Sketch n Stash.....


Well the weather man was right for once its a bank holiday and its raining, shame for everyone who were planning to take their families out as most things are outdoors.Personally I don't mind as I don't feel guilty heading up to my play room for a day of crafting now, just wish I could have got in the garden to weed the last border before they all take over.....ohhhh well they'll still be there for me another day.
Today sees the start of another challenge at Sketch n Stash and this weeks sketch is by our fellow teamie Kevin ....and this week Jill is sponsering the challenge and the lucky winner gets the sweet stamp featuring the art work of Faye Whittaker.


.

For my card I've used one of the Teddy Bea images called Ballerina Bea.....this time I printed the image onto linen effect card, actually truth be known it was a mistake but instead of discarding it I tried colouring it with prismas and a blending pen, it coloured great so I'm going to do this again as I love the texture of the fininshed image. Because the colour sits ontop of the texture of the paper you have to gently work it into the background as well......if that makes sense.
The papers are from First Edition......talking of papers I've just been on abit of a spend buying the new Prima paper pads.....some lovely vintage ones (I so need therapy for my paper addiction).




Challenges
Cutie pie.....favourite stamp

Have a fabbie Bank Hoilday even if it is raining.

Hi Daniele you made three wonderful cards (meaning this one and the other two below)! i have lost my mojo... haven't crafted in days, and if I do, I don't like it at all, it's a terrible feeling...anyway, just wanted to visit you to let you know that I haven't died :o)
Hugs, Alessandra
