Friday Sketchers Challenge

Hi everyone! Hope you're all well and had a great weekend. Here is my first card of the week- it's for Friday Sketchers Challenge. Pop over to the blog and you'll see some great designs this week.

So for mine (sorry the picture is so pale, don't know what happened there!)- I used this new cutie Whipper Snapper stamp and coloured it in with a mixture of copics and watercolour pencils. The card is for a friend's little girl who is 1 next month. I double stamped the balloons so that I could 3d them and I masked out some of the detail on the stamp so that I could add a "1" on both of them which I did with a mixture of transfers and doodling around the edge.

I then cut out using nesties and layered up with Making Memories paper and added some embellies.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Whipper Snapper); Copics; Watercolour pencils; Paper (Making Memories); Nesties; Black fine liner, Transfers (?); Flower and button (Poppicrafts)

Here is the sketch (above) my card was based on by the Friday Sketchers team.

And finally I thought I'd show you this other card I made last month for my sis's birthday- I LOVE this paper, it's so pretty. My sis loves chickens so I knew this new stamp would be perfect for her. I coloured in with Lyra pencils and cut out with nesties. The paper is by My Mind's Eye and added pink hot fix crystals to finish.

Crafty stash: Stamp (Whipper Snapper); Lyra pencils; Nesties; Paper (My Mind's Eye); Hot fix crystals (Beadcraft)
