Crafters Companion



Over at It's a Crafters Companion this week Rachel, after a lot of thought and begging from CC lovers has decided to run a little competition. She wants you to draw your own sketch and make a card from it. You cannot enter your card into any other challenge, but just for this week. I had such a lot of fun creating this, mind you this is maybe my fourth attempt at this sketch getting it right. I have never made a sketch before so I am pretty pleased. The papers are from Summer Stories disc, the image is from Happy Days stamp set, coloured with distress inks. I used one of the scenes from the Summer stories cds as well for the background image. Added some ribbon, flower and leaves. Hope you like it. If you get time have a wee go at this. Its a lot of fun creating and working with your own sketch and a good excuse to get those crafters companion items which have been neglected like mine lol.
