Scrapmagasinet Sketch Challenge

Hi, I'm back with my second post today for our Scrapmagasinet Sketch Challenge. My fellow DT member Heather has a fabulous sketch today and I loved all the layers in this one. Thanks Heather! I have used one of the new digi images from the set (It could have been) Love. My image is coloured with Prismas color pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. If you don't have any Scrapmagasinet stamps be sure to check out my store as I have a great selection of rubber, digi and personalised stamps. Also in stock are the popular Grab bags. Each time you join in our challenge you have a chance to win a great stamp prize too!

The pretty papers used on my card are from the new DCWV Garden party stack. I have used a Martha Stewart classic Butterfly punch (I've wanted one of these ever since seeing it used on my friend Lim's cards). The tabs have been created using the SU word window punch. The gorgeous flowers are prima hydrangea with Sonia rose centers. The corner swirl is from the Cuttlebug die set Vintage.



Be sure to check out the wonderful DT cards for inspiration.

Hugs,
