Sketch Saturday week 219

Hello Fellow Crafters...

Hope you all had a wonderful restful or exciting Sunday... I had a lovely restful weekend doing what I love.... what more can a gal ask for..lol

I loved the sketch from the Sketch Saturday team this week

I started with a base of white card (remember I am still on the road to using up all my off cuts and scraps from previous projects) and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint and Victorian Velvet.

I then used an off cut of Coredinations green I think its also Peeled paint and distressed the edges with my little distressing tool. I also added some distress inks to this edge. The floral and stripe paper are from my stash of off cuts and I have no clue what they are called, but I also distressed the edges with my tool and added peeled paint and victorian velvet distress ink to the edges.

The image is from lily of the valley stamps courtesy of my stamping friend Amanda Harrod who kindly allows us to use her stamps once a month, so I am not sure what the number of the stamp is.. but she is adorable. I colored her with my ProMarkers... not great but its OK.

I cut it out with my nestie Oval plain and base of coredinations peeled paint, Petite scallop.

I layered the papers as per the sketch and added the gold ribbon folding it under the green card. Layered my image with foam tape to give her some height and added my little bling and bow.

Finally to finish I added some glossy accents and iridescent glitter to her wings and some liquid pearl on her shoe and her little top.

That's it for today folks... hope you like my attempt at this weeks sketch

have a great week ahead
