Cute Card Thursday/Friday Sketchers

>> Friday, 20 February 2009

Woo hoo! I won last weeks Friday Sketchers challenge! What a great start to the day.

I hadn't planned to make a card tonight but after making a cheesecake and a regular cake ready for when my parents visit tomorrow, I really wanted to get some ink on my fingers. This weeks Friday Sketchers sketch is nice a simple and really suited to just one patterned paper. I thought this BG 'Perhaps' paper was very Spring like and perfect for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge. I've used Tilda with Margarites, masked her and then stamped the fence. She's coloured with distress inks, H2O's (yellow flowers) and then my trusted tombow pens for the grass and to add a bit of shading behind her. I coloured her wings with my new glitter pen.

I added some Doodlebug flower eyelets but you have to look quite closely to make out the flower shape! The sentiment is from a Woodware set. And I've even managed to decorate the inside! Its pretty simple, just a piece of the same BG paper with a square of white card. I used my Martha Stewart lace doily punch on both and stamped a Woodware daffodil which I coloured with H2O's.
