Project: A tropical card for Sketch Saturday

Welcome to another fun week at Sketch Saturday! Here's our sketch: 

This week our sponsor is Scribbles Design and I thought it'd be a cheerful start to this January day to use their tropical drink image. 

I colored it using Spectrum Noir pencils and then die cut it out using spotted border dies to give them a but more texture. I used an arrow paper clip for the starburst in the sketch and the strip along the top is a washi tape border I have that I thought matched the yellow in the spotted paper (ancient from my stash and I love it used here). The sentiment is such fun, I got it in a set last year and just thought it was perfect for this image. 

Hope you have fun playing along with us!

Project: A heart challenge for Moving Along with the Times

Hello and welcome to another fun challenge at Moving Along with the Times! We have a heart theme this week so it should be fun to play along with. 

I decided to modify one of my favourite Bugaboo images. Normally the mouse is chasing a balloon but I used a stitched heart die instead. Look at his little face! Such joy! 

I used ProMarkers to colour him in and then die cut him out into the circle so he could pop out a bit against the background. I used a giant background stamp to get the irregular dots using a splash of water over distress ink to make them a bit whispery. 

The sentiment is an ancient one and I kind of wish I had made it pop out more but never mind! 

Hope you have fun playing along this week!

Project: A dino-mite sponsor for Sketch Saturday

Happy new year everyone! 

First post of the year and I'm delighted to be playing along with this week's post on Sketch Saturday, a layout designed by the one and only Claire Grantham

Our sponsor provided this adorable dinosaur hatching image and so I coloured him using Spectrum Noir pencils then used a mix of patterned spotted papers from my stash for the background and banners. The sentiment is one from my collection that I wanted to use, I thought the big text worked really well in the space. The strip of half beads is from Poundland, I love how toy-like they are, the matte-effect I think makes a good alternative to pearls or bling. 

Hope you enjoy playing along this week!
