Sketch N Stash #148

Morning all, well here I am for this fortnight's Sketch N Stash Challenge for which we have TWO sponsors again.
I just couldn't resist making 2 cards this fortnight as I really enjoyed working with this sketch and I have to take the opportunity before my Mojo goes MIA again!

For the very first time, we are being sponsored by the fabulous Rick St Dennis
who offers our first winner either 2 digis or a discount coupon from Zibbet for his store.
Here is a little bit of information about Rick:  
Rick St,dennis MFA has been an artist, designer, stage designer and instructor for over 45 years, you can find his full Bio here. His digital stamp images can be found on Zibbet or Etsy 
Inspiration projects from the Rick St.dennis Elite Design Team can be found on the Sparkle and Glitter blog, or for the darker images on the Airless Chambers blog.
Rick also has a personalblog  and on Facebook there is the RickSt.dennis Digi fans and friends group, showcase your cards and other projects using RSD images there to be eligible to win prizes.

The other company is Crafty Devils one of our regular sponsors, and they are offering our second winner a £10 voucher to be used in their store.

My first card uses one of Rick's images called 'Lady St John Smythe shopping at Harrods' isn't she fabulous? I just love those minks around her neck, I remember my grandmother having some (not quite as many as this though)
The papers are from my stash and are some I've had so long I can't remember who they're by. Lady Smythe is finished off with some diamond stickles for a bit of sparkle on her jewellery and her doggie's collar.
The colours seem to have changed slightly on this scan, in real life the aquas and pinks match perfectly!

For my second card I decided to use one of the gorgeous Uptown Girl images by Stamping Bella, this one is called 'Clarissa & Camille Coffee'
Do you like the funky colour palette? It's OK if you wear your sunglasses ha ha!
I matched this up with some papers from my stash (I think they are K & Co) and finished off by punching some butterflies out of the same papers. The punch is Martha Stewart 'Monarch Butterfly' and the final touch was the pink gems decorating the bodies of the butterflies.
The colouring on both cards was done with my beloved Promarkers (of course!)

If you pop over to the challenge blog you can check out what my lovely teamies have done this time and see who won the last challenge and who were voted our Top 3.
