Friday Sketchers # 90

Melbicks Garden Centre has a 20% off sale this weekend, so I treated myself to the Do-Craft Papermania Goody Bag. What a bargain! For £11.99 (it would have been £14.99) I got loads of gorgeous stuff. Beautiful 'Sunshine Paper Pack', ribbons, 2 packs of tiny buttons, flowers, brads, fasteners, ribbons, gems, a Daisy & Dandelion stamp, etc.

When I got home I had to do something with it straight away, so had a look at some of the challenge blogs to see if anything caught my eye. This is what I found:

A lovely simple sketch from And this is my entry. All made with my new goodies. This is my first Daisy & Dandelion stamp, and I must say that I didn't find it the most enjoyable to colour. I used Prisma pencils and Sansodor.

I added a bit of faux stitching around the outside. I usually use a black pen for this, but for a change I used a white pen - I quite like the effect.

One other thing I want so show you - I'm quite chuffed with myself for this. I was having a play with my Silhouette and used the 'Print and Cut' and welding features for the first time.
From my library I took the candle numbers 1 and 8 and welded them together and re-sized to fit a A4 piece of card. I then sent it to print and then put it into the Silhouette to cut. I cut another piece of card the same shape for the back of the card without cutting the centres out. Magic! I love it. Here it is:And here I've just added a bit of silver glitter pen around the stars and a gold wick.
