards

Souffle & Pigma Micron Pens : Sakura

Well I now have to see if I can find any more challenges to be getting on with today.

Have a Fab Monday and I'll be back again tonight.
