Sketch & Stash DT card #29

 



 Hi everyone, this is my DT card for the new challenge at Sketch & Stash which is being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps, they are offering one lucky person the chance to win a $15 voucher to spend at their store, so why not come and join in the fun?
The sketch is another fabby one by our own lovely Becky and I just loved working with this one, it is such a clean and simple style so your main image really stands out.
The sketch had such a fresh look to it, so I decided I wanted to use delicate colours and papers to compliment this, and keep it all as uncluttered as I could.
My new stash was this little rabbit from the House Mouse range (a RAK from my sweet friend Heather) I thought it was just the perfect choice for the focal point, isn't she adorable? Oh, and the liquid pearls that I've used for the centre of the flower and around the edge of the mat....bit more practice needed on this methinks!

Card Details:
* Image - House Mouse 'Fancy Pants'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and Distress Inks
* Papers - Papermania 'Exquisite'
* Everything else from my stash 

I hope you can find time to visit and join in and if you're in need of inspiration, don't forget to check out the other DT blogs, where you'll find oodles of gorgeous creations!

Chrissie, I want it - it's sooooooooooo cute!!! Think your idea of less bright colours for the papers worked as the picture stands out so much. Your text says a rabbit but the House Mouse image is adorable. Hope to get some of these stamps myself sometime this year. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Adorable little mouse Chrissie and I love the colours you have chosen. As for the liquid pearls - I've had several goes with them and can't achieve anything near as neat as your effort.
Guess you heard I'm the lucky winner from the last challenge. Yeah!
