Friday Sketchers Challenge


This is my first entry for the Friday Sketchers Challenge. This sketch is no. 28 and has been designed by Mumur from France.

So here is my entry. The image is Stamping Bella which I coloured with watercolour pencils. All the papers were in a Papermania set called Retro, as were the little flower embellishments and the sentiment. I added gems onto the flowers and on the small flowers I mounted the stickers on card and then cut them out so they popped a little more. I inked all the papers with Vintage Photo ink just to make them tie together and to give a little distressed look.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); Papers (Papermania); Embellishments (Papermania); Sentiment (Papermania); Gems (Lakeland); Ink (Ranger)
