It’s SKETCH time at Craft Your Passion this week!And here it is :

I love the layered elements and found it a joy to work with.For more details head on over by clicking the link.You’ll see the fabulous cards made by my fellow DT too!

I’ve used Choupinou Skating by CoCo Dingo and I love the movement in this image.I also used the ‘Out-of the-box’ technique when cutting him out.I decided to lay off the Promarkers for a change and used Polychromos pencils instead.I blended them with low odour thinners intended for use with oil paints as they are oil based rather than wax like children’s colouring pencils.And being a bit of a cheap skate I dipped a cheap cotton bud (the cheaper the better I say as they don’t have much cotton on the tip so don’t soak the liquid up) into it rather than a more expensive paper stump.I love this sentiment stamp and it’s already proved very useful.It’s a freebie from October’s issue of Craft Stamper magazine designed by Bev Fletcher of Banana Frog fame.I have to confess I made up the rest of the card and had to wait ’til I got my hands on a copy!
