Sketch Saturday

>> Sunday, 15 February 2009

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day. We had a lovely day (a rare Saturday off for Dave) and I was taken out for lunch as well as receiving two lovely boxes of chocolates.

I did manage to sneak an hour away to make a start on this card and I finished it off earlier today. I've flipped the sketch as I preferred my vertical panel on the left. All the papers are K & Co and I love their vintage feel. They are quite an unusual colour though, a sort of paprika with a bit of pink and some tiny blue dots. Much as I love my distress inks the colours are quite limited so I used Prismas for this card, added highlights with an Inkessentials pen and a little glitter to Chloe's hair bow. I used chalk to shade the background and stamped the swirl (a freebie with CM&P magazine) with Bark Versacolor ink. The brads are Lasting Impressions, the sentiment was a freebie when I bought some stamps from FunkyKits and the corner flourish is a Cuttlebug die.

Only a couple more days until the launch of the Truly Scrumptious Blog which is so exciting! Some of the DT have sent their pictures already and the cards are fab so I hope you will all join us on Wednesday!

These papers are so scrummy. They work so well with your image which you have coloured beautifully.
Looking forward to the launch of Truly Scrumptious (oh no... I'm singing the Chitty Chitty Bang bang song again!)
