3 Challenges!

Hi. I've been really busy trying to do my card orders this week which has been good as it's kept my mind occupied though I have had to rush them a little bit which I hate doing. As I've had so many orders to do I thought I might as well try and enter some challenges at the same time so here we go. This first sketch is by Dawn over at Inspirational Sketches Challenge.

I made this card as an order for my Mum's hairdresser who's birthday it is. I thought it looked quite hairdressery so was quite apt! The image is Stamping Bella Ohsoprettyabella and is coloured in with watercolour pencils. I paper pieced her trousers. I added some doodling around the edge and then cut out with nesties. The paper is all Basic Grey layered on assorted cardstock. Finally I added some hot fix crystals, a giant brad and sentiment.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); Watercolour pencils; Black fine liner; Nesties; Paper (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Hot fix crystals (London Bead Co); Brad (Poppicrafts); Sentiment (Craftwork Cards)
