Addicted to Stamps-sketch


Hi and welcome to our first sketch challenge at Addicted to Stamps. Here is the sketch that we'd like you to follow, although you can twist it around as you wish as long as the basic layout is there.





I have used a yellow base card and the white card I cut out a shape using Spellbinders label die and then a smaller one to mount in the centre. I cut two smaller ones again and matted them onto the same yellow card that I embossed first. The stamped images are by Chapel Art embossed in clear EP and inked over with Shabby Shutters DI. Green seam binding and some little punched flowers and leaves complete the card.


Pop over to Addicted to Stamps to see what the rest of the team  have produced there are some fabulous cards!
I do hope you'll join us this week, we love to see your entries and good luck with the challenge:)

Hi Valerie, Happy that you are getting loads of Charlie cuddles, very important!! LOL Hope your journey home was a good one:0)
Super card, I love your interpretation of the sketch and the very pretty spray of flowers. The yellow base is gorgeous. I'm afraid I would find this sketch very difficult, a few too many features for me :0)
The girlies arrived all bouncy, I'm hoping they sleep well, tomorrow we go to a friends farm for a picnic and to check out the cows being milked, forecast is for rain :{ Ah well wellies again LOL
Have fun my friend, hugs Gay xxx
