TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS CHALLENGE NO. 3




Hello crafters, hope you are all well, I have a few posts today, so I will start off with a card for Truly Scrumptious Challenge No. 3 - a Sketch with a twist - put something shiny on your card - maybe some mirri card or a charm - anything that would attract a magpie's eye. So I have chosen a Sugar Nellie stamp from the Leanne Ellis Collection called "Wish". She has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens, and her wings glittered. I then masked her off, and chalked the background, and also stamped a few swirls randomly around the edges. For a little added texture, I also put some Glossy Accents on the words "Wish". The image was then layered on brown and pink card, and also some mirri card. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad called "Sultry", two of the elements of the Sketch have also been layered on mirri card. A small strip of Pink card was punched with a Fiskars Paper Punch, and to finish the card off, a stamped sentiment, some ribbon, an organza bow, and some pink gems, all from my craft stash.
