Truly Scrumptious Challenge #2

>> Wednesday, 4 March 2009

I can't believe it's time for our second challenge already! There were so many entries for our first challenge which was very exciting. This week there is another sketch for you to follow but we also want to see some handmade buttons on your card. This is the sketch for you to use:

And here is my card;

Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps (Christine Dark) is our sponsor this week and I've used one of her images 'Pretty Window' for this card. I coloured the image with distress inks and then cut a frame from a scalloped nestabilities rectangle. I cut another frame exactly the same size which I put on top with sticky fixers.

Tilda is coloured with distress inks and stuck to the raised frame. The DP is by Crate Paper and is actually the back of a doublesided sheet. I stamped some Inkadinkadoo flourishes with Versamark and then embossed with silver powder. The buttons are made from fimo clay. I used two colours, one of which has some glitter in. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

Remember you have two weeks to enter this challenge so pop over to the Truly Scrumptious blog now and take a look at the fantastic cards that the other DT members have created.
