... has caused me endless problems this week!! The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge is one of my favourite challenges; it was one of the first that I joined. Initially I thought the sketch for this week was fine - but I've tried making a bag or two - they're in the bin!! I started on a card last night with a handbag as the feature - but it wasn't right and time was getting short, but I couldn't think what to do. So I decided to sleep on it.
And this morning I knew what I was going to make. I completely gave up on the idea of making a bag and decided to turn the sketch on its side and use the general layout in the design of the card. I think you can still see the shape in the card. While tidying up at the weekend I came across so many pretty papers (that I'd sort of forgotten). One of the paper sets had pretty pink flowers on it, so I decided to use roses and pinks. I stamped the medium rose and rose bud from Roses in Bloom, coloured them with Promarkers. I cut a couple of circles and ran one through my "bug" to add texture. For extra texture I added some lace and a beautiful hand crocheted flower sent to me by Sue Walsh - A Consuming Passion. I'm absolutely delighted with how this turned out.
