FRIDAY SKETCHERS CHALLENGE NO. 51




My next card is for Friday Sketchers Challenge No. 51 - a Sketch from Carole. I have chosen another new stamp from Sugar Nellie called Country Style, and this cutie has been coloured with a combination of Art-Kure WC Brushes, and Sukura Gel Pens. The image has been cut and layered on green and brown card. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad called Archiac. For some added interest, I have done a little faux stitching around all of the layers. The swirls were done using two strings of self-adhesive flatbacked pearls, and twisted into the required shape. The card has been finished off with a stamped sentiment, some paper flowers with pearl brads, all from my craft stash. Many thanks for dropping by, and hope you have a great day!
