.... can be lots of fun, and save a bit of time too :) Since discovering challenges on the web, I do try to play a few (not as many as some mind!). However, I do find that sometimes it's difficult to get time to play in my craft room. Today is one of those days; I've only got an hour spare as I've got to prepare for our Scouts meeting tomorrow night.
So the challenges that I've combined are the sketch layout from this week's Mojo Monday, the colours from Just Us Girls (so pretty) and the spots 'n' dots theme from My Time to Craft.
The colours selected at Just Us Girls are really soft and pretty, but they've caused me some difficulties this week. I couldn't think of what to do. Then I remembered a lovely stamp that I have, but has only seen ink once!! Shame on me. I used London Fog to ink the image - much softer than black - and then coloured it with Promarkers. I've taken a bit of a liberty with the sketch, opting for a rectangular image rather than circular! The spotty backing paper is by Craftwork Card and I added some more dots with a piece of card which was embossed with Swiss Dots, and emphasised by distressing. I added a bright aqua ribbon. Finally, the two accent circles on the sketch - on my card are the little jewelled flower and birthday greeting.
