Sketch Saturday

Morning everyone,

Jo over at Sketch Saturday has an awesome sketch on her challenge blog this week and is also looking for DT members, so I thought I would give it a try.

You had to make 2 projects using the same sketch, one Christmas and one anything you like, so here are my two cards

Birthday card
  • Image: Sweet Ebony from Sugar Nellie
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Paper: MME
  • Flowers, brads and ribbons from stash

Christmas card

  • Image: hAngler
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Paper: K & Co
  • Sentiments: Royal blush bubble stickers
  • Flowers, brads, ribbon and snowflake buttons from stash

You will notice that I have used Promarkers! yes I finally was able to buy some, only a few :( and I absolutely love them, they are so easy to use, quite a change from 'painting' everything with my Marvy pens. I haven't been able to do the shading quite as well due to the lack of pens, but I think I did ok for a first attempt. It's not long till my birthday.....I know what I'm asking for!! Thanks to Fran for the help and advice and the wicked tutorial.

Anyway, enough waffle, thanks for stopping by, have a super day
