Shell is hosting the Willow Sketchie Challenge this week and here’s her fabby sketch :

The theme is Make Your Own Backing Papers.You can choose the sketch or theme.Or even both! You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

I started with the background on my card.I used an old stamp I”ve had for a few years that I bought in a set when I first discovered Willow Designs.Unfortunately they’ve been discontinued.I stamped directly onto the card blank and coloured them with Polychromos pencils blended with oils thinners.I chose warm oranges and yellows to go with all the lovely sunny weather we’re getting at the moment.I then decided to colour a Winnie image from the Winnie Owl digital stamp collection from Willow Designs by using the same method.The strip of Whitewash card has been embossed and sanded.The sentiment is from the the same set as the background flower and the button centres on the words have been stamped again,coloured with the pencils,blended,cut out and layered.It doesn’t show in the pic but they’ve been coated in 3D Lacquer.These cute little die cut flower swirls have been added for some extra detail.I have moved one of these slightly on the sketch as it didn’t look right in the original place 😉
