Sketch N Stash DT Card #68
Well, the move to Norfolk is over and we're (kind of) settled. The good news is that we absolutely LOVE our new home and couldn't have wished for a friendlier village to live in. The bad news....I'm missing my 'boys' like crazy!!! They both came up last Friday for the weekend and that was the first time I'd seen them in over 4 weeks. That may not seem like a long time, but as we've always lived so near each other it was the longest I'd ever gone without seeing them. We had a lovely weekend, but once they left for home I shed a few tears, I was so sad to see them go. The emotional turmoil wasn't helped by the fact that it was my beloved Mum's birthday and I still miss her every single day.
On a happier note I managed to join in with a card for SNS again (oh how I've missed those girls!!)
Our fabulous sketch for this challenge was designed by Sue and I loved using it. I had a special card to make for my Aunt's birthday and I was so pleased with how it came together with this sketch, I hope she will be too. This is an 8"x8" card so lots of space to fill, which was a bit scary after not crafting for so long!
* Image - Debbi Moore 'Splendour of Regency' CD
* Sentiment - Sentiments 4 You
* Colouring medium - Joanna Sheen 'Spectrum Noir' pens
* Papers - Hot Off The Press
* Punch - MS 'Doily Lace'
* Flowers - Joanna Sheen 'Kort and Godt' range
* Everything else from my stash
Now, some of you may be wondering why I have 'colouring medium' on the above list when I've used a CD image!!! well I thought it looked a bit 'washed out' so I coloured the regency lady with some of my new Spectrum Noir pens (I think these may become as well loved as my promarkers!)
I used some gold Cosmic Twinkles to highlight the 'frame corners' of the printed image and to add a bit of sparkle to the metal photo corner I used on the card and I even remembered to use one of my pearl hat pins, another first!
