Penguin Party!

Monday, 9 December 2013

Hello everyone!
I hope you're all keeping well?
I've been busy doing this and that and not really noticing what's being done - do you ever have days like that?

We have a new challenge for you today at Seems A Little Sketchy and our fab sponsor for this fortnight are Delicious Doodles!

Here's the sketch we would like you to follow this time, remember you can rotate or flip it as long as we can see the layout in your work.

So I seem to have had a thing for black and white this year, I've done a lot of cards in that theme and this one seemed to want to go along with that theme too!  Here's what I did...

The DT got to work with some of Teri's fab images from Delicious Doodles and I chose this one so I didn't even have to do any colouring!  It was a good thing as I'm back at physio for my shoulders so the pain is actually even worse from doing the exercises, hopefully it'll get me back to my old self though.
I love the sketchy look of this image!

The papers are Pink Petticoat; Large Nordic snowflakes and Pinstripes, printed in black.  The dies I have used are Joy Crafts/Noor Designs Winter wishes border and large snowflake.  The sentiment is from the Seasons Greetings set by Whiff of Joy and I used the matching fancy shape die to cut it out.  The ribbon, photo corners, Swarovski (the large one in the centre of the snowflake) and gems are from my stash.

The inside matches the front using the same set of sentiment stamps, just not cut out this time.

I hope you can join us with this fab sketch, check out the rest of the DT's fab work at Seems A Little Sketchy!
