Forget Me Not

Monday, 24 March 2014


I hope you're all well?  The weather here today is wild!  I nearly blew away when I got out of my car at work this morning, it didn't seem just as bad at home, but I suppose that's what you get when you work on top of a mountain! lol!
It's time for a new challenge today at Seems A Little Sketchy and we have a fab sponsor for you for this fortnight, with gorgeous images by Aurora Wings.
 They are offering a $15 voucher to one lucky winner!

Here's the sketch for you to follow for this challenge:

And here's what I did:

The image is by our sponsor, Aurora Wings and is called Forget-Me-Not.  I really enjoyed colouring her and I used the following Copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Lips;R21,20,00. Eyes;BV04,00,0000. Hair;E47,44,43,41. Flowers;BV04,00,0000,YG03. Dress;YG17,13,03. Background;V000.

The papers are Lillibet papers and they are textured like canvass so they are lovely!  I used a metal ruler to help me tear the top layer of card so as it wouldn't fray too much.  I used a truck-load of dies (OK, it's a very small truck!) Spellbinders circles, Impression Obsession; Rolled Roses, Memory Box; Chloe Stem & Cherry Blossom.  I added some swarovski's to the centre of the cherry blossoms (but as I cut them out of the lavender card I think I get away with them being forget-me-nots!) and some more diamante's to the head of the stem and the corner of the card.

The inside is fairly simple and uses a basic version of the sketch with the same papers and a computer generated sentiment using the font Angelina.

I hope you like my card and the fabby sketch - pop over to the Seems A Little Sketchy blog to check out some more inspiration from the rest of the DT and to join in yourself!
