Sketch Saturday #37- DT week



Well, as the name suggests its DT this week over at Sketch Saturday and this week is the turn of none other than my lovely friend and fellow DT member Jeanette . Isn't this sketch amazing???....she says it's her first ever, but I think she's been practising on the sly.....lol!!....only joking sweetie.

This week we have also been very kindly sponsored by Denise from Whimsy Stamps and the prize on offer is two of her gorgeous new designs....hop over to the blog for all the details and to take a peak at the fabulous DT work.

Again, huge thanks to everyone who took part last week, another fantastic response.

Here are the details
  • Image: Sweet and Sassy from Sugar Nellie
  • Paper: s.e.i. and Coredinations CS
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Flowers, brads and sentiment tag from stash

I half stamped the image a la Rach (thanks for the inspiration hun) and coloured it using the blending technique. The fancy circle was cut with my new scissors, one curve at a time....it wasn't time consuming at all lol!!....but I love the effect and I think it looks pretty good, considering the scissors are straight and I was cutting a circle!!!!

That's all for today, off to work for me in a few hours, hope you all have a fabby day...thanks for stopping by

This is just lovely!! I love the way you have half inked your image. Great idea as most of my stamps are too big for the circle. Love your colours too. Hope the ebay selling goes well. Let me know how you get on!!! I used to sell a lot through ebay but found the fees were too expensive. I really hope it goes well :)
