Crafty Sentiments #14



This week's inspiration - Use your favourite embellishment (mine are flowers)
What a lovely Sketch Lisa has for you all to play with this week over at Crafty Sentiments! When I first saw the sketch I knew right away what I wanted to do with it (which makes a change for my brain). I used one of the lovely Amy stamps from the AMY COLLECTION now available from Crafty Sentiments. I stamped a tree from patchwork pals set, for the circle I drew round my tape for the circle and make it look like one of those tyre swings, just the perfect size for little Amy. I cut a strip of green card for the grass and added some tiny little flowers with spots of liquid pearls. All the elements are coloured with my promarkers and I chalked parts of the background to get a sky effect. Hope you all get time to play along with this real fun sketch this week and you might be lucky enough to win a lovely prize from our sponsor this week ...the lovely HELEN from ELEPHANTASTIC!

I am entering this into these challenges

1. Passion For ProMarkers - create a background using your promarkers
2. Totally papercrafts - spring (think this is a nice little spring scene)
3. Penny's paper crafty challenge - anything goes
4. Your Next Stamp - stitching (use faux stitching round the sentiment)
5. Papertake Weekly - cutie pie (well I think Amy is a right wee cutie)
