Sketchabilities 57

Over at Sketchabilities there challenge is to follow a sketch using 3 photos!!! Eeks not done one of these before!  So this is what I came up.

It's been a long time since I've done a scrap page of hubby Steve but I liked the flow of photos taken of him in the giant chess garden at Burton Agnes a few months ago.  So out came some papers from My Limited Edition kit and I set to :O).

I've used my Martha Stewart trellis punch, all 3 sizes of my trusty EK Success flower punches, leaves from a sizzix  die, scalloped circle and a few pearls for the middle of the flowers.

Thanks for looking

As soon as I saw this sketch I couldn't wait to join in with the card challenge over at Hannah & Friends!  Love it and already using it again to make a vintage card!  And I got to use my first digi stamp Penny from Saturated Canary !!

I have used 2 of the papers by  My Minds Eye Lost & Found 'Blush' available from Grimsby Crafts - these have to be my favourite todate!!  Penny has been coloured in with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansodor, the border is a Magnolia lace edging diecut, flowers and pearls are from my ever increasing stash - think thats everything :O)

Sketches in Thyme Design Team Call

Decided to try and enter the DT call over at Sketches in Thyme - know there are so many talented scrappers so not holding my breath :O).  Enjoy scrapping so much thought it was worth trying for.

Again the challenge is a sketch, I have used a black and white photo of my lovely daughter Viki, my title is My English Rose because to me she is and here is my take on it........

I have used papers from the IMAGINATIONS range and distressed the edges with a pair of scissors.  I have used my Weathered Clock die by Tim Holts, a Martha Stewart round the edge punch, some flowers that were in my Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook and ribbon and lace that have been in my stash for ages!!  Oh and a very lush diamante flourish that I cut into 2.

Think that is my final post for today lol.  Thanks for taking the time to look

Time for Magnolia Mania

Its not often that I get the time to play with any stamps but yesterday saw me inking up a couple of stamps that were new or just a fave. 

Over at Magnolia Mania the challenge was again to follow a sketch so here is my take on it......

Tilda was coloured in with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador.  The papers are by Girls Paperie available at The Hobby House.  I have used the Tim Holtz die - Weathered Clock, EK Success flower punch, Sissix flourish dies and the sentiment is by Inkadinkadoo.

Thanks for lookings

Time for a challenge at Zoe Bunny Crafts

A few posts today from me as yesterday was my day for playing :O)

This is a card made for Zoe Bunny Crafts which was to follow a sketch by Debbie.  Here is my take on the sketch....

I have used my new Gorjuss girl stamp which I bought a while ago from Grimsby Crafts and only just got round to inking up - she was coloured in with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador.  The papers are the hello luscious range by Basic Grey which were distressed with a pair of scissors, flowers punched with EK Success, Nellie Snellen flourish die cut and the sentiment by Kaisercraft.

Thanks for looking
