Sarah Kay Challenge & Sketch Saturday Challenge

So here is a card I made at the weekend to take part in the Sarah Kay Challenge and Sketch Saturday Challenge. It's only the second time I've entered the Sarah Kay Challenge and my first for Sketch Saturday but I really enjoyed making this one. I do want to get more into doing some challenges.

So the theme for Sarah Kay Challenge week 17 this week is animals. I love the cute little doggie in this stamp!

And the sketch for Sketch Saturday Challenge week 22 is below:

I coloured the Sarah Kay stamp in using watercolour pencils and then cut the image out leaving a very fine line around it. Using my nesties I cut various circles out of paper and card and layered them up. The background paper plus the pink paper and polka dot paper were all free with a magazine from yonks ago. To make the upper strip I layered up the polka dot and pink papers plus some brown card. The lower strip is made from some unusual paper/material which I saved from some wrapping around some flowers my husband gave me. I then layered up 2 flowers with a tiny brad and added some gorgeous champagne coloured hot fix crystals. I'm really pleased with all the colours in this card!

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Sarah Kay); Watercolour pencils; Paper (free); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Flowers (Ebay); Brad (Woodware); Hot fix crystals (London Bead Co.); Flower wrapping (recycled)
