Cheers

Good Evening all,

Wow Monday already the weeks just seem to be flying by at the moment. Well I have a card to share with you this evening so I will get on with it as I have a list as long as my arms of things to do this evening. So here is the card:


Well this one is a little different to my usual cards but I am happy with how it turned out. I have used one of my new images from My Heart Pieces and coloured it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. It took me ages to colour in and I would have never been able to do it without the Promarker ultra fine nibs that I got a little while ago. It is such a beautiful image and so well drawn though so it was a pleasure to colour. The challenge over at Sketch n Stash this time is a free choice sketch. So I got to choose from all of the fab sketches they have in their catalouge. I chose Sketch 68

All my backing papers are from a Hunkydory kit I have had for ages and just never got around to using. They are actually card and such great quality they make the card feel a little bit more special. I have embossed the red card with one of my embossing folders to give it a bit of texture and I have punched the corner of the image and the brown design card to make it a bit more interesting. The punch is a Martha Stewart corner punch. I got this along with the border punch in a sale about a year ago so I should really use them more but I forget they are in the drawer, I know thats terrible. I have added a little bit of twine to another piece of Hunkydory card and used that for the centre piece of the card. The diamond sentiment is off of one of the Hunkydory topper sheets that were also in the kit. I have put an eyelet through the top to make it into a tag and added a twine knot to it. I have then added a few buttons from my stash to embellish.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Catz - Embossing
Cute Card Thursday - Punch Drunk
Paperplay - For a Man with Twine
Sketch n Stash - Sketch - New image everything else is old especially the the eyelet.
Cupcake Craft - Eyelet
