Sketch n Stash DT cards - Challenge #53

Hi everyone, it's time for the next Sketch n Stash challenge, how quickly did those 2 weeks go?
What do you think of our new look blog, isn't it gorgeous? It's all thanks to the wonderful Angie for designing our new header and blinkies and of course, our own lovely Lizzy for setting them up.

You certainly made some wonderful cards again for the last challenge, so if you joined in don't forget to see who the winner of the Simon Says Stamp prize was and we'll be selecting our new DT members too.

This week we have another fabby sketch by Jill and we have TWO wonderful sponsors Pollycraft and Just Some Lines, please do check out their shops, you'll be spoilt for choice!
Now as both of these companies create such gorgeous images I decided to make two cards this time, using one image from each company.
 My first card uses Pollycraft's cute 'Jenson' image, doesn't he look like he's having fun on his skateboard?

Card Details:
* Image - Pollycrafts digi 'Jenson'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'For Him'
* Punch - MS Double Scallop
* Everything else from my stash
 My second card uses Just Some Lines adorable 'Emo Crystal' image, I think she's such a sweetie!
I tried to go with neutral and earthy tones for this, but I think it was a mistake. Although it is better in real life than this scan, it still looks a bit 'wishy washy' to me!

Card Details:
* Image - Just Some Lines digi 'Emo Crystal'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Joanna Sheen 'Pastel Lace' and DCWV 'Old World'
* Punch - MS Double Scallop
* Everything else from my stash

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out the other DT cards, they're fabulous. I hope you can manage to join in with us this fortnight and I'm already looking forward to seeing all your creations.

Hello, Chrissie! The first card is so crazy cute! I know some little boys that would love that! Very fun details. The second card had me saying out loud "oh my gosh!" Beautiful card! The image is just so amazing! "Just Some Lines" can evoke such tender emotions. Gotta see more!

Hugs,

I wouldn't call it wishy washy at all. Subtle is the word and I like subtle. Such a sweet image too. And the little chap on the skateboard looks realy cute.
Two great cards.
