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!Supplies : Image : Choupinou Skating by CoCo Dingo Sentiment : Freebie from Craft Stamper magazine Mediums : Polychromos pencils;low odour oils thinners;Archival Ink in Jet Black Papers & card : Hopscotch by K & Co DPs ;Papermania Textured card Tools : X-cut guillotine;Martha Stewart Traditional Scallop Edger Punch;Siesta Frames large corner rounder punch;Crafts Too Stars embossing folder;Nestabilities Labels 1;Nestabilities Standard Circles;Big Shot Here are some challenges this is an entry for : Scrap – Creations – Gotta Go Digi Cards for Men – Transport Digital Tuesday – Sports Design Dollies – Happy Birthday…to you The Creative Cottage – Birthday Boy Little Red Wagon – Stars AiFactory – For the Boys C.R.A.F.T. – Colouring pencils only Fussy and Fancy – Christmas colours If The Shoe Fits…Scrap It! – 80’s (I remember skateboarding being HUGE in this decade in the U.K. and my brother being REALLY into it.I also remember,being about 12 at the time, sitting on it when I thought noone was looking and rolling down our drive because I was too scared to stand up on it!!)
