Friday Sketchers

Hi everyone. Hope you're all enjoying your Sunday. I haven't had a chance to do much crafting this week as my Mum's been ill so I've been staying at her's looking after her. I'm exhausted really and not feeling that great myself! Anyway, I have at least managed to do a Friday Sketchers Challenge which is the above sketch by Claudia Rosa.

So here is my take on the sketch- yes, I know it's another Stamping Bella! This time it's Huggybellas. I love them!! They are coloured with watercolour pencils and double mounted on card and paper. The papers are all by Basic Grey and the sentiment is by Hero Arts. The 2 circles are cut out using nesties.
Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella and Hero Arts); Watercolour pencils; Papers (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Flowers (Poppicrafts); Brad (Poppicrafts); Hot fix crystals (London Bead Co.)


I decided to do a bit of a close up because I think it's often hard to see the detail on my colouring because I use watercolour pencils and the effect can be quite subtle. So you can expect more close-ups in future!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend x

Love the card, I know what you mean about watercolours, I use the same and they don't seem to show up as well as they actually are on photographs.
