Feeling Sketchy #122

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.  A very special welcome to my new followers .. so pleased and honoured that you decided to join me.

After being out of action for a few days due to a sore back (no more housework for me .. LOL!!! ..  I wish ..) yesterday I felt I needed some crafty time  and so I decided to join the Feeling Sketchy Challenge which finishes today.  I would have had this post up this morning but my monitor decided it didn't want to play and had to be re-calibrated so I could get my photos ready.  Hubby fixed it for me and then we had to go out so I thought I had missed the deadline.  Just checked it and I have an hour left .. talk about leaving it to the last minute!!  LOL!!  So here is the sketch ..

Sketch #122

.. and here is my entry

As you can see, I followed the sketch pretty closely.  The papers are from Kaisercraft's Antique Bazaar Mini Pad and I did a little stamping and also some stenciling with Distress Ink.

The large bloom is from Megs Garden.  It was originally white with blue edges and I had it sprayed for a previous project but hadn't actually used it.  It was perfect for this card.

The circles were made with some string and I also added some seed beads.

The die cut quote is from the same KC collection as the papers.  As is my habit, when it was all assembled, I added some random swipes of gesso.

Decorated the inside with some strips of the same papers and also added another quote from this collection.

And there you have it.  My entry for the Feeling Sketchy Challenge #122.  HERE is the link if you'd like to take a look at the next Challenge. 

Thank you so much for visiting and leaving me some love.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Take care and God Bless.

  9. You interpreted the sketch beautifully, Marg, and I definitely love the addition of the flowers as an element! I have come to love the style of NOT attaching all layers securely, but to let them bend, curl and raise just a bit here and there from the base. Well done!
